Statement from Mayor Brian Bowman on the Death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Released: 9:00 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – Statement from Mayor Brian Bowman on the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh:

“Today, Winnipeggers join their fellow Canadians and people across the Commonwealth in mourning the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. On behalf of our City Council and the citizens of Winnipeg, I extend our deepest sympathies to Her Majesty The Queen, and all members of the Royal Family.

Many Winnipeggers have fond memories of the Duke of Edinburgh’s warm relationship with Canadians, and, in particular, his visits to our city. He was with us both in moments of great celebration, like the opening of the Pan American Games in 1967 and Manitoba’s Centennial in 1970, and in difficult times, like the aftermath of the Flood of the Century, in 1997.

As we reflect today, we give thanks for Prince Philip’s lifetime of service: from his naval service in the Second World War, to his tireless work on behalf of the Commonwealth, to his patronage of charitable causes like the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the World Wildlife Fund. Throughout his life, his devotion to duty has always been inspiring; his deep concern for youth and the environment will surely continue to resonate far into the future.

The Duke of Edinburgh was a member of the Greatest Generation, and in so many ways his life and work exemplify its virtues. For this, for his countless good works, and for his steadfast friendship with Canadians, Winnipeggers will always remember him.”
