See below for contents Letter after President Dr. Irfaan Ali sent to Her Majesty on passing HRH Prince Philip:
It is with great sadness that I heartily sympathize on behalf of the Government and the people of Guyana, and in my own name, to the Government and people of the United Kingdom following the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Prince Philip served with great honor as patriarch of the Royal Family and a remarkable public servant, providing spontaneous support through decades of unprecedented change.
Prince Philip’s military service, especially in World War II, has earned him worldwide respect. His Royal Highness’s early non-verbal advocacy for conservation and environmental protection inspired many and the absence of his voice on these vital issues will be deeply felt. His 20th century imprint is inevitable.
My hope is that the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom will be comforted by the love and support extended to them at this time.
Please accept, Your Majesty, the assurance of my highest consideration.
