Simon Hart – 2021 Statement Following Death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

The statement made by Simon Hart, the Secretary of State for Wales, on 10 April 2021.

Prince Philip was a phenomenal public servant who led an inspirational life of dedicated support to the nation’s longest-reigning monarch.

He leaves a remarkable legacy including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award which will continue to inspire generations of young people across Wales and the United Kingdom for many years to come.

It is with great sadness that we mourn his passing and I offer my sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the entire Royal Family.
