The Duke of Edinburgh – 1921 – 2021

HRH The Duke of EdinburghAs Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire I would like to express huge sadness on the death of The Duke of Edinburgh.   We remember him with huge affection and gratitude for his support to Her Majesty The Queen in her duties, his sense of fun, loyalty and his total dedication to duty.

Many young people are especially thankful for his initiation of the successful Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and we will also remember him for his extensive work with wildlife, sport and the Armed Forces.

We shall miss him and offer our greatest sympathy to The Queen and the Royal Family on their loss of a much loved husband, father, grandfather and friend.



BBC Radio Shropshire will be broadcasting a live Civic Service for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh tonight at 6.30 via BBC sounds, 96FM or your digital radio.
