“We are all a little sad, coping individually in our own ways.
“But it’s both remarkable & delightful that dad is still so clearly loved by so many. Yes, he’s missed... but with so much of “him” in the work he made, he’s clearly still here. (sic)”
Duncan’s post comes after Bowie’s widow, Iman, paid tribute to her late husband on what would have been his 74th birthday, just two days before the anniversary of his death.
She shared a poignant quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson, which read: "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you. I could walk through my garden forever."
Before sharing a picture of Bowie performing, captioning it: "#BowieForever."
Meanwhile, Iman previously said she would "never" marry again after Bowie’s death.
The model said: "David is in our hearts and minds on a daily basis, for all of us. You know, this was my true love. My daughter once asked me if I would ever marry again and I said, 'never'... He's hiding in plain sight. His fans are still around, his music is still relevant. And on the day of his passing, I went on a hike and a bluebird flew in front of me. A bluebird, above all things!"
And Iman - who has daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, 20, with the late star, and is stepmother to Duncan, whom Bowie has from a previous marriage - also revealed that despite their fame and success, their relationship "could not have been more regular".
She added: "It was a really everyday marriage. He was a very funny, warm gentleman – you know, everyone talks about him being futuristic, but no, he was not, he liked more than anything to wear a three-piece suit. It was a beautiful, ordinary life and that was what was great about it. We could live in New York, pick up our daughter from school, walk everywhere ... You know, I wish we had had more years."
