HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
28 May 1921 – 9 April 2021
It is with great sadness that Kingsley Parish Council learnt of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and would like to extend our deepest condolences to HRH Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family.
Before retirement in 2017, at the age of 96, HRH Prince Philip undertook duties across the world – a life that was one of remarkable service to the United Kingdom for more than 70 years.
Standing with distinction as an officer in the Royal Navy in the second World War, HRH Prince Philip became the longest-serving consort in history, by the side of HRH The Queen since the ascension to the throne in 1952.
HRH Prince Philip founded the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme which began in 1956, with the aim of assisting young people to gain essential skills, experience, confidence and resilience to successfully navigate adult life. Later becoming the UK president of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in 1961 – remaining President emeritus.
We hope we can speak on behalf of Kingsley residents in showing our respect at this time to our nations’ Royal Family.
If you wish to pay your respects by laying flowers, these can be placed around the War Memorial in Kingsley Cemetery. Please remove any cellophane first. Any cards or notes will be kept and used to create an archive.
