PCC pays tribute to His Royal Highness Prince Philip
Lorne Green, Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, today joined people around the world in paying tribute to His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
Mr Green said: “It was with great sadness that I heard the news of the death of His Royal Highness.
“Prince Philip served this country with dedication and commitment and will be remembered across the world for his loyalty and devotion to Her Majesty the Queen.
“Closer to home, the Prince was a familiar face at Sandringham and was known for his love of the estate and beautiful Norfolk countryside, choosing to retire there when he stepped back from public duties in 2017.
“Norfolk Constabulary plays a vital role in ensuring the safety of the Royal Family at Sandringham and I know that my colleagues in the constabulary take great professional pride in this responsibility.
“As a county, Norfolk enjoys a special relationship with the Royal Family through the Sandringham Estate. Whilst the loss of His Royal Highness will be met with sadness by so many, we can also know that the county we call home and the countryside and places we love have also been a place of refuge, retreat and peace for him for many years.
“My deepest condolences and sympathies are with Her Majesty the Queen and the entire Royal Family at this very sad time.”
