A coffin, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, was placed on a Land Rover, which he designed himself, at the start of the funeral ceremony, which began with a procession that lasted about 20 minutes from Windsor Castle to St George’s Chapel.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, appeared separately from his brother Prince William during the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Philip, separated by their cousin Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne, and Harry appeared in the back row of his brother William, as they walked behind their grandfather’s coffin as soon as he entered the church.
Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, who had shed tears for his late father when he saw the tribute the British left at Buckingham Palace this week, looked gloomy, wearing a black mask as he arrived at Windsor Castle, before the funeral ceremony began, and seemed immensely sad..
A minute of silence was observed throughout the United Kingdom, in honor of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, before his body entered St George’s Church, where the funeral service was held, to be buried there.
The soldiers carried Prince Philip’s coffin at the entrance to the church and all the attendees stood a minute of silence in respect of him, while flags were set at half in all government buildings and palaces where the queen did not live.
