Commenting on the news that HRH Prince Philip has died at the age of 99, Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne said:
“I was saddened to hear today about the passing of Prince Philip. He led an extraordinary life of public service, both in our armed forces and – for over seven decades – as a member of the Royal Family.
“Along with the Queen, Prince Philip has been a constant throughout our lives and we thank him for his many years of dedicated service to this nation and to the wider Commonwealth.
“People across the country will rightly mourn this sad loss, but my thoughts are especially with the Queen and the Royal Family, who have lost an important and loved member of their family.”
