Heads of state, dignitaries and social media users took to Twitter to offer words of support to Queen Elizabeth II and Britain following Prince Philip’s passing.

Reaction to the news has been mixed with tributes and mockery pouring in on social media.

Britain’s longest serving consort passed away at Windsor Castle at the age of 99, two months before the centenary of his birth.

Among those offering the words of comfort to the British people are the presidents of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa and that of the United States of America, Joe Biden.

In London, cabs lined the streets to honour the late Prince.

While others gathered outside Buckingham Palace to place flowers at the gate.

However, others have took to social media to express their disdain at the late Prince. Others jokingly pointed out that he is going to hell.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex the wife of Prince Harry along with Piers Morgan also started trending as users speculated that Morgan would somehow blame Meghan for Prince Philip’s passing. This follows her accusing the British royal family of racism, lying, and pushing her to the brink of suicide.
