The Senedd is being recalled on Monday 12 April, at 11:00 to pay tribute to the life and service of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

Flags are being flown at half-mast across all of the Senedd’s estate, and an online book of condolence will be opened for those who wish to pay their respects.

The Llywydd, Elin Jones MS, said;

“The Prince gave many years of public service. This included active military service during the Second World War and the creation of the Duke of Edinburgh Award which has given hundreds of thousands of young people in Wales and beyond vital experiences and opportunities.”

“The Senedd sends its condolences.”
