HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Sending sincere condolences and my thoughts and prayers to the whole Royal Family at this time but especially The Queen. A time of great sadness, loss and grief but also celebrating and remembering the absolutely remarkable, inspiring and wonderful man Prince Philip was! I remember being there when The Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen touched down in their helicopter on campus whilst I was a student at the University and my excitement and the honour of being so close to them. Both were full of smiles and chatted so openly, such a highlight! An incredible legacy of devotion to duty, to young people, the natural world, to those from less fortunate backgrounds and many strong passions. His Duke of Edinburgh Awards will have changed millions of lives, his many legacies will live on for generations. With much love, Lucy.
