HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh 1921 – 2021

It was with the greatest sadness that Barling Magna Parish Council learnt of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. The Duke of Edinburgh saw active service during the Second World War and, following a successful naval career, steadfastly supported Her Majesty the Queen following her Accession in 1952, becoming the longest serving British consort in 2009.
His Royal Highness was involved in the work of many charities and organisations, the best remembered of which is probably the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The scheme has inspired millions of young people in more than 140 countries to develop skills, experience adventure and to serve their communities.
Our flag is flying at half-mast as the council joins the Royal family and the country in mourning his loss.
Further announcements will be made in due course.
