Dorset Chamber chief executive Ian Girling said: “The Chamber would like to express its sadness at the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh.

“It sends its sincerest condolences to the Queen and the Royal family at this time. The Duke will be remembered as a great supporter of business and enterprise.

“As well as championing UK plc on the world stage, the Duke was a patron of many business organisations with a particular interest in such areas as technology and engineering.

“But it is perhaps the Duke of Edinburgh Awards which will become his lasting legacy and for which he will be most warmly remembered.

“Through his award, the Duke inspired generations of young people to develop new skills and enterprises.  The DoE scheme also encouraged many in the business world to invest in young people and give them the skills, confidence and resilience to succeed.

“The Duke’s dedication to duty, his work ethic and commitment has been a shining example, and will live on as an inspiration to many for years to come.”
