Prince Philip’s coffin will be carried on his personalised Land Rover…
According to the official royal website, the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin will emerge from the State Entrance of Windsor Castle into the Quadrangle, followed by the members of the Royal Family who will be walking in the procession. All those in the Quadrangle will give the coffin a Royal Salute before the coffin is placed onto the Land Rover.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Funeral will be a “Ceremonial Royal Funeral”, the same as that of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. It will not be a “State Funeral” – something that is generally reserved for Monarchs.
The Dean of Windsor will conduct the Funeral Service and the Archbishop of Canterbury will pronounce the Blessing.
Due to the current public health guidelines, some elements of the Funeral plan have been modified, although the day will still be very much in line with His Royal Highness’s wishes.
The Funeral will be broadcast live on TV and radio to allow people around the world to take part in mourning The Duke.
