Prince Edward proud to carry on Prince Philip’s legacy
Prince Edward, who received the title Duke of Edinburgh last week, is proud to carry on Prince Philip’s legacy of promoting opportunities for young people from all walks of life to reach their full potential.
The Duke has been deeply committed to the work of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for decades.
King Charles bestowed on his younger brother Edward the title of Duke of Edinburgh on Friday, in accordance with the wishes of the late Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip.
Philip, who was the last holder of the title, had always wanted it to be inherited by Edward.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
DofE was designed to inspire young people between the ages of 14 and 24 to achieve standards of achievement and strive in a wide variety of active interests – to serve their communities, experience adventure, and grow and learn through outside the classroom.
Participation in the award has grown every year since its inception.
Currently, more than one million young people are working towards their bronze, silver or gold medals in more than 130 countries and territories.
