Causeway UUP express condolences
The Causeway Coast and Glens Ulster Unionist Group has expressed sincere condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and to the wider family circle following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
Group Leader Cllr Richard Holmes said: “Prince Philip set an example to us all with a life of service and devotion. From distinguished service in the war through his many years by the Queen’s side he was an inspiration.
“His Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme leaves a legacy which has impacted so many young people across the nation.
“As with every public figure we feel we know them and own them and we all grieve for them. But Prince Philip was also a husband of 73 years, a father, grandfather and great grandfather. They are a family mourning a loved one and our thoughts and prayers will surround the family circle at this time.”
