Prince Harry and Meghan Markle paid tribute to Prince Philip following his death on Friday.
"In loving memory of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh," the couple posted on their Archewell website. "Thank you for your service...You will be greatly missed."
Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II and the grandfather of Harry, died peacefully at Windsor Castle on Friday at the age of 99, Buckingham Palace said.
Members of the royal family including Prince Charles, Harry's father, and Prince William, Harry's brother, changed their profile pictures on social media after Philip's death.
The royal's death sparked an outpouring of tributes from public figures and celebrities as the United Kingdom entered a period of national mourning.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's website previously contained information about their charitable foundation and their commercial deals with Netflix and Spotify. That information appeared to have been wiped and replaced with the tribute.
Harry had appeared to have a close relationship with his grandfather. Harry told the "Late Late Show" host James Corden in February that he had stayed in touch with Philip and the Queen over Zoom after he relocated to California last year.
"We've Zoomed them a few times," Harry said. "They've seen Archie running around."
He said that instead of leaving the meeting, Philip would slam his laptop shut. "He just goes 'doof'!" Harry said, mimicking the action.
Philip was the first royal to meet Markle and Harry's son, Archie, in May 2019. Markle said they had "bumped into" Philip on the way to their photo call with their new son on May 8, two days after his birth.
Later that day, the couple released a photo of themselves, Philip, the Queen, and Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, with the newest member of the family.
Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex declined to comment when contacted by Insider.
