Transcript for Prince Philip remembered in UK as tributes pour in from around world
Remembrances and gun salutes taking place this morning following the death of queen Elizabeth's husband prince Philip. Maggie Rulli joins us from Buckingham palace with the latest. Maggie, good morning to you. Reporter: Hi, whit. Good morning. Yeah, those gun salutes are happening right now across the uk, in gibraltar and at sea. Hearing them is a moving tribute to prince Philip's life of service and his storied military career as well and I heard you guys mentioning those growing memorials across the country. Right behind me, Buckingham palace, there has been a constant stream of people all day yesterday, all day today and, whit, even in the middle of the night families coming here to pay their respects. This morning, a nation and the world remembering a man who dedicated his life to service and his country. 99 tolls at Westminster abbey, one for each year of prince Philip's full life. The traditional announcement brought to the palace Gates but like all things during the pandemic, the service will look different. Reportedly plans are under way for a private arrangement at Windsor castle as the public is urged to not gather for any related events due to the pandemic. But whatever the size, his legacy will be remembered as larger than life. At Buckingham palace, a constant stream of people paying their respects. Although he's not necessarily been a king, we've all looked at him as a king. Reporter: His children speaking out. You ask anybody who had the privilege of listening to him speak or any of the events he hosted, it was always his humor that came through and the twinkle in his eye. Reporter: ABC news has learned prince Charles visited the queen at Windsor castle shortly after his father's passing. I think he'd probably want to be remembered as an individual in his own right really. Reporter: Prince William and Kate posting this photo of the duke of Edinburgh on social media. Despite the rift in recent weeks between the royal family and prince Harry and duchess Meghan, they posting their condolences online. Reports circulating that prince Harry is expected to return for England for the funeral. Reaction to Philip's passing pouring in from around the world. The longest serving royal spouse, Philip has stood by the queen through 73 years of marriage. He treated everybody as an individual and gave them the respect that he felt that they were due as individuals. Reporter: His family often talking of his love for life and his dedication to service. The duke credited with sparking an enthusiasm for environmentalism. Well, service to him meant to put himself out, not to do necessarily the things he wanted to do for himself but to serve his wife, the queen, and make sure that whatever he did was to the benefit of the people within the United Kingdom for the aspirations of a better society for working better with the environment. Reporter: For so many Philip has been this grandfather figure, a constant in their lives but hearing from some of his family and friends talking about him as a young man reminds us of what an extraordinarily and long life he's lived. I love this photo, the cover of "The times," it shows Philip as a young man and feel like looking at this, you think, wow, what a cool dude, and it reminds you of just what a legacy he leaves behind and what really a full life he lived for these 99 years. The world has been watching his life for quite some time. Thank you.
