The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey has commented on the decision by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh to stand down from public life stating:

“I was fortunate enough to have been in the company of HRH Prince Philip on two separate occasions and was blown away by his interesting, intriguing and amusing nature. He has been monumental in the support given to his wife, HM The Queen for over seventy years and deserves tremendous credit. I want to wish him a very happy retirement, he will be greatly missed at HM The Queen’s side.”
