"Harewood Staff, Members, our visitors and residents across Leeds will remember with great warmth his visit to Harewood in 2002 on the occasion of The Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations.
The flag at Harewood House will fly at half-mast and our deepest sympathies are conveyed to Her Majesty The Queen and the rest of the Royal Family at this sad time.
Prince Philip enjoyed many visits to the Harewood House estates over the the years.
In 2002, he and The Queen enjoyed a lunch at Harewood House where guests included the new Leeds boss Terry Venables, followed by a stunning pageant outside featuring a display by the Leeds West Indian Carnival and a presentation from the Chapeltown Laundry Co-operative
Philip was the longest-serving consort in British history.
