Cymmrodorion pay tribute to its Vice-President, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
The Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion mourns the death of its Vice-President, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Professor Prys Morgan, President of the Cymmrodorion, said:
“On behalf of the Society, I would like to express my deep sadness over the passing of our Vice-President, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and offer my sincerest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family.
“Like many other Welsh organisations he generously supported, Prince Philip was a distinguished champion of the Cymmrodorion’s work in promoting the contribution of Wales in contemporary life, and the Society was particularly proud to have received its Royal Charter in 1951.”
“Prince Philip will be remembered in Wales and around the world for his devotion to public service and as a committed supporter of good causes. His spirit and immense contribution to public life will be sorely missed.”
