HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

Following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, we know that many of you will want to pay tribute to His Royal Highness and offer condolences to Her Majesty The Queen at this sad time.

Our priority remains to keep everyone safe and, due to the current public health guidelines and lockdown restrictions around COVID-19, we will not be providing books of condolences at our buildings.

We would like to encourage you to leave your tributes to His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh by signing the book of condolence on the website of The Royal Household.

If you are unable to access the online book of condolence, you are welcome to send your tribute (including your address and telephone number) in writing to:

Tribute to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, The Civic Office, Sessions House, County Road, Maidstone ME14 1XQ.

The Royal Household has requested that members of the public do not leave floral tributes or gather in public places to offer their respects. The palace has suggested that people could donate to charity instead, if they wish to do so.
