Death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
As we learn of the sad news that His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh has passed
away the thoughts of the residents of Sutton at Hone & Hawley Parish are with the
Royal Family as they grieve for their Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather.
The Duke demonstrated extraordinary dedication and commitment to duty
throughout the Queen’s reign and did so with strength and admirable
determination. He supported Her Majesty throughout decades of change, from the
dark post war years through to the new horizons of the 21st century, enabling her to
provide essential continuity for the nation.
This is a period of public grief when people who do not know each other come
together to mourn a national figure who has been consistent throughout our lives and
for whom we have collective affection despite not knowing him personally.
