Leave your tributes to Prince Philip in News Letter book of condolence

We know that many of our readers would like to pay tribute to Prince Philip but Covid-19 restrictions mean that physical books of condolence are not permitted facilitate such tributes.

However, we are giving News Letter readers a chance to share your memories of the Duke of Edinburgh by opening a book of condolence in association with our sister title, nationalworld.com.

We are aiming to collect and print these tributes in the News Letter on Monday, April 19.

We would love to see your thoughts about the man who stood beside the Queen throughout her reign and provided her with so much support and love over 70 years of marriage.

We particularly want to hear about your memories of Prince Philip, especially if you were lucky enough to meet him on one of his many visits to Northern Ireland over the years.

The funeral of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh will be unlike any other royal funeral.

The pandemic - and his personal wishes - mean that this will be a more intimate funeral than ever before for a member of the Royal Family.

Adhering to coronavirus restrictions, only 30 mourners will be allowed inside St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday, limiting the event to the closest members of his family.

And while the funeral itself will be covered by broadcasters from around the world, there will be none of the usual pomp of a state funeral as Prince Philip chose to have a ceremonial funeral.

So it seems fitting to give people a chance to be part of the funeral by signing our book of condolence.
