Entries to the Horse World Remembers Book of Condolence will be on display at the Royal Windsor Horse Show 2021, as a gesture of appreciation for the Duke’s incredible life and achievements.
Deepest sympathies at the loss of a great man , son , brother , husband , father , grandfather and great grandfather but above all protector of our Gracious Queen .
As a member of the Windsor Horse Show , I have spent many happy hours in the grounds of Windsor Castle and was privileged to attend for cocktails hosted by the Duke . He had a presence that was palpable and clearly a man of command . He was however gracious with his time although relatively speaking we were very unimportant people .
In competition he respected competitors but was very competitive and capable . Something that has been passed onto his grand daughters .
He will be missed . A job well done . A life well lived .
God Bless Sir. Thank you for everything you have done for us and you support to the Queen and your family.
Sending sincere condolences to Her Majesty at a time of such heartache and sorrow, and hoping in time, that their mutual love of all things equestrian brings back happy memories of time spent together. Rest in Peace your Royal Highness.
Words cannot sun up what you have done for the equestrian world. Without your enthusiasm for the sport and championing competition it would not be the equestrian world we know today. An ambassador not only for equestrianism but you also levelled the playing field which was tipped in favour of elite males competitors making the sport accessible for all. Not till recently have I truly appreciated everything you have done for this country and although I can’t ever tell you how much I appreciate it I want to thank you. RIP HRH Prince Philip, your duty is done, we will take it from here.
Thanks for all you have done to our sport horse drivning trials
Fond memories of many years at The Royal Windsor Horse Show, watching HRH The Duke of Edinburgh competing in The Four in Hand Driving Competition.
Rest in Peace.
A true hero, what an amazing contribution you made in so many walks of life....
Our condolences to the Queen and her family on the passing of Hrh Prince Philip. His enthusiasm,intelligence, kindness, charisma and dynamic energy throughout his long life was simply extraordinary. A true legend whose life had a positive impact on so many. RIP
20 years ago my pony (Humbug) and I took part in ‘The Running’ at Royal Windsor Horse Show. This meant we had to run the carriage driving score sheets from one obstacle to the next on horseback. My pony, whom I still have now, is a very cheeky one. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh drove up next to us in his Range Rover to ask if I was ok as my pony had just bucked me off. To which Humbug decided to pop his head through the window and sneeze rather dramatically all over HRH. I was desperately battling to remove my pony from the car as my horrified Mother looked on. HRH just stroked his nose and laughed, much to mine (and my Mother’s) relief!
We will never see his like again.
A man of integrity,loyalty,honour,selflessness.
With a sharp wit,and a strong sense of duty.
At the Queens side for so many years,he will be much missed .
A true gentleman .
My sincere condolences ti Her Majesty the Queen and sincerely hoping she will continue ti be strong as she always is during this very sad period of morning.
Tiú were both there for one another, Prince Philip was truly a rock and a good leader for the family and I hope his s Melo y continues to give you the strength you need.
In memory of your huge contribution to RWHS and the wider equestrian world.
Your place in our lives is irreplaceable and myself and the Lovejoy family will always remember the times we had the honour of meeting you. Rest in peace Sir
From Pony Club member 50 years ago to a Windor Horse Show volunteer, I have been inspired by the Duke of Edinburgh for half a century. He was immigrant who personified all that is best about the English. Thank you.
Well they just don’t make them like him any more, do they? A sad loss for Great Britain. God bless and save our beautiful Queen.
We will never see another like HRH The Duke of Edinburgh from his role as a consort, serving in the military, his love of carriage driving and equestrianism, the creation of the DofE scheme and so on. He didn't always get it right, but does anyone. You will be missed - a generation dying out but never forgotten,
Kindest regards from a fellow Veteran

Your devoted loving wife, HM Queen -& all your family. xxxx
Represented all that was best in UK. A generation that had values.
I am so sorry that your Majesty has lost Prince Philip and that you are going through this terrible time. I send love and prayers for you both.
Your many achievements in the equestrian world have been admired for so many years...
I took great joy in seeing you drive in Windsor Great Park and also playing polo at Cowdray.
You have I am sure been an inspiration to many.
God bless you and sweet dreams.
A man of many parts. Until I read all the recent press coverage I did not realise how many talents and interests he had. Religion, conservation, young people, sport. A really admirable man.
What an amazing and inspirational man HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was. He has left his mark on so many aspects of my life from The Prince Philip Games to completing my Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards. His legacy will stay in the world of equestrian sport for many many years to come and in the wider world for generations to come. Thankyou Prince Philip for all you have done , with love and gratitude, Theresa Morris (Treehouse Sporting Colours)
The world has lost a star member of the driving community. Royal Windsor will not be the same without you. I am grateful for your service for so many many years. I send my condolences to your family.
Thank you sir for creating the Prince Philip Cup PC games and the Duke of Edinburgh awards both of which members of our family took part in across the generations. They imparted gifts of team spirit, challenge endurance and a life long love of horses, outdoor pursuits and helping others before yourself.
You were a rare and modest man but you have left a part of your energy and determination in many .
