His Royal Highness Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh
A prayer from the Church of England, in memory and celebration of the life of Prince Philip:

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.

First Sunday in the month:
