“His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has long embodied dignity, loyalty and service to others. […] [He] has a keen interest in the personal development of young people and, through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards, has helped to advance the community engagement and personal achievement of young Canadians. In addition, he has long held close ties with Canada’s Armed Forces, which have recognized his service with the unique ranks of honorary admiral and general. Through his many visits to Canada, both on his own and with Her Majesty The Queen, he has shown his lasting concern for our country and for Canadians.”
