A tender photograph of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip was published on the Royal Family's official Instagram on Saturday morning.

Marking the Duke of Edinburgh's death, the 2016 portrait shows the couple smiling together.

The photograph, shot by celebrated American photographer Annie Liebovitz, is captioned with a 1997 quote by the Queen.

"He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know," the quote reads.

The caption also notes that Prince Philip was a "devoted consort" for almost 70 years.
