09 Apr Farewell, Prince Philip
It has been announced by Buckingham Palace that His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh has passed away peacefully today.
We join the nation in mourning the death of His Royal Highness.
The flags on public buildings around the county have been lowered to half-mast.
An online book of condolence will be available on Buckingham Palace’s website: www.royal.uk . If you do not have online access, you can send a message of condolence to the Chairman’s Office, Room 102, West Sussex County Council, County Hall, Chichester PO19 1RQ.
Because of the current COVID-19 guidance and restrictions, people are urged to please avoid gathering in public places: for example, rather than laying flowers in a public area, they may wish to display a floral tribute at home.
