Passing of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh

April 11, 2021

Commonwealth Games Scotland expresses our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and The Royal Family on the passing of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

We pay tribute to his long service to the Commonwealth and in particular young people, through his Duke of Edinburgh Awards programme.  He had a long association shaping the Commonwealth Games, serving as CGF President for over 30 years. He presided over the Opening of six Commonwealth Games from 1958, including appropriately those in Edinburgh in 1970 and 1986, with the last Games he attended Glasgow 2014.  His influence will be sorely missed and we mourn his sad loss.
