Tributes paid to HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

Provost of Argyll and Bute, Councillor David Kinniburgh said:

“It is with sadness that we learned about the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duke of Edinburgh gave decades of service to Great Britain. He leaves a tremendous legacy through his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme which has benefited the lives of so many young people. His loss will be felt by many. We send our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and his family at this sad time.”

The Lord-Lieutenant of Argyll and Bute, Mrs Jane MacLeod, said: “My thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family as they mourn the passing of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh - a much-loved husband, father and grandfather as well as a man who dedicated so many decades of his life to public service. He will be sorely missed and I send my condolences and deepest sympathy to the Royal Family at this very sad time.”

In line with national guidance, the Union Jack will fly at half mast from council buildings.
