Funeral details

The funeral began with a National Minute’s Silence in the United Kingdom, preceded by a ceremonial procession inside the grounds of Windsor Castle. 

The simplistic funeral, in line with The Duke of Edinburgh's personal wishes, aimed to recognise and celebrate The Duke’s 99 years of life and his more than 70 years of service to The Queen, the UK and the Commonwealth. 

The Ceremonial Royal Funeral, as was held for The Queen Mother, marked the occasion. State Funerals are generally reserved for Monarchs.
