In Remembrance
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh


It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

The Duke was Married to the Queen Elizabeth ll for more than 70 years and became the longest serving Consort in British History.

It is with great sadness that Hatfield Town Council learned today of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

We will remember him for the many things he inspired which have changed our world for good during his lifetime.  Young people especially will remember him for the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, which he started in 1956 and which continues in schools and youth organisations to this day.  Prince Philip has left us a legacy, to remember conservation and to look after nature, trees, animals and our planet and was a leader in recognising global warming ahead of his time.

The Council and residents of Hatfield extend condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time.

Cllr M. Eames-Petersen, Mayor, Cllr L Brandon Leader and Cllr C Juggins Deputy Leader


We have also been asked about books for expressing condolences online, which can be accessed at this website:

The web page welcomes you to this online book of remembrance and further says, “For HRH Duke of Edinburgh who sadly passed away on 9th April 2021.”

You can submit an entry, or view other entries.

We would also like to add that St Etheldreda’s Church, Fore Street, Old Hatfield AL9 5AN is open for people to light a candle for Prince Philip and to show their support for the Queen
