After the sad announcement of the passing of Prince Philip, we remember some of the Duke of Edinburgh's visits from across the region.

One of his earliest visits came in 1953, a little over a month after the Queen's Coronation, as they wowed the crowds of Rhyl and Wrexham before arriving at the Eisteddfod in Llangollen.

During another early visit, in the summer of 1957, the young Queen and Prince Philip were in Chester for a number of important duties, including opening the city's County Hall.

The couple was back to Chester several times, including in 2012, at Chester Zoo to open their Diamond Jubilee Quarter.

In 1998, the Duke of Edinburgh accompanied the Queen to open Wrexham's Waterworld swimming baths along with Flintshire Bridge on the Dee estuary at Connah's Quay.

Five years later, the Royal couple received a huge welcome again in Wrexham and Flintshire, arriving at Flint railway station by Royal train.

In 2010, the royal pair were on a two-day visit to Wales where they visited the Venue Cymru Arena in Llandudno, and also ventured south to greet people in Welshpool.
