    To pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh and his 100 years, the internet has seen a wave a tributes, with multiple throwback pictures of Prince Philip making headlines.

    The ITV reporter, Romilly Weeks, was reporting on Prince Philip and The Queen’s diamond wedding anniversary back in 2007, speaking on camera live from the event about the occasion.

    Whilst walking past her, Prince Philip stops and listens in to her report, asking the very surprised reporter if she was finished at the end with a big smile.

    Royal family members have also been marking the day, with the Queen releasing photographs today of a touching gift she was given in her husband’s memory – a Duke of Edinburgh rose.

    ‘Last week, The Queen was given a Duke of Edinburgh rose to mark what would have been The Duke’s 100th birthday,’ the royal family posted to social media.

    ‘The rose was gifted by @The_RHS, of which The Queen is Patron. Named in The Duke’s memory, the rose is planted in the East Terrace Garden, Windsor Castle.’

    The post continued: ‘In 1956 His Royal Highness founded The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme which he described as a “do-it-yourself growing up kit.”

    ‘For every Duke of Edinburgh Rose sold, a donation will be made to The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Living Legacy Fund.’
