A Prayer on the Death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
It is sometimes difficult to talk to children about death. Marie Curie has some information about how to talk to children about this subject. You’ll find it here.
The death of a famous person can also remind children of other people who have died, perhaps in your family. Do take time and go at the child’s pace.
