The following statement was released on Friday, April 9, 2021, by Dr Ewart F Brown, Former Premier of Bermuda…

Wanda and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family on the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh.

On Prince Philip’s visit to Bermuda in 2009, we found him to be thoughtful, engaging and witty – an energetic and delightful presence for all who encountered him.

His contribution to the positive development of Bermuda’s youth through the Duke of Edinburgh Programme is one of particular note and for which we should all be appreciative.

May the Queen, the Royal Family and all who loved and knew Prince Philip find comfort and solace in the memories of his life.
