What did Princess Anne say in her tribute?

Meanwhile, Anne, 70, reflected on her relationship with her father in a pre-recorded interview with ITV.

“But above all that it’s not about the technology it’s about the people.”

Anne also spoke about Philip’s nomadic lifestyle when he was growing up in Greece.

She said: “He had a nomadic lifestyle – which must have been really quite difficult because he was that much younger than his sisters.

“The father figure was very intermittent then went and his mother struggled at that stage, so he had friends elsewhere who took him in during the holidays.

“He was virtually a refugee as this stage because he had nowhere else to go literally. And that probably why Gordonstoun had such an impact.”

In addition, Edward also spoke about the loving relationship his father and mother shared.
