The funeral for Prince Philip, who died last week at 99, was held on Saturday at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Prince Philip has been interred in the Royal Vault at the chapel, alongside the remains of 24 other royals.
The Dean of Windsor gave a commendation as Philip’s coffin was lowered, saying “Go forth upon thy journey from this world, O Christian soul.”
Philip, who held the title of Duke of Edinburgh, was married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years, the longest-serving consort in British history. His coffin was placed in a modified Land Rover — which Philip helped design — ahead of his funeral service and moved to St. George’s Chapel on Saturday. A funeral procession was held and people across Britain observed a moment of silence in Philip’s honor.
A limited number of people attended the funeral, as per Britain’s COVID-19 restrictions. The guest list was limited to Queen Elizabeth and Philip’s four children, eight grandchildren, their spouses, the late Princess Margaret’s children and several members of Philip’s Greek and German family.
The funeral brought the Royal Family together in public for the first time in many months, with Prince Harry traveling from Los Angeles to attend. His wife, Meghan, watched from home. She is pregnant with the couple’s second child and was advised by doctors not to travel.
