Sturgeon County extends condolences on passing of HRH Prince Philip
Sturgeon County Mayor Alanna Hnatiw extends condolences on behalf of Council, Administration, and the community on the passing of passing of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on April 9, 2021.
"We were saddened to learn of the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip and offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family as they mourn the loss of a husband, a father, grandfather, and a great grandfather.
Prince Philip spent his life in the service to the Crown, representing the United Kingdom across the Commonwealth, including Canada. A decorated naval officer, Prince Philip served as an honorary general of Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Air Force, as well as an honorary admiral of the Royal Canadian Navy. In 2013, he was named the first-ever Extraordinary Companion of the Order of Canada by the Governor General.
A patron to more than forty organizations in Canada, we acknowledge and appreciate Prince Philips’s contributions, commitment, and service to important issues such as wildlife conservation, volunteerism, and the military, all of which have special meaning for us in Sturgeon County.”
The County's flags will remain at half-mast as a sign of respect and mourning for the passing of Prince Philip.
The Government of Alberta has published a Memorial page and virtual Condolences Book as a way for people to share messages of sympathy and condolences with the Royal Family.
