HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Message from the Moderator

HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

It is with great sadness that we learn about the sad death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Palace said in a statement: "It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh."

The congregations of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church of Ireland join together at this very sad time in prayer and reflection and send our deepest sympathies to HM The Queen and the Royal Family.


I am deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip. He was a wonderful Consort and husband to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, and loving father and grandfather to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Amongst his many achievements is the Duke of Edinburgh Award, which is a great incentive to many young people and has worked closely with Gaisce – The Irish President's Award. Participation in both projects have helped young people progress beyond their own expectations of themselves.
As Moderator I wish to express our deepest condolence to Her Majesty and The Royal Family on behalf of The Non Subscribing Presbyterian Church of Ireland.
Rt Rev Christopher Hudson MBE
