The Queen and members of the royal family bid an emotional goodbye to the Duke of Edinburgh at his funeral at St George’s Chapel in Windsor earlier today, April 17, 2021.

Although preparations for Prince Philip’s funeral were altered due to COVID-19 constraints, Buckingham Palace stated that the formal elements of the day and service remained consistent with the Duke’s wishes.

All of Philip’s children and grandchildren, along with their parents, attended the ceremony, as did the children of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret, and three of Philip’s German relatives: Bernhard, Hereditary Prince of Baden, Prince Donatus, Landgrave of Hesse, and Prince Philipp of Hohenlohe-Langenburg.

A close friend of Philip’s, Countess Mountbatten of Burma, Penelope “Penny” Knatchbull, who was formerly identified as Lady Romsey and later Lady Brabourne and was the duke’s carriage driving companion, was also invited.

The royal family did not wear military uniforms; the men wore morning coats with their badges, while the women wore day clothes.
