The Death of HRH Prince Philip
It has just been announced that HRH Prince Philip past away this morning. This will be a great shock and sadness to the nation and Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. All our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.
HRH Prince Philip has been at The Queens side as her Consort for all my life. His long service to our Nation and to The Queen has been an inspiration to us all. The Duke of Edinburgh Award gave respect and skills to many generations of young people, and his sportsmanship was an inspiration to all older men. His humour and stamina will always be remembered and admired and I for one feel a huge sense of loss and sadness at his passing.
I will inform everyone later what steps we will take to recognise the loss of this great man. In the mean time hold The Queen and the Royal Family in your hearts and prayers.
