PRINCE PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH

10 June 1921 – 9 April 2021

Bourtons’ Parish  Council is deeply saddened by the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh.

The council offers its sincerest condolences to the Royal Family.

Many parishioners will have fond memories of Prince Philip especially those who remember him when he accompanied the Queen on her visit to Banbury in 2008.

We can look back on his life and be thankful that he was the husband of and consort to our Queen for so many years – and that he was a constant source of support to Her Majesty.
