His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
(10 June 1921 - 9 April 2021)
On the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, and on behalf of the people of Middlesbrough, I would like to offer condolences to the Royal Family at this sad time.
As a mark of respect, our flags will be flown at half-mast and we will be lighting our buildings in purple from now until His Royal Highness' funeral.
We will be sending a message of condolence to Her Majesty and the wider Royal Family on behalf of the people of Middlesbrough, and details of how people can pay their respects will be given in due course. A book of condolence is also available on the Royal Family website.
- Andy Preston, Middlesbrough Mayor
