HRH Prince Philip

With the passing of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh this month, we thought we would share some images of some of the visits he made to the borough. Images are from the Bourne Hall archives.

The Mayor of Epsom & Ewell, Councillor Humphrey Reynolds sent a message of condolence to the palace on behalf of the borough.

On the eve of his funeral in Windsor, last Friday, Guildford Cathedral held a Vigil in Commemoration of His Royal Highness on behalf of the county. The Mayor attended on behalf of the borough. The service can be seen online - here

    I remember as a kid living in Ewell, Waving a flag & seeing the Royal Motorcade pass after their attendance to The Derby Meeting. Happy memories, now retired in S.E. Asia !
