Statement from Premier King on the Death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
I extend to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our deepest sympathy on the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip.
His Royal Highness has been a most dutiful Royal Consort who, in defiance of his advancing years, actively participated in everyday duties and public engagements until 2017. We have been pleased to welcome His Royal Highness to Prince Edward Island numerous times since 1951 when he first visited with Princess Elizabeth prior to her accession to the throne.
I offer our most heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty and Their Majesty’s children and grandchildren, and to all who mourn his loss worldwide.
Office of the Premier
