Wembley stadium displayed a tribute to Prince Philip, following the announcement of his death aged 99.
The prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, passed away on April 9 and while tributes rang out around the world for the longest serving royal consort in British history, the stadium also paid its respects.
A spokesperson said: "We join the nation in sending our deepest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen on the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh."
Brent leaders like Barry Gardiner, Labour MP for Brent North, spoke of the prince's long life as one of "dedication and duty".
He said thousands of Brent children's lives have been "enriched" by the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, a youth awards programme set up by Prince Philip in 1956.
