Lord Provost Ian Borthwick today (Friday 9th April) led Dundee’s civic tributes to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, after His Royal Highness passed away at Windsor Castle at the age of 99.
The Lord Provost said: “I want to pay tribute to Prince Philip and send my condolences to Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family at this time.
“The Duke of Edinburgh last officially visited in 2016, accompanying The Queen on a visit to the city’s new Slessor Gardens as well as the Michelin plant and Dundee University.
“The affection felt by Dundonians towards the Queen and Duke was very much in evidence that day, with crowds gathering to greet them on the balcony of the City Chambers.”
The flag at the City Chambers has been lowered to half-mast as a mark of respect.
An online Book of Condolence is now available on the Royal website for those who wish to send a personal message of condolence: http://bit.ly/3rZF8tT
