The Government of Saint Lucia extends condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

On behalf of the Government and People of Saint Lucia, Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet extended condolences to the entire Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom.

Saint Lucia’s Governor General, His Excellency Sir Neville Cenac, has also expressed deepest condolences.

The Saint Lucia flag will be flown at half-mast today in memory of HRH Prince Philip.
Prince Philip has visited Saint Lucia on a number of occasions, most notably in 1966, Prince Philip accompanied his wife Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on a tour of the Caribbean which brought them to Saint Lucia. In 1985, Prince Philip again visited Saint Lucia and attended the official dedication ceremony of the Leon Hess Secondary School.

Saint Lucians have also benefitted from the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme which became one of The Duke’s most remarkable achievements as it empowered young people from all communities to build the skills, confidence, and resilience.
May HRH Prince Philip rest in peace.
