The Duke of Edinburgh
1921 - 2021

Prince Phillip

Northumberland County Council is deeply saddened by the passing of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

We join with the rest of the nation to offer our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Northumberland on a number of occasions, most memorably in 1958 when the Royal Yacht Britannia anchored off the Northumberland coast, on a visit to Holy Island.

Prince Philip will long be remembered for his dedication to his role as Consort and support to Her Majesty and also for his commitment to the many causes he championed.

Cllr Ian Hutchinson, Civic Head of Northumberland County Council


Please send your message of condolence to the National Book of Condolence on the Royal Family website. A selection of messages will be passed onto members of the Royal Family, and may be held in the Royal Archives for posterity.

As a sign of respect to His Royal Highness, and following public health advice, in order to minimise any risk of Covid-19 transmission, we politely ask any flowers as tribute be placed in residents’ front gardens, windows or where relevant business’ frontages, rather than at the County Hall in Morpeth.
