Hartlepool was paying tribute to Prince Philip after today’s news that he passed away aged 99.
The Duke of Edinburgh was a hugely popular figure in the area and we look back on the times he brought smiles to the people of Hartlepool and East Durham on his Royal visits.
He was a regular visitor to places such as the Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience and to Easington Colliery. He will be fondly remembered for his time as patron of the HMS Trincomalee Trust.
