The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021
We join with the rest of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in mourning the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and give thanks to God for his extraordinary life of dedicated service. We offer our deepest condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family as we pray for them to know God’s comfort in the days and weeks ahead. Prince Philip consistently put the interests of others ahead of his own and, in so doing, provided an outstanding example of Christian service – something that could not be more important in these difficult times for our nation.
A national Book of Remembrance is available at https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-his-royal-highness-prince-philip. The Union Flag will fly at half mast and prayers said at our services during the eight days of official mourning. The bell is tolled in his memory at noon on Saturday 10th April.
