HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
Following the announcement of the death of The Duke of Edinburgh, the Chairman of Norfolk County Council, Cllr Keith Kiddie said:
"This is a sad day for our country and Norfolk County Council joins in the nation's mourning for His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh with a special feeling of affection and sadness arising from his long and happy periods of residence in our county with The Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
"The Duke served our country with great distinction throughout his life and graced many events in Norfolk with his presence over the years. The fact that he kept so resolutely to a full programme of engagements across so many decades until his retirement from public life is evidence of the commitment and sense of duty which marked the whole of his service. I shall be writing on behalf of Norfolk residents expressing our sincere condolences.”
Flags will be flown at half-mast until 8am on the day following the funeral. The funeral at St George’s Chapel, Windsor will be broadcast on Saturday 17 April from 2.30pm.
