Statement by The High Sheriff of Derbyshire
Louise Potter DL
On behalf of the county of Derbyshire, the organisations of law and order,
the police, emergency services and the judiciary, I send our condolences to
her Majesty the Queen and her family.
The Duke of Edinburgh lived a life of public service and will be remembered for his devoted service to Her Majesty The Queen, the country and the Commonwealth.
The Duke of Edinburgh Awards transformed the lives of many young people in the county and was a wonderful initiative and the legacy he leaves is enormous.
I am sure the sadness is shared by all the people of Derbyshire. Prince
Philip’s wish was not for flowers but charity donations to help young
people who have suffered in the pandemic
