The Mayor of Waverley, Councillor Penny Marriott commented:
“On behalf of all the residents of Waverley I would like to express how deeply saddened we are at the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. He leaves behind a huge legacy of sacrifice and service to the country through his time in the military and an incredible range of charitable works.
All our thoughts are with Her Majesty and the Royal Family at this time.”
Although this is an extraordinarily difficult time for many, we ask you not to gather at Royal Residences, and continue to follow public health advice particularly on avoiding meeting in large groups and on minimising travel.
We are supporting the Royal Household, in asking that floral tributes should not be laid at Royal Residences at this time and, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are also unable to accommodate floral tributes in the borough. You can find information regarding donation in lieu of flowers as well as the online book of condolence at https://www.royal.uk/
