oard of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh following the announcement of his death today.

Marie said: “We offer our deepest commiserations to Her Majesty the Queen, HRH Prince Charles and all the Royal Family on the loss of the Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip’s life was spent in public service, from his active duty in the Navy during the Second World War to the tens of thousands of engagements which he carried out over six and a half decades of royal duties. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family today; it is our sincere hope that their memories of Prince Philip will be a comfort to them in the period ahead.”
