"They will be very upset when they hear what happened," he said before departing to the island to inform them of Prince Philip's passing."The prince was a very important man to us all and it's a great loss," Wahe said. "I was very upset to hear the news myself and it is now my duty to abandon my plans for the weekend with my family to drive to tell the others."
