"Newport City Council is saddened by the news of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh following many years of loyal service to the country.
"As a mark of respect, the flags at the Civic Centre are flying at half-mast. Council meetings will begin with a minute of silence in the coming days.
"In normal circumstances, books of condolence would be available for the public to sign in council buildings. However, we are establishing an online book of condolence and further details will be announced shortly.
"We extend the sympathy of the council, the city and our residents to the Duke's family at this time."
Councillor Tom Suller, Mayor of the City of Newport
