Mothers' Union mourns the passing of Prince Philip
10 Apr 2021
At Mothers’ Union we share the royal family’s sorrow at the death of Prince Philip. A stalwart supporter and helpmeet for the Queen, he brought humour and insight to his public role, and kept the royal family on course through the many storms of recent years, as well as sailing through calmer waters, in keeping with his Naval background.
He exemplified Mothers’ Union’s own beliefs about the value of family life, through care for his children and grandchildren and his long marriage to the Queen. Faith is also central to the royal family, as it is to our members, as a Christian movement. Prince Philip fulfilled his faith role publicly and privately through his friendships with Church of England clerics.
He will be a great loss to the country, and Mothers’ Union wholeheartedly joins in the tributes.
