Prince Philip laid to rest in royal funeral celebrating service to Queen

Apr 17, 2021 22:58 IST | By AP

Amid Covid-19 pandemic, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II led a small group of royals at the funeral of her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The funeral incorporated hymns and readings chosen by the late royal himself and focussed on the 'unwavering loyalty' of the longest-serving consort in British history to his wife.

The ceremony, which began at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle with a minute’s silence, was a religious one, as planned by the Duke – who passed away at 99 last week on Friday.

At the end of the ceremony, the Duke’s coffin was carried to his resting place in the royal vault beneath St. George’s Chapel.

The coffin was draped in his personal standard, and wreathed with flowers chosen by the Queen. His Admiral of the Fleet cap and sword lay across it.
