Vale HRH The Duke of Edinburgh: Letter to all St John People

Following the sad news of the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh today, our Lord Prior Prof Mark Compton has written a letter to all St John people to highlight the role The Duke played for our Order as Consort to our Sovereign, Her Majesty The Queen, and to show respect on behalf of our worldwide Order family.

The Duke of Edinburgh has greatly contributed to our worldwide work of helping the sick and the poor. His passing is a great loss for the worldwide community, for the Commonwealth and especially for our St John family.

On behalf of St John, our Lord Prior extends our condolences to all members of the Royal Family for their sad loss. He has also written a personal letter to Her Majesty The Queen.

May His Royal Highness rest in peace and rise in glory.
