On behalf of the Commonwealth Foundation, I express my sincere condolences to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and members of the Royal family, on the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip.
‘Prince Philip leaves behind a strong legacy of service that is an inspiration to us all.’
The Duke of Edinburgh was a stalwart supporter of the Commonwealth. He understood very well that its strength lies in the 2.4 billion citizens of the Commonwealth who, together with Member States, constitute the Commonwealth as a real family and as a powerful international actor. Prince Philip leaves behind a strong legacy of service that is an inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed.
Ambassador Sudha Devi Vasudevan is Chair of the Commonwealth Foundation.
