To mark the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on 9th April 2021, there will be a national one minute silence at 15:00 on Saturday 17th April. To pay our respects to His Royal Highness, this silence will be observed in all UK government buildings, and therefore the Climate Change Workshop due to be held on Saturday will be postponed to a later date.

Secretary of State for Wales Simon Hart said, "He was an environmentalist, and a champion of the natural world long before it was fashionable."

Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International, said,

"Today we mourn the loss of a lifelong advocate for the environment.

Engaged with WWF since its foundation, the Duke of Edinburgh also extended his patronage to various other environmental causes and organisations.

“His Royal Highness believed we must safeguard the planet and its resources for future generations, and dedicated his life, and position,

to inspire individuals and world leaders to protect nature and wildlife."
