Eddisbury’s MP, Edward Timpson CBE, has added his tribute to those of so many others up and down the country and around the world on the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh this morning at Windsor Castle.
Further details of funeral arrangements will be announced by Buckingham Palace in due course. Members of the public are being encouraged to mourn the Duke's passing in Covid-safe ways.
The Chairman of the Conservative Party, the Rt Hon Amanda Milling MP, has announced that all Conservative Party campaigning will be suspended until further notice.
The Government has requested a recall of the House of Commons on Monday 12th April so that members of Parliament will be able to pay formal tribute to His Royal Highness.
Eddisbury MP, Edward Timpson CBE, said:
“My thoughts today are with The Queen and all members of the Royal Family on the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
“The Duke's life was devoted to the service of our country both in the Royal Navy and as the foremost supporter of our Queen. The entire nation mourns his loss.”
