In Westminster Abbey, where he made promises that defined life of willing duty and spirited Service, we give thanks for His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. A man of rare ability and distinction rightly honored and celebrated, he ever directed our attention away from himself. He put privilege to work and understood his rank as a spur to Service. Working at pace, with so many claims on his attention, he encouraged us to focus, as he was focused, on the things that matter.
His was a discipline and character that seized the opportunity and overcame obstruction and difficulty. We recall, with affection and respect, the sustained offering of a long life lived fully. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, founded by His Royal Highness in 1956, will feature prominently in the Service, with a Tribute to be given by a Gold Award Holder. In recognition of The Duke of Edinburgh’s long-held relationship with the Armed Forces, the Band of the Royal Marines will provide music before and after the Service. The Westminster Abbey and the Chapel Royal Choirs will provide music during the Service.
During his time at The Queen’s side, Prince Phillip was the longest serving royal Consort in history, retiring from official duties in 2017 at 95. Completing over 22,000 official engagements, Prince Phillip was Patron, President, or member of 700 plus organizations. The Duke was also a Navy man and stayed heavily involved in every branch of Service. In 2015, Prince Phillip passed his patronage of The RAF Air Cadets onto The Duchess of Cambridge, making it her first role with an official link to the armed forces and the first time she took over a role from another member of the Royal Family.
