He was played by Matt Smith for the first two seasons between 2016 and 2017 opposite Claire Foy's Queen.
The actor went on to receive a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the 2018 Emmy Awards for his portrayal.
Tobias Menzies took over the role for the following third and fourth seasons while Olivia Colman became the monarch as new actors were brought in to reflect the ageing process.
Menzies earned himself a nod for Best Actor in a Television Series Drama at the 2020 Golden Globes.
There are a further two series planned with Jonathan Pryce set to succeed Menzies in the role of the Duke of Edinburgh alongside Imelda Staunton's Elizabeth II.
A number of celebrities have also paid tribute to the late royal, with posts made by stars including Piers Morgan, Eamonn Holmes, Geri Horner and Lord Alan Sugar.
