The funeral of, Duke of Edinburgh, is being held on Saturday, bringing together members of the Royal Family for the first time in many months. Queen Elizabeth, his wife of 73 years, was seen in public for the first time since his death as she arrived at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, onlyto attend — and the Queen sat alone. The guest list was restricted to Philip and Elizabeth’s four children, eight grandchildren, their spouses and members of Philip’s Greek and German family.
Princess Anne and male members of the family walked in procession behind the coffin Saturday leading to the chapel. Princes William and Harry did not walk side-by-side but instead had a cousin walk between them — an order that the Queen had assigned.
The funeral reflected Philip’s devotion to his military service, with a military band playing music as his coffin and the family arrived at Windsor Castle.
People across Britain held a moment of silence before the funeral began.
Although no family members wore military uniforms, Harry, who served in Afghanistan, wore his medals. His wife, Meghan, did not attend on medical advice since she is pregnant with the couple’s second child. She will be watching at home.
