The Mayor of Ipswich on behalf of the Borough Council, the town’s residents and its businesses expresses her deep condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family on the sad occasion of the death of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh.
His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh served the United Kingdom for many decades, from his wartime service in the Royal Navy until recent years and did so around the world alongside Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
In Ipswich, we recall his visit along with the Monarch to the town in 2002 as part of the Tour to celebrate Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee, as well as earlier visits.
Ipswich Borough Council has lowered its flags to half-mast.
A Royal online book of condolences is now available.
