Lord Lieutenant

"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."

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council

"His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh was a wonderful supporter of Her Majesty the Queen and carried out his duties tirelessly. Our thoughts are with Her Majesty and the Royal Family at this very difficult time."

Terence Herbert CEO of Wiltshire Council

"His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. I know the sense of loss will be felt throughout the country including here in Wiltshire."
