It is with deepest sorrow that we receive news today of the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
On behalf of Louth Town Council and the community of Louth we extend our greatest sympathies to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family.
At this moment in history we come together with the rest of the country in remembering and being thankful for the life of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, a long and remarkable life dedicated to the service of the nation.
The Mayor of Louth, Councillor Darren Hobson said “It is with great sadness that I offer my most sincere condolences on the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip. My thoughts and prayers are with The Queen and The Royal Family at this difficult time.”
As a mark of respect and remembrance, the Union flag, outside Sessions House, will now fly at half-mast until 08:00 hours on the day following His Royal Highness The Prince Philips’ funeral. Further commemorative events may be organised in the coming days, in line with official announcements, which can be viewed at www.royal.uk and an official ebook of condolence may also be made available here.
