Statement from the Mayor of Lichfield, Councillor Mrs Deborah Baker, following the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

On behalf of the City of Lichfield, I would like to convey our deepest sympathies to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family upon the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. All our thoughts are with them at this sad time.

Prince Philip served our nation for many years, both Royal Consort to HRH The Queen and in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. He was an excellent patron to hundreds of charities and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme will continue to remind us of him. He was truly an exemplar of public service and loyalty.

If you would like to pay your respects, there is an online book of condolence
