Buckingham remembers HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Buckingham marks the passing of HRH Prince Philip

It is with great sadness that Buckingham Town Council mourns the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

In order to mark the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh, flags will be flown at half mast across the town until the day after the funeral.

We know that some members of our community may want to leave a personal message or consider a gift of flowers or donations.

During the current public health situation, the Royal Family ask that flowers are not laid, instead they ask that you consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral tributes in memory of The Duke.

If you would like to leave a personal message of condolence, this can be done through the Royal Family's online Book of Condolence

The funeral will be on Saturday 17th April, with live broadcasts on television and radio. There will be a minute's silence at 3pm. The Royal Family have asked that no one travels to watch the funeral in person due to Coronavirus restrictions.

Please be reassured that once Coronavirus restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so there will be opportunities to come together to reflect.
