It has been announced by Buckingham Palace that His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh has died.
The Rt Revd Martin Seeley, Bishop of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, paid tribute to Prince Philip on behalf of the Diocese’s 630,000 residents and more than 450 parishes.
“Prince Philip has been the most remarkable consort to Her Majesty, making the role his own through his distinctive style, intelligence and wit. He has been the Queen’s constant strength and guide through over seven decades of public service. Our thoughts are with his family as we keep them very much in our prayers. May he rest in peace and rise in glory”.
