US President Joe Biden pays tribute to Prince Philip

US President Joe Biden has paid tribute to Prince Philip’s legacy today from the White House.

President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden highlighted the duke’s devotion to his family and public.

They also noted his service in the army, and his championing of the environment and young people.

“His legacy will live on not only through his family, but in all the charitable endeavors he shaped,” said President Biden.

They are keeping Prince Philip’s family in their hearts.

President Biden was inaugurated in January.

His statement follows the passing of Prince Philip, who served alongside the Queen for 73 years.

Former presidents of the United States have also paid tribute.

In a statement, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “We remember the duke above all for his steadfast support for Her Majesty the Queen.

“Not just as her consort, by her side every day of her reign, but as her husband, her strength and stay of more than seventy years. And it is to Her Majesty and her family that our nations’ thoughts must turn today.

“Because they have lost not just a much loved and highly respected public figure but a devoted husband and a proud and loving father, grandfather and in recent years, great grandfather.

“Speaking on their golden wedding anniversary Her Majesty said that our county owed her husband a greater debt than he would ever claim or we shall ever know, and I am sure that estimate is correct.

“So we mourn today with Her Majesty the Queen. We offer our condolences to her and all her family.

“And we give thanks as a nation and kingdom for the extraordinary life and work of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.”
