The world's newspapers today mourned Prince Philip for his service to Britain and devotion to the Queen.
The Duke of Edinburgh's death at Windsor Castle was announced by Her Majesty 'with great sorrow' on Friday, and as Britain began eight days of mourning, countries across the world paid homage to the steadfast prince.
'A Prince like a King,' was the headline in Germany's Die Welt, while Catalonia's La Vanguardia honoured the 99-year-old duke with the words: 'Goodbye to a century of British history.'
Spanish paper ABC carried a full-page picture of the duke doffing a bowler hat during his retirement from public duty in 2017, while The Weekend Australian showed Philip standing beside the Queen, looking at her fondly.
Italian paper Corriere della Sera chose a photo of the Queen and Philip riding together in a carriage with the headline: 'Goodbye to Philip, always one step behind the Queen.'
