"It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
As HM Lord-Lieutenant and on behalf of the people of Wiltshire and Swindon, I would like to send heartfelt condolences and prayers to (Her Majesty The Queen and) His Royal Highness's immediate family.
His Royal Highness devoted a major part of his long life to serving Her Majesty The Queen but also had his own full and varied programme of commitments and interests, all carried out with great aplomb and of course a sense of humour.
He was a questioning and engaging guest as those who met him on his many visits to engagements in the county and to his regiments will testify. We last had the pleasure of HRH's company at the Order of St John Care Trust 's Haywood Care Centre in Devizes and the opening of the Prince Philip Barracks at REME Lyneham Garrison.
His Royal Highness will be much missed and will be remembered with the greatest affection and respect."

Prince Phillip was a man who did his best to change the world for the better. He was a man of different stature, a great father, grandfather and great grandfather. His service during the Second World Will be remembered and his part in the Invasion of Sicily will be one of his greatest triumphs. May he be missed. God rest his soul.
My sincerest condolences go to Her Majesty The Queen and the royal family. The Duke Of Edinburgh Prince Phillip, was an inspiration to our nation with a busy life packed with generosity. May his soul rest in peace.
Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, was an inspiration to so many. I have heard and read so many stories about Prince Philips past, but also stories about the things that he did and tried to do during his years in service. He had such a pure soul and will be truly missed.
Rest in peace Prince Phillip, I am proud to have completed the Duke of Edinburgh award which will always be your legacy. My deepest condolences to the Royal family.
I was immensely privileged to have meet HRH Prince Philip, who presented me with a flying scholarship from the Air League, of which he was a patron. He did a tremendous amount to inspire our youth to pursue an interest in aviation, and it was a pleasure to have met with him. Such a sad day for the whole nation.
Thank you to HRH Prince Philip for being such a great support to our Queen and Country, and for everything you did to inspire young people through your DoE awards.

So sad to hear of the passing of HRH Prime Philip, one of the greatest public servants this country has ever had. I remember fondly seeing him at Salisbury Cathedral during the Quuens Diamond Jubilee tour and Her Majesty waiting for him at her car whilst he spent time talking to the crowd. RIP

I have very fond memories of your visit to Cyprus for CHoGM in 1993, when you made a special visit to the serving forces personnel and families. My son, then a toddler, became fractious as you passed by but you still had a kind and gracious word to say to him.
So very sorry to hear this news. A long life of service and devotion to Queen and country, and decorated veteran, who has done so much for our country, the Commonwealth and the environment. A life now ended. Rest in peace HRH The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh. Thinking especially of our wonderful Queen Elizabeth and her family at this terribly sad time.
Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence Ashbridge MBE (Chairman Wiltshire Branch of SSAFA the Armed Forces charity)

Sending the deepest condolences to the Queen and the Royal family. We can only imagine the pain and sadness being felt by her majesty The Queen after such a long and devoted marriage. The Duke of Edinburgh has not only contributed to this country with his work for the environment and the introduction of the Duke of Edinburgh award for young people, but he has also upheld his humour and gave The Queen support throughout her time on the throne. He will be missed and our thoughts go out to The Royal Family as they mourn their loss.
