We are deeply saddened by the passing of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh. On behalf of Elsenham Parish Council, we would like to express our sincere condolences to The Queen and the Royal Family at this time.  Married for 73 years, Prince Philip demonstrated extraordinary dedication and commitment to public duty and as a devoted consort to Her Majesty The Queen.

Our sorrow is shared by people across the world, as we remember with affection and gratitude a lifetime of service by His Royal Highness.

Residents are encouraged to safely pay their respects through the virtual book of condolence which will be available on the official website of The Royal Family from Saturday 10 April.

The laying of flowers is not recommended at this time and we would ask people to remember the current government guidelines in place to keep us all safe.
