Books of condolences for His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh


The passing of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh

We join the nation in mourning the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

The flags on public buildings around the county have been lowered to half-mast.

An online book of condolence will be available on Buckingham Palace’s website.

Residents who do not have online access can send a message of condolence to the Chairman’s Office, Room 102, West Sussex County Council, County Hall, Chichester PO19 1RQ.

Because of the current COVID-19 guidance and restrictions, people are urged to please avoid gathering in public places: for example, rather than laying flowers in a public area, they may wish to display a floral tribute at home.
