British Prince Philip made his last trip, today, Saturday, in a specially modified “Land Rover”, and was followed on foot by a motorcade of senior members of the royal family, including Charles, William and Harry.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, 94, followed the funeral, which took place at St. George’s Church, in her car, while the coffin was carried on a custom-designed “Defender” in military green.
The Queen of Britain left the royal entrance to “Windsor Castle”, while the royal family prepared for the funeral ceremony that preceded Prince Philip’s funeral.
The Queen, who was accompanied by her maid, placed a muzzle on her face, while she sat on her seat in a “Bentley” car. We kill her to St. George’s Church to attend the funeral of her husband, who shared her life with her for 73 years.
Elizabeth always sought to be a role model for the nation during her long reign, and thus put the muzzle as required in England under the rules designed to slow the spread of “Covid-19”.
Also under the rules, only 30 members of the royal family and close friends were allowed to attend the funeral.
Prince Charles and Princess Anne followed the coffin on foot, followed by their brothers Edward and Andrew, and sons Charles William and Harry, evoking memories of Diana’s funeral in 1997 when they walked in their infancy behind their mother’s coffin.
A minute of silence was declared across the country to mourn the departure of Prince Philip, the central figure in the British monarchy.
An informed source said that Prince Harry’s wife, Megan, watched Prince Philip’s funeral from her home in California, USA, after her doctor advised her not to travel while she was pregnant.
Harry marched in the procession behind the coffin of his grandfather Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II of Britain, with other members of the royal family, led by his father Prince Charles and his brother Prince William.
And at St George’s Chapel, where Harry and Meghan got married in 2018, the funeral became the first occasion that British Prince Harry had met his family since the couple’s resounding interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
It ends with the burial of Prince Philip of national mourning, which was announced following the death of the Queen’s husband on April 9, at the age of 100.
