Rung as a mark of respect with the bells half muffled to celebrate the life, work and achievements of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh who sadly passed away yesterday at Windsor aged 99. A life of service and duty, devoted to the Queen, his wife for over 73 years and always by her side, her strength and stay. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go to Her Majesty the Queen at this time.
