Government House, Bermuda

The public is advised that at 12 noon, today on the grounds of Government House, there will be a rifle salute performed by members of the Royal Bermuda Regiment (RBR) to commemorate the life of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Due to COVID restrictions, the event is not open to the public.

But coverage and images from the salute will be shared with the public following the commemoration.
Gun salutes marking the death of the Duke of Edinburgh were fired across the UK, in Gibraltar and at sea today, firing 41 rounds at one round every minute from midday in cities including London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast, as well as Gibraltar and from Royal Navy warships.

Gun salutes have been fired to mark significant national events, including the Queen’s Coronation and the deaths of Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill, since as early as at least the 18th century.

Members of the public were encouraged to observe the gun salutes from home.

“We join the global chorus of tributes offered to the Queen and the entire Royal Family to extend our sincere condolences on the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh,” he said.
“He was highly respected for his unbending sense of duty, his lifelong service to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and for his steadfast support to his wife, Queen Elizabeth II.”
