Officers stood with their heads bowed with car emergency lights flashing outside the Hamilton Police Station on Saturday morning in tribute to the Prince who died last Friday.

The tribute coincided with the start of the funeral at Windsor Castle.

Commissioner’s Staff Officer Calvin Smith told The Royal Gazette: “It is important to observe from a historical point of view as we are a British territory and we do represent Her Majesty, the Queen.

“With the ending of the period of national mourning and the beginning of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, we are joining with the rest of the world in one minute’s silence in his memory.

“The call went out to all British territories and former territories who have all participated in this event.

“His legacy in Bermuda is highly regarded, he has visited numerous times and many young Bermudians from all walks of life have participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and have seen the world as a result. He is highly regarded in the sailing community as well.”

Soliders of the Royal Bermuda Regiment observed a minute’s silence at Warwick Camp and other locations where soldiers were stationed around the island.

Lieutenant-Colonel Ben Beasley said: “All the staff at Warwick Camp and those at community advisory points took a minute’s silence to recognise the passing of His Royal Highness at 11am.

“He was the Queen’s husband but he was also a former military officer so he has our respect.”
