Statement from the Chair of Devon County Council
Councillor Stuart Barker
It is with great sadness that we hear of the death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
On behalf of the people of the County of Devon, I convey that sadness and send our deepest sympathies to the Royal Family.
He visited Devon on many occasions, and we especially remember the visit with Her Majesty the Queen as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour.
The Duke was much loved in Devon and admired across the country and the wider Commonwealth when carrying out his public duties.
His contribution and dedication in the service of the country, and his unwavering support to Her Majesty was, and will continue to be, an example to us all.
Full details of arrangements being made throughout Devon, including Plymouth and Torbay can be found on the website of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Devon. You can also find out more information, and send a message of condolence, at www.royal.uk.
