Chair’s letter to HM The Queen
It is with great sadness that I learnt of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
On behalf of Carmarthenshire County Council, I would ask you to convey to Her Majesty and her family our deepest sympathy at this very sad time.
Carmarthenshire has fond memories of Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee Tour of Wales in 2002 accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh when thousands of school children from across the County lined the route from Burry Port Harbour to North Dock in Llanelli, together with the Duke’s visit to Bancyfelin in 2010.
Chair of Council, Cllr Ieuan Davies
