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.
When I informed my 103 year old mother that the duke had sadly passed away her reply to me was " Oh no! He was such a dear man" and that was it in a nutshell. A life so well lived and such an example of how to conduct oneself without ever losing ones identity!
R.I.P your royal highness.
Just to say that having worked for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award for fourteen years and been privileged to be an honorary official at Royal Windsor Hore Show for six years, the hugely positive and encouraging influence of HRH is to be found everywhere.
His ability to engage with young people was just outstanding and inspirational. To see HRH around and about at RWHS was again inspirational whether driving or supporting his family.
We will all miss him but remember his inspiration for always.
In remembrance with the greatest admiration and respect. Your Royal Highness will not be forgotten
We owe you such a huge debt of gratitude for your inspirational contribution to the Equestrian Society.
Thank you for all you have done Sir, you will never be forgotten a true Royal to Queen and Country.
His Royal Highness was such an inspiration to the equestrian world. When visiting Royal Windsor Horse Show, I would often see him down at the carriage driving arena where he seemed to mingle very happily with all of the other competitors. It looked like he was always ready for a joke but could often be seen in intense conversation on some technical point.
I enjoyed seeing him in the main arena at the show – he would present the prizes for the Pony Club games, the smiles on the children’s faces when they received a rosette from him were a joy to see. It’s such a shame that he won’t be seen any more but he certainly will be remembered.
