Renfrewshire Council

Chief Executive statement on death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh - 9 April 2021

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Renfrewshire's Provost Lorraine Cameron has expressed sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the entire Royal Family on behalf of the people of Renfrewshire and all staff at Renfrewshire Council following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson has also expressed his condolences and paid tribute to the hugely important contribution The Duke of Edinburgh has made to society. 

As a mark of respect, flags are being flown at half-mast at Renfrewshire House, Paisley, Renfrew Town Hall and Houstoun Square, Johnstone. 

The Royal Family has asked people to consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving flowers in memory of the duke, and an online book of condolence has been launched on the official royal website for those who wish to send messages.

Further details of opportunities to commemorate The Duke of Edinburgh will be shared in the coming days.

Sandra Black, Renfrewshire Council Chief Executive.
