Funeral for Britain’s Prince Philip to be in St George’s Chapel

The funeral service for Prince Philip, the husband of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, will be held on April 17 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor castle, Buckingham Palace said on Saturday (April 10).

The service for Philip, who died aged 99 on Friday (April 9), will be preceded by a national minute’s silence. There will be no public access nor public procession beforehand.

The number of mourners will be limited to 30, with Buckingham Palace stressing that the service will be held in line with COVID-19 restrictions, meaning members of the royal family including the queen would be expected to wear a mask.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman confirmed that Prince Harry, who has moved to Los Angeles after giving up royal duties, was planning to attend the funeral, but his pregnant wife Meghan had been advised not to travel by her physician.

St. George’s Chapel is the same church where Prince Harry and Meghan were married in 2018.
