His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
10/06/1921 – 09/04/2021
It is with great sadness that we send this message of condolence to Her Majesty The Queen upon the death of her husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with members of the Royal Family and all those touched by his passing.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, sadly, Wealden District Council are not able to have a designated area for flowers and tributes but they are suggesting that people can make donations if they so wish. They 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.
