The passing of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Published: 9 April 2021

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

We will be writing to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family to share our deepest sympathies at this sad time.

The Duke had strong connections to Devon, particularly through our county’s strong military tradition, and we know his loss will be felt keenly by many people here, who admired his commitment, service and steadfast support to Her Majesty.
