The Provost, Councillors and Officers of Stirling Council are deeply saddened at the news of the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

As a mark of respect, flags at Stirling Council will be flown at half mast. National Online Books of Condolence have opened to allow people to pay their respects.

In line with current restrictions, the Royal Household has requested that members of the public do not leave floral tributes or gather in public spaces. The Palace has suggested that people could donate to charity instead, if they wish to do so.

Stirling Provost Christine Simpson said: “I am deeply saddened to receive the news of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh’s death. On behalf of the people of Stirling I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family at this sad time."

Lord Lieutenant of Stirling and Falkirk, Alan Simpson OBE said: “It is with very great sadness that we have all learnt of the death of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh. 

“Since marrying Princess Elizabeth in 1947, and becoming Prince Consort in 1952, Prince Philip has been a constant and unshakeable support to Her Majesty The Queen and worked tirelessly for an enormous number of organisations and charities in UK and the Commonwealth.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Her Majesty and other members of the Royal Family.”
