The Duke of Edinburgh’s Funeral will be a “Ceremonial Royal Funeral”, the same as that of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. It will not be a “State Funeral” - something that is generally reserved for Monarchs. The Dean of Windsor will conduct the Funeral Service and the Archbishop of Canterbury will pronounce the Blessing. Due to the current public health guidelines, some elements of the Funeral plan have been modified, although the day will still be very much in line with His Royal Highness’s wishes. The Funeral will be broadcast live on TV and radio to allow people around the world to take part in mourning The Duke.

All those in the Quadrangle will give the coffin a Royal Salute before the coffin is placed onto the Land Rover. The Queen will depart from the Sovereign’s Entrance in the State Bentley. The Procession will move towards St. George’s Chapel, through Engine Court, Chapel Hill Parade Ground and into Horseshoe Cloister, arriving at the West Steps. The procession route will be lined by representatives from the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the Highlanders, and 4th Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland and the Royal Air Force. Minute Guns will be fired by The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery from the East Lawn of Windsor Castle for the duration of the Procession. The Curfew Tower Bell will also toll. The members of the Royal Family who will follow on foot behind the coffin are: The Princess Royal The Prince of Wales The Earl of Wessex and Forfar The Duke of York The Duke of Sussex Mr. Peter Phillips The Duke of Cambridge Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence The Earl of Snowdon The National Anthem will play as the coffin arrives at Horseshoe Cloister, to met by representatives from the Commonwealth and a Dismounted Detachment of the Household Cavalry. The Bearer Party will carry the coffin up the West Steps of the Chapel before pausing for a National Minute Silence at 3pm. The Dean of Windsor and the Archbishop of Canterbury will then receive the coffin. As the doors to St. George’s Chapel close, the Royal Navy Piping Party will pipe the ‘Carry On’.

Lady Ogilvy The Hereditary Prince of Baden The Landgrave of Hesse The Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg The Countess Mountbatten of Burma The congregation will wear masks for the Service and Members of the Royal Family will wear Day Dress or Morning Coat with medals. During the Service, a small choir of four will sing pieces of music chosen by The Duke of Edinburgh. The choir will be located in the Nave, away from the seated congregation, and in line with public health guidelines there will be no congregational singing.

  3. Statement on behalf of Claire Ward, Clerk to the Lieutenancy of Herefordshire: “The councillors and officers of Herefordshire Council are deeply saddened at the news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. “The Duke of Edinburgh was the longest-serving royal consort in British history, and a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Thank you on behalf of Herefordshire to The Duke of Edinburgh for your devoted service to the UK and the Commonwealth. “Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.” Statement on behalf of Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant, Edward Harley OBE: “I am very sad to hear the news regarding His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. “HRH has been a pillar of strength to The Monarchy, dedicating his life to supporting Her Majesty The Queen in her duties. “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which has offered opportunities to thousands of young people, is just one of his many lasting legacies. “HRH has been a hugely positive and encouraging influence in so many fields. “My thoughts are with Her Majesty and all the members of The Royal Family at this very sad time.” Statement on behalf of Councillor Sebastian Bowen, Chairman of Herefordshire Council: “It is with great sadness that we observe the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this sad time. The flags across the county are being flown at half-mast as a sign of our greatest respect, and there will be books of remembrance located throughout Herefordshire to commemorate and celebrate fond memories of Prince Philip throughout his life. “We first welcomed The Duke of Edinburgh to Herefordshire in 1957 when he accompanied the Queen on her first visit to the county as Queen and they have both visited us on several occasions since then. The last occasion was their visit on 11 July 2012 during Her Majesty’s celebration of her Diamond Jubilee, which will be a permanent memory for the people of Herefordshire. The Duke has always been such a marvellous consort to the Queen throughout the decades, helping to make the world envious of the British monarchy, which is without equal. “The Duke of Edinburgh, when a young Naval Officer stationed on Malta was introduced to Polo by Lord Mountbatten, who was a great exponent of the game and wrote a classic manual on Polo. The Duke became a fine player with a very good handicap of four. He was a member of many winning teams. After Polo, the Duke took up Carriage Driving, very successfully. He was skilled, brave and very determined and won many Championships and represented Great Britain. He drove a team of the Queen's ponies to many successes. His enthusiastic participation greatly raised the profile of Carriage Driving. “We owe The Duke a great debt of gratitude for the way he dedicated his life to be at the Queen’s side at thousands of visits in their service of our country and the whole of the Commonwealth. The way he supported the nation’s young people mature into responsible adulthood through his innovative Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme was a marvellous inspiration for many young people. I know that The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme has changed, greatly for the better, the lives of thousands of young people and taught them to believe in themselves and to learn that serving other people is the greater glory. “He will be sorely missed, not only by the Royal family and his friends, but also by the nation as a whole.”
  4.
