The United Kingdom, and the rest of the world, have remembered Prince Phillip in a moving ceremony at St George’s Chapel, London.

Prince Phillip, officially known as the Duke of Edinburgh, died aged 99 on April 9.

In a simple, Covid restricted ceremony, the Queen Elizabeth and 29 members of the royal family took part in the service.

The funeral celebrated his seven decades of service to his wife and the United Kingdom.

One of the most moving parts of the ceremony was when Queen Elizabeth stood alone, head bowed as her husband of 73 years was lowered into the Royal Vault.

Prince Harry was also in attendance as he had flown back from the United States. It was the first time he and his brother have spoken in public for some time.

In 1997, the queen described Philip as her “strength and stay” over their decades of marriage. Now 94, she has reigned for 69 years.
