The death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

April 9th 2021

Public Notice

Orwell Parish Council
The Council was very saddened to hear that HRH the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has passed away. On behalf of the community of Orwell we join the millions of people to pay tribute to him and his lifetime achievements.  Through loyal dedication, personality and hard work he was an integral part of national life and he will be sorely missed.
Prince Philip unfailingly supported Her Majesty during a long reign. Her Majesty’s unwavering presence, with the Prince at her side, has been a constant source of comfort and confidence to us all. She has publicly acknowledged Prince Philip’s steadfast support over this very long period and we too wish to recognize this support.
Prince Philip combined these duties with a strong sense of family responsibilities and we send our most sincere and loyal condolences to Her Majesty and to the whole of his family at what will be a very difficult time for all of them. He combined these duties with a strong sense of family responsibilities.  His family will share these feelings of loss and sadness with the other families in this land in facing bereavement and the loss of a loved one, but we hope they will be helped and their spirits lifted by the knowledge that their grief is shared by many millions worldwide who admired the Prince. His life will be remembered in many ways, not the least of which will be the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme which he founded in 1956.
We send our sincere condolences and loyal best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and to the whole of the Royal Family.
Orwell Parish Council
