Statement from the Mayor of the Borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Cllr Geoff Hipperson.
It is with sadness and great sorrow that we pay our respects to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. We will all remember his dedication to the country and his steadfast support for Her Majesty The Queen over her long reign.
His memory will live on in the hearts of the many west Norfolk residents who viewed him as a regular visitor to the area, having spent so much time at the Sandringham residence with his family.
I will be sending a letter to Her Majesty on behalf of the residents of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk expressing our sincere condolences.
As a mark of respect, our flags will be flown at half-mast.
An e-book of condolence will be available on the official Royal website.
