Death of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh
Statement from Chair of North Hertfordshire District Council, Councillor Terry Tyler:
North Hertfordshire District Council joins the whole nation and the Royal Family in mourning the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. On behalf of all our residents, we would like to express our deepest sympathy to Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family, and recognise the immeasurable contribution the Duke of Edinburgh made to our country. His long, extraordinary life coupled with his sense of duty to the country he served was admirable.
As a mark of respect, the Union flag at the Council’s headquarters in Letchworth Garden City will be flown at half-mast from today. Flags at other Council locations will also be flown at half-mast.
For those who wish to leave flowers in remembrance of His Royal Highness, they can do so at marked out areas in Priory Gardens in Royston, Broadway Gardens in Letchworth and The Cloisters in Hitchin.
We encourage North Herts residents to take a moment to sign Hertfordshire’s online book of condolence.
