Pride of England Rose

In memory of HRH Prince Philip

We here at Bumbles were saddened to hear of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. A man of great purpose and conviction, Prince Philip contributed much to his country through his tireless devotion to the many patronages and charities he supported. This included the formation of the of Duke of Edinburgh scheme, in which over 4 million young people achieved distinction, as well as his tireless support to his wife, Her Majesty the Queen, celebrating 73 years of marriage last year.
A talented naval officer, had he not married the reigning monarch he was tipped to become the First Sea Lord, but in an inspiration to us all his duty to the Queen came foremost, as in his own words “his job first, second and last was never to let her down”.
Her Majesty the Queen gave, we feel, the greatest tribute to him in her speech celebrating their Golden wedding anniversary in 1997:  “But he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.”
We here at Bumbles would like to dedicate Rose “Pride of England” to His Highness’s lasting memory.
