Death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

It is with great sadness that Buckinghamshire Council hears of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. We send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family on behalf of the residents of Buckinghamshire.

The Chairman of the Council, Richard Scott, has written to The Royal Household to express our sympathies.

Flags will fly at half-mast at the Council offices in Amersham, Aylesbury, Denham and High Wycombe from today (9 April) until after the funeral has taken place.

Once the Royal Household has confirmed its arrangements we will be making books of condolence available and a two-minute silence observed. Details to follow.
