Meanwhile, Philip wanted to leave a sum for his grandchildren, including Harry who has launched a string of attacks on his family this year.

The insider claimed Philip “never held a grudge” and wasn’t the sort of person to “punish a grandson for misbehaving”.

The source said: “He was a very fair, even-handed and lovely man. Never held a grudge.”

In addition, Philip reportedly left his children – Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward – a selection of books.

The source told The Sun they were told they could “take what they want” from his collection of 13,000 books in his library at Buckingham Palace.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told the publication: “This is a personal matter for the family and as such arrangements are private.”

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Buckingham Palace for further comment.

Meanwhile, Philip’s funeral took place on April 17 at St George’s Chapel.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 30 guests could attend the service and Harry flew over from the United States to be there.

He joined father Charles and brother William along with Philip’s other kids and grandkids to walk in the procession.
