Message from The Dean of Ely

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh RIP

As Patron of the Order of St. Etheldreda, the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, brings a great sadness to all of us in the Cathedral community and he will be remembered with much fondness. We are truly grateful for all he did in support of Ely Cathedral, particularly for his patronage of the Great Restoration when the Cathedral building was at crisis point, and a public appeal was launched to raise £4,000,000 to secure its future.

We were fortunate that His Royal Highness visited the Cathedral on several occasions, most recently for the centenary celebrations of the Diocese of Ely in 2009.

Ely Cathedral will be marking this sad occasion and honouring his life with services and prayers throughout the official mourning period. The Union Flag will be flying at half-mast from the West Tower and the Cathedral Flower Guild will be creating their own special floral tributes.

Further information, including an online book of condolence, is available (here). Any updated news and information about services and Cathedral opening times will be posted on our website or via the Cathedral's social media pages.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
