Tributes to HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Following the sad news that the Duke of Edinburgh has died aged 99, the Mayor of Knowsley, Cllr Frank Walsh has led the tributes from Knowsley.

He said:

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. On behalf of everyone in the borough of Knowsley, I extend deepest sympathies and sincere condolences to her Majesty The Queen and all of the members of the Royal Family.

 

“In his lifetime, the Duke contributed so much to the nation, not least of which was The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a programme designed to build the confidence and resilience of young people and one which I know  a great many young people in our borough have taken part in, and benefitted from.

 

“As a mark of respect we will be flying the Union Flag at half-mast and we will be opening an online book of condolence so that residents can express their own tributes to the Duke.”

Knowsley pays tribute to The Duke of Edinburgh

The Union Flag is being flown at half mast in Kirkby and Huyton, and will remain so until 8am on Sunday 18 April, the day after the funeral.

In accordance with the wishes of the Royal Family, mourners are asked not to lay flowers in public places. Instead, you may consider giving a donation to your choice of charity. There is no official charity you are asked to support in memory of the Duke, but if you are unsure you may consider The Duke of Edinburgh Award Charity or the Mayor of Knowsley’s Charity, which this year is supporting Willowbrook Hospice.

A special service will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on Sunday, 18 April, 2021 at 3pm. This will be by attendance only in order to meet COVID guidelines, but it will be streamed live online via YouTube.

HRH Queen Elizabeth II Thankyou for your life long humble service and commitment to your vow, which has helped bless our Country with stability and diplomacy.

I had the honour and privilege to serve "The Boss" for 10 years when I served in the RAF. What a remarkable human being she was - I doubt any monarch will ever compare! RIP your Majesty, you have earned your rest.

The sad news of the death of the Queen touches all of us in many different ways. In my small number of encounters with the Queen, I witnessed how she cared deeply and sincerely about our country, our people, and the important role she filled in the Commonwealth It is, perhaps, unfashionable these days to talk about duty and responsibility: our duty and responsibilities to our country and to each other. The Queen was a shining example in the way she embodied the ideal of the duty and the huge responsibilities she carried on her shoulders. Heartfelt thanks for her long and distinguished service to our country.
