The Deputy Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, Dr Will Adam, has joined with other Anglicans in paying tribute to the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, who died this morning at Windsor Castle.
In a statement, the Anglican Communion Office said that “over the course of his long life His Royal Highness had served the Commonwealth and the United Kingdom with duty and devotion.”
Dr Adam said: “On behalf of the Anglican Communion, I express sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
“During his long life of public service His Royal Highness visited a large number of the nations where Anglicans are present; and he has worshipped in Anglican churches around the world.
“His example of duty and service and of care and concern for the environment and for young people will live on. Anglicans around the world will be united in prayer entrusting His Royal Highness to God’s love and mercy and praying for The Queen, her family and all who mourn.”
