The Duchess of Cambridge has released a previously-unseen photograph of the Duke of Edinburgh with Prince George, taken at Sandringham when her son was two.

The 2015 picture, which appears to have been taken at Wood Farm cottage on the Sandringham Estate, shows Prince Philip sitting beside George on a carriage.

The picture on social media was accompanied by a heartfelt tribute to his 'grandpa' by Prince William.

He said: "My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family.

"I feel lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life – both through good times and the hardest days.

"I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to get to know my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her.

"I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour!

"My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation. Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support the Queen in the years ahead. I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job."
