It is with great sadness that the Council hears of the sad passing of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Chairman, Cllr. Richard Harris said 'Myself as Chairman, all Councillors and the Clerk to the Council are saddened by the passing of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He has been a wonderful Consort and will be missed around the world as well as here in Presteigne and Norton and throughout the UK.'
The Councillors and Clerk of New Radnor Community Council are saddened by the passing of our HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He has been a wonderful Consort and will be missed around the world as well as here in New Radnor community and throughout the UK. Buckingham Palace made an announcement earlier this morning informing of his passing at home earlier today.
Our thoughts go out to HM Queen Elizabeth II and her family and the people of the United Kingdom. We now enter a 10 Day National Mourning period which commences today, 9th April 2021. Day ten should be the date of the State Funeral, but as this falls on Sunday 18th April, the funeral is likely to be held on Monday 19th April 2021.
Due to current restrictions we are unable to offer a physical book of condolence, however would urge members of the public, should they wish, to offer their thoughts and memories in the National book of condolence at http://www.royal.uk/
