Prince Philip funeral updates: Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin moved to Windsor Castle as Prince Harry and William to reunite


THE Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin was moved to Windsor Castle today ahead of his funeral service this afternoon.

The coffin was moved at 11am by a bearer party from the Queen’s Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards to the royal residence’s inner hall.

Prince Philip had a close association with the regiment serving as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards for 42 years.

The Duke’s association with the Royal Navy and love of the sea will be a focus of the Windsor Castle ceremony – but in line with his wishes there will be no sermon.

More than 730 members of the armed forces are taking part in the event, but there is a limit of 30 mourners at St George’s Chapel, under Covid rules.

The ceremonial royal funeral will be broadcast on BBC One, with coverage beginning at 12:30 BST.

The service itself will start after a national minute’s silence at 3pm.
