HRH The Duke of Edinburgh10 June 1921 - 9 April 2021

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness was born on 10th June 1921 and since their marriage in November 1947 He has been a constant support and companion to Her Majesty The Queen and has touched the hearts of all in East Sussex. His commitment to our Queen and our nation has been total and I am sure you will join with me in sending our sincere condolences to Her Majesty and the whole Royal family on His passing.
