In Memory of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
The cherry tree planted by Prince Philip on his first visit to Canongate Kirk in June 1953, blossoming again in time for HM The Queen’s 95th birthday on 21st April 2021.
The Kirk Session and congregation of Canongate Kirk, the Kirk of Holyroodhouse, mourn the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh on 9th April 2021 and give thanks for his long life of service and duty. We remember with particular pride Prince Philip’s many visits to Canongate Kirk over the years.
