His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
10/06/1921 – 09/04/2021
Message from Councillor Pam Doodes, Chairman of Wealden District Council:
“It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
The Councillors and Officers of Wealden District Council are deeply saddened and our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.”
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, sadly, we are not able to have a designated area for flowers and tributes but we are suggesting that people can make donations if they so wish. We understand the financial pressures of the current situation so please do not feel obliged to donate. However, for those who wish to and are able to do so, The Duke of Cambridge has launched an urgent appeal asking those who can, to donate money to the National Emergencies Trust to help local charities, distribute money and support victims in combatting the impact of the pandemic.
For details of arrangements in your area, please visit your Town/Parish website. A list of the Town and Parish details can be found on our website.
Book of Condolence:
Regrettably, due to the pandemic there will be no public condolence book set up at the Wealden District Council offices but members of the public wishing to express their condolences are encouraged to send a message to the Royal Family via the online Book of Condolence on The Buckingham Palace website
Church Services: Our local churches are in the process of working through the practicalities of having the church buildings open so that the public may come in to pay respects in this way. We would advise contacting your local church for details.
Please visit The Buckingham Palace website to find further details about what is happening at a national level; details of the funeral arrangements will be available in the coming days.
