The school community are saddened to learn of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Alongside Her Majesty The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh took an enormous interest in the life of St George’s School. Our Choristers and pupils have very fond memories of seeing him in a range of capacities, whether it be in St George’s Chapel or carriage driving in Home Park Private.
The Duke of Edinburgh visited the school on a number of occasions. Upon learning of our flourishing astronomy club, he kindly donated a telescope to the school which is used by our pupils. We feel privileged to be part of The College of St George, and have strong links with Windsor Castle.
The many tributes that have been given over the last week provide a powerful insight into his extraordinary contribution to the Nation and Commonwealth. He was admired and looked up to by many around the world, not least the young people who benefited from The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. His legacy is far reaching, and on behalf of all those connected with St George’s School, our thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen and members of The Royal Family.
