The royal family and the world at large are mourning the loss of the late Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, who was 99-year-old at the time of his death last week.

For the Duke of Cambridge, he has the sole job of explaining details of his grandfather's passing to his three children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Since his kids are young, the 36-year-old and his wife Kate Middleton have sought a more gentle way of explaining things to their little ones. According to insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge told their kids that Prince Philip had gone to heaven and is now an angel.

William's kids are reportedly upset about their great-grandfather's passing, especially George and Charlotte. Their youngest son Louis has only met the late 99-year-old a couple of times.

Many anticipate that Prince Philip's funeral will be the right place and time to put an end to some family rifts.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are deliberate about ensuring their children remember their grandfather's legacy, as they have pictures of the late Duke of Edinburgh hanging in their home.

Reports have revealed that William's three children are not on the list of the 30 people who will be mourning the Duke of Edinburgh during his funeral. William is said to want to protect his kids and avoid them grabbing attention from other relatives who will be gracing the occasion.

After Prince Philip's death, members of the royal family paid tributes to him, notably Prince William and his somewhat brother, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry.

The brothers, in their statements, praised their late grandfather for his service to the country and support to the Queen, who he stood by for more than seven decades.
