As Partner of The Duke of Edinburgh International Award I was very sad to hear the news that the founder, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh had died on 9 April 2021.
For more than sixty years HRH The Duke of Edinburgh dedicated immeasurable time and energy into making The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award what it is today. Because of his vision, leadership and dedication, the Award has transformed the lives of millions of young people across more than 130 countries and territories. His legacy will continue to reach countless more young people to the benefit of communities around the world.
He will be hugely missed, but his legacy will continue.
