The funeral of Prince Philip, the husband of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, will be held on April 17 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace said today.
The televised ceremony in Windsor will have no public element due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus. Prior to the start of the funeral, Prince Philip will be honored with a minute of national silence.
Royal officials said the funeral would be attended by the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh’s grandson, Prince Harry, but his pregnant wife Meghan was advised not to travel to the United States for medical reasons.
