It is with great sorrow that the Mayor, Councillors and staff of Fakenham Town Council join in the nation’s mourning for His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family. We remember with gratitude Prince Philip’s dedication to our country and the Commonwealth and his unwavering and steadfast support for Her Majesty the Queen during her long reign. We in North Norfolk feel a particular closeness to the Royal Family due to the Sandringham connection. The Duke of Edinburgh was a much loved and popular member of the Royal Family and his loss is deeply felt.
