Gary Smith laid a flag on the bottom earlier than chatting with The Unbiased. He referred to as the prince a “improbable chief” and mentioned the royal had left “a large void to fill”. “He had a fantastic sense of humour and banter with the fellows,” Mr Smith mentioned.
“He served with absolute distinction, so we’re all devastated following the information of his passing.”
