Buckingham Palace has announced the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Parish of Milton expresses deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, the Royal Family and the extended members of the Royal Household.
The Prince and Queen Elizabeth have been married for 73 years and between them have seen 14 Prime Ministers in office during the Queen’s time as Monarch.
On the Royal Family website, members of the public are asked to consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral and other tributes in public spaces. An online book of condolence is also available for the public to post their personal tributes.

Cambridgeshire County Council have provided the following update.
Now that Cambridgeshire has moved to Tier 4 restrictions, it is even more important than ever to stay at home and reduce contact with people outside of your household or support bubble.
Highways Agency provided a notice of closure today affecting the slip road onto the A14 in the direction of Newmarket. Effective from Monday 23rd November, the closure is from 8pm-6am for up to 5 days.
Traffic will be diverted to join the A14 westbound carriageway and exit at Junction 32, Histon Interchange, then join the A14 eastbound carriageway back to Junction 33 and continue their journey.
Thank you to all the volunteers who braved the elements to help out with our first batch of native tree planting in the old paddock, doing a great job in planting 213 trees in total.
The Parish Council is endeavouring to identify locations suitable for the planting of additional trees, hoping to run more events in the future.
Should you have any suggestions as to locations please let the Parish Clerk know. firstname.lastname@example.org.
