One Direction star Liam Payne surprised his fans with his artistic talent as he shared a watercolour painting he had made of Prince Philip in military uniform on his Instagram stories, writing: “Rest in peace HR Prince Philip small tribute to you, thank you for your service.”

Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, who was ousted from the show after his comments about Meghan Markle following her Oprah Winfrey tell-all interview with Prince Harry, also paid his respects.

He tweeted: “Thinking of The Queen today as she says goodbye to the love of her life.”

Morgan also added his thoughts to Instagram, writing: “The Queen, who has devoted her life to selfless public service, will be forced to sit all alone during the funeral of her husband of 73 years, due to covid restrictions. How heartbreakingly sad.”

During the BBC’s coverage of the funeral, Sir David Attenborough shared his memories of having worked with the Duke of Edinburgh on conservation projects.

He said: “He spoke with a passion…he cared about it, but he also knew about it a lot.

“If people are aware that there are problems (with wildlife conservation), a great deal of that is due to him.”
