A THANKSGIVING service will be held for the Duke of Edinburgh later this month.

Berkshire Lieutenancy will hold a county service for Prince Philip who died at Windsor Castle on Friday, April 9, this year.

He was the longest-serving royal consort in British history.

On Saturday, October 16, a service will celebrate the Duke’s life, his service to the monarchy and support to the Queen, and his legacy of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE). Thanks will also be given for the Duke’s support to many Berkshire institutions and charities.

It will begin at 5pm at Reading Minster of St Mary the Virgin.

Dignitaries and representatives from organisations across the county have been invited to attend.

Tickets are free, and can be booked via: whatsonreading.com

Bookings close on Friday, October 15.
