HRH Prince Philip

Girton Parish Council and residents express their deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, members of the Royal Family and the extended members of the Royal Household on the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh. 

He dedicated his life to serving the nation in particular supporting the Queen since her Accession in 1952.  He has been Patron, President or member of over 750 organisations of which the Duke of Edinburgh Award may be best known by members of our communities.

The United Kingdom will forever be grateful for all that he has done both at home and abroad.

May he rest in peace.
