HRH Prince Philip finally laid to rest during scaled back funeral


The funeral of HRH Prince Philip has taken place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor this afternoon, following His death earlier this month on April 9.

In a much scaled back ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 30 members of the immediate Royal Family and mourners were permitted to attend the service, a service that was planned in the most part by the Duke of Edinburgh himself.

Making it’s way from Windsor, the coffin of Prince Philip – carried on the back of a Land Rover he designed himself for this very occasion – it made the short distance to St George’s Chapel.

Prince Philips children Prince Charles, Andrew & Edward and Princess Anne followed the corsage alongside Grandsons Willism the Duke of Cambridge and Harry the Duke of Sussex joined by their cousin Peter Phillips.

Following a minute of national silence, the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffins was taken inside the Chapel joined by the members of the Royal Family and mourners limited to just 30 as a result of COVID-19 restriction, where the funeral service was taken by The Dean of Windsor joined by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The coffin of Prince Philip will now rest in the Royal Vault at St George’s Chapel, where it will remain until Queen Elizabeth II passes, at which point both the Queen and Prince Philip will be buried in the memorial chapel together.
