Rest in peace The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021

Our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, HRH The Prince of Wales and the rest of the royal family on the sad passing of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99.

Cambridgeshire County Council has advised the following protocol.

Flag flying
Flags should be flown at half-mast until 20.00hrs on the day of the funeral.

Laying of Floral Tributes
In line with national guidance, members of the public should make a donation rather than lay flowers. This is for their own safety and also corresponds with the wishes of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

Books of Condolence
Further to national guidance and advice from Public Health councils will not make a physical book of condolence available. Arrangements are being made for libraries that are opening on Monday to provide a place for people to post messages of condolence for the Duke of Edinburgh. We will advise which libraries will be offering this service shortly.
