CONDOLENCE BOOK AND CHARITY DONATIONS FOR HRH PRINCE PHILIP

The Royal Family has set up an official e-book of condolence at www.royal.gov.uk

A selection of messages received will be passed onto members of the Royal Family and may be held in the Royal Archives.
In light of the current COVID-19 restrictions, and in line with the Royal Family’s wishes, residents wanting to express their condolences are being encouraged to make a donation to a charity of their choice, or one of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Patronages in his memory, instead of leaving floral tributes. More information about the charities and organisations the Duke supported are at https://www.royal.uk/dukes-charities-and-patronages

Statement from the Mayor of Test Valley, Councillor Martin Hatley, on behalf of the residents of Test Valley:

“It is with deep sadness that we learn of the passing of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, aged 99. HRH served The Commonwealth with passion, commitment and integrity, supporting and providing wise counsel to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for many decades

His service to the country through the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force, and the love and devotion he showed to the Royal Family as a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather shall never be forgotten.

His Royal Highness also had close links to the borough and to The Broadlands Estate in Romsey where he spent his honeymoon with Her Majesty The Queen. On behalf of all the residents of Test Valley, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to all who knew and loved him.

As a sign of respect and gratitude, the flags at the council’s buildings have been lowered to half-mast.”
