It is with very great sadness that we have heard of the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
It was in Devon as a young naval officer, training at Britannia Royal Naval College, that Prince Philip met and later married Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Not surprisingly therefore the County has been important to them both throughout their lives and they have visited us here many times.
We give thanks for a wonderful life. May he rest in peace.
