Desborough Town Council

It is with great sadness that the Council today learned of the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Council wishes to send its condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, on the loss of her dearly beloved husband and companion.  Our thoughts also go out to his family at this very sad time.

Prince Phillip stood by her Majesty’s side for nearly 70 years. She once quoted, “he is my strength and stay”.  They worked well together for the love of their country, he fought for his country, and for that we must grateful.

Rest in peace, thou true and faithful servant.

God Save the Queen
