On behalf of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, and the people of Rhondda Cynon Taf, I would like to express our great sadness on hearing the news of the death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and offer condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal family at this time.
His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh has lived a long life, dedicated to public service, devoted to the crown and the Commonwealth.
As the founder of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, he made a huge impact on the lives of young people throughout the country, and there will inevitably be a profound sadness felt across our communities, our nation, and throughout the Commonwealth at his passing.
Flags across the County Borough will be flown at half-mast during the official mourning period.
Further details on public condolence arrangements will be released shortly.
Councillor Susan Morgans
Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf
