A statement from The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall following the death of The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire:

“My wife and I were deeply saddened to learn of the death of The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, whom both of us adored and admired greatly.  She was a unique personality with a wonderfully original approach to life, and a memorable turn of phrase to match that originality.  The joy, pleasure and amusement she gave to so many, particularly through her books, as well as the contribution she made to Derbyshire throughout her time at Chatsworth, will not easily be forgotten and we shall miss her so very much.”
