HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
Statement from HM Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire, Lord Shuttleworth 9 April 2021
Everyone in Lancashire will join me in expressing our sorrow at the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, who has played a prominent role in the life of our nation for almost 75 years.
We extend our deepest sympathy to those who have suffered the greatest loss, Her Majesty The Queen, Duke of Lancaster, The Prince of Wales and all members of The Duke’s family, and we think of all others affected personally by this sad news.
We also recollect all the marvellous work of HRH, not only at the side and in support of The Queen, but in his own right as leader and influencer of so many organisations and charities.
We here in Lancashire will have our own memories of his visits to the county and his encouragement to so many people on those occasions.
