Queen Elizabeth has marked the first anniversary of her husband Prince Philip’s death with an emotional tribute.

The Royal Family’s official Twitter account released a video, comprised of a photo montage of the Prince over his long life. Included were photos of him as a baby, as a dashing naval officer, with his four children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Perhaps most touching was an old photo of Philip leaning over his wife’s shoulder with their faces close together.

It ended with a recent black and white photo of the Duke tipping his hat as if to say goodbye.

Accompanying it was a reading of the poem “The Patriarchs – An Elegy” by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage.

“Remembering His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on the first anniversary of his death,” read the caption. It also included a link to find out more about the Prince’s “life and legacy.”

April 9 marks one year since the Duke of Edinburgh passed away at the age of 99. He was married to the Queen for 73 years.

Last month the Royal Family attended a memorial service honoring the late Prince, not without making some news.

The Queen was escorted by her son Prince Andrew — who was recently stripped of his military ties and HRH styling — to the Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle were no shows at the service, having been embroiled in a legal fight with the Home Office over protection for himself and his family in the U.K.

Prince Charles also remembered his father’s death on Instagram sharing three photos including a sweet photo of the Duke pushing a young Charles and Princess Anne on a swing.
