Following the announcement of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, HRH Prince Philip, the Bishop and the Dean of Worcester have offered the following tributes: The Bishop of Worcester, Dr John Inge said: “Millions of people, not just in this country but across the globe, will be saddened to learn of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. As a most wonderful consort to Her Majesty the Queen, he has been centre stage for decades, bringing his considerable wisdom and wit to bear on so many situations. I join in giving thanks for the long life of a remarkable man and pray that he will rest in peace and rise in glory. I pray for comfort for all who mourn his passing, especially Her Majesty the Queen and all the Royal Family.” The Dean of Worcester, Peter Atkinson, said: “Prince Philip was a much-loved figure on the world stage for many decades. His support for Her Majesty the Queen throughout their long marriage, and his devotion to duty through countless public engagements until very recently, mark him out as one of the great men of our time. We mourn his passing, and are united in prayer for the Queen and the Royal Family.” The Church of England has an online condolence book for people to leave a message in memory of HRH Prince Philip on their website.
