Dear IFN member,
The death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh – a statement
Following the sad news about the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the Co-Chairs have issued, on behalf of the Board, the following statement:
On behalf of the Board of the Inter Faith Network for the UK, we express our great sadness at the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and extend our deepest sympathies to Her Majesty The Queen and to the Royal Family.
The tributes from those of many faiths that are today being shared are a testimony to the wide appreciation among the UK’s faith communities of his life of service and the significance of faith within that.
Among Prince Philip’s many achievements through the years has been the consistent encouragement of inter faith dialogue – both through the conversations and conferences at St George’s House Windsor and through foresighted initiatives focusing on issues such as faith and international business ethics and religion and the environment.
We express our great gratitude for the significant contribution of Prince Philip to the development of inter faith understanding and cooperation for the common good: one that is of ever greater importance in our increasingly diverse society and interconnected world.
The Rt Revd Jonathan Clark and Narendra Waghela, Co-Chairs, Inter Faith Network for the UK
