In Erinnerung - HRH Der Herzog von Edinburgh

Der Stadtrat und die Bevölkerung von Dover sind zutiefst traurig über den Tod von HRH, dem Herzog von Edinburgh. Prinz Philip war mit der Königin für mehr als verheiratet 70 years and devoted himself to a life of outstanding public service and duty. He was a good friend to Dover, Besuch bei Ihrer Majestät in 1958 und wieder in 2006 für die Feierlichkeiten zur Gründung des Hafens 400 Jahre zuvor. During that visit he was particularly keen to hear about the Town’s wartime history and experience together with its modern role as a major international travel hub.

We send our condolences and our thoughts are with Her Majesty and the Royal Family as we mourn his loss.

The Town Council is acting in accordance with official advice concerning tributes from members of the public which is attached and explained below.
