HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Salisbury City Council express condolences upon the passing of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
The Mayor of Salisbury, Councillor John Walsh, on behalf of all the citizens of Salisbury, would like to express sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen, and also the Royal Family, on the death of her husband and Consort, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Councillor John Walsh said “Many citizens will remember Prince Philip’s last visit to the City on 1 May 2012 as part of the Diamond Jubilee Tour. He will long be remembered as someone who dedicated his life to this Country in so many ways, and for his commitment and devotion to Her Majesty The Queen.”
The flag at Salisbury Guildhall will also be flown at half-mast as a mark of respect at this sad time.
Due to covid restrictions there will be no book of condolences at the Guildhall. Instead members of the public will be invited to share their thoughts and memories of the Duke of Edinburgh via Wiltshire Council’s special on line book of condolence which can be found here
The public are also welcome to light a candle at Salisbury Cathedral, which will be open at set times for this purpose. Buckingham Palace has requested that people refrain from leaving floral tributes and the Royal Family have asked that members of the public make a donation to charity instead.
