We are all deeply saddened to hear that His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has passed away at the age of 99 today.
Prince Philip has been the husband of our Queen since 1947, playing a huge part in her reign, supporting her in good and bad times, for our great nation. He was also a naval officer during the Second World War, part of the Mediterranean Fleet.
Many young people have had their lives enhanced by The Duke of Edinburgh’s award, which promotes young people to improve confidence and life skills, which was set up by The Prince many years ago.
Prince Philip leaves a rich legacy of steadfast service to our country.
He will be sadly missed.
