It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning, April 9, at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.

Further announcements will be made in due course. Visit to read the announcement in full.

Here at Bingham Town Council, our thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen, the Royal Family and everyone who knew His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, at this incredibly sad time.

The Reverend Jon Wright for St Mary and All Saints has sent the following link to the Church of England’s Book of Remembrance:

An online national Book of Condolence has been launched at

A book of remembrance has been opened by the Mayor and will be available to sign in the foyer of the Old Court House, Monday to Friday between the hours of 09:30 am and 12 noon from Monday 12 April 2021.

Following advice from the Royal household and Cabinet Office there is a request for people not to gather or lay flowers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Royal Family ask that members of the public consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral tributes. See
