HRH The Prince Philip - Duke of Edinburgh
Tring Rural Parish Council are deeply saddened to hear of the death of HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh and would like to extend our deepest condolences to HRH Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family.
HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh served the United Kingdom for more than 70 years firstly as as an officer in the Royal Navy in the second World War, then by the side of HRH The Queen since she ascended the throne in 1952, accompanying her in her duties until his retirement in 2017 at the age of 96.
In 1956 HRH Prince Philip helped create the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, helping young people to gain essential life skills and experience.
In 1961 he became the UK president of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). He supported over 780 organisations, was a keen sportsman and a skilled equestrian.
We hope we can speak on behalf of Tring Rural parishioners in showing our respect at this time to our nations' Royal Family.
Due to Covid-19 a book of condolence will not be available.
