Huntingdon responds to the death of HRH Prince Philip

It is with great sadness that we have today learnt of the death of The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, who served and supported his country over many decades with the upmost dedication and distinction. He was a much-loved member of our monarchy and will be sorely missed.
On behalf of the people of Huntingdon, we wish to convey our deepest sympathy and thoughts to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, members of the Royal Family and extended members of the Royal Household at this terribly sad time.
Online Condolence Book
You can include a message in Huntingdon’s online Book of Condolence for The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip by visiting our website, www.huntingdontown.gov.uk.  Once the period of mourning has ended, we will print the book of condolence and have it bound to be kept in Huntingdon Town Hall’s archive.
A letter of condolence will be issued to Buckingham Palace from the Mayor of Huntingdon and will advise that a Huntingdon book of condolence has been created.
If you are a resident of Huntingdon and would like to sign the online condolence book but are unable to do so, please contact town.council@huntingdontown.gov.uk or call 01480 411883 and we will endeavour to assist you. Alternatively, you may wish to sign Buckingham Palace’s book of condolence online by visiting https://www.royal.uk/
Should you wish to lay flowers during the period of mourning, you may do so to the north side of the Town Hall (nearest Barclays Bank).  We would kindly ask that you remove any form of wrapping from the flowers before laying them. At the end of the mourning period, there will be a ceremonial removal of the flowers. All flowers will be taken away to be composted and a tree will be planted in the town, in memory of The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip.
