Duke of Edinburgh: An extraordinary Prince who led an extraordinary life.
“I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. My profound sympathies are with HM The Queen, the Royal Family, the whole nation and the Commonwealth.
Prince Philip lived a long and remarkable life with a deep commitment to public service. From serving in World War II, to providing unwavering support to Queen and country, Prince Philip exemplified quiet reserve, loyalty, fortitude and integrity.
I have had the pleasure of meeting HRH Prince Philip. I found him considerate, interesting, and knowledgeable about other religions. He promoted interfaith dialogue and urged greater understanding between communities for the common good.
He championed many charitable causes, in particular those concerning young people and the environment. Prince Philip leaves behind a fitting reminder of his incredible work in the form of the #DukeOfEdinburghAwards, that have impacted, shaped and inspired millions of young people. His memory invites us to redirect ourselves to the values to which he devoted his remarkable life.”
