Prince Charles paid a moving tribute to his father Prince Philip with a heartwarming one-minute video of his ‘life and work’.

The Prince of Wales shared a series of images set to music to celebrate the work of the Duke of Edinburgh with 992 organizations.

The Queen’s faithful husband of over 70 and the country’s longest-serving consort died Friday – just two months before his 100th birthday.

Grieving relatives rushed to pay tribute to the Duke, with Prince Charles previously describing him as his ‘sweet daddy’ and a ‘very special person’.

In a video shared on Charles and Camilla’s official Twitter page, the Duke is seen throughout his life, both on official duties and in a more relaxed setting with his children.

Last week, the Prince of Wales said in a recorded video message that his father had rendered “the most remarkable, devoted service” to “The Queen, to my family and the land,” as well as to the Commonwealth.

The Duke of Edinburgh was, he said, a “very special person” who would have been “deeply moved” by the grief felt by millions in Britain and around the world at the news of his death.

He said he would miss his father ‘greatly’ and added that his family were ‘very grateful’ for the condolences offered, which he said would ‘support us’ in these ‘very sad times’.

Prince Charles ended his message by simply saying, “Thank you.”

It comes as the Queen stoically returned to royal duties yesterday – four days after her husband’s death Duke of Edinburgh

The 94-year-old monarch organized a retirement ceremony for the former Lord Chamberlain Earl Peel on Tuesday.

It comes after her 73-year-old husband, Prince Philip, died at Windsor Castle on Friday at the age of 99.

As moving tributes poured in for the Duke from across the country, including flowers left in residences such as Windsor and Buckingham Palace, the family heralded a two-week period of royal mourning.

But in a move that typifies the Queen’s deep sense of duty, she returned early to bid farewell to Earl Peel – an important royal aide who is retiring after 14 years of service.

Earl Peel was the Lord Chamberlain, the most senior officer role in the royal family. He had overseen the arrangements for the duke’s funeral – known as Operation Forth Bridge.
