Andy Street, the Mayor of the West Midlands, said:
“I am incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. For more than seven decades he has been the rock by our Queen’s side, as well as being an incredible public servant.
“I know many people across the West Midlands will have personal memories of the Prince from his visits, as well as from all his work to support so many charities and organisations. My thoughts are with the Royal Family at this very sad time.”
Deborah Cadman OBE, chief executive of the West Midlands Combined Authority said:
“Our thoughts are, of course, with the Queen and members of the Royal Family at this very sad time for them. But the news is sad for us all and the passing of Prince Philip will be mourned across the region.
“Many of us will have happy memories of the times we’ve welcomed him to the West Midlands during his long life of exemplary public service.”
