Britain’s Prince William and his brother Prince Harry will not be present at the funeral of their father, Prince Philip. Both will be present at the event on Saturday (today) but at different places. They will not go along but back and forth. This information related to the funeral ceremony was given by the royal palace Buckingham Palace. It may be recalled that Prince Harry had relinquished his royal status last year. Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, died on April 9 at the age of 99.
The coffin on the specially designed land rover at his traditional funeral on Saturday will have the mortal remains of Prince Philip. On the final visit, Prince William, the eldest son of Prince Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, will walk close to the mortal remains. Prince William will be accompanied by Peter Phillips, son of princess Annie, daughter of the royal couple. While Prince Harry will follow both.
According to Buckingham Palace, all four children of the royal couple – Prince Charles, Princess Annie, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward – will also be present at the funeral ceremony at St George’s Chapel. All these masks will be worn and all your medals will be dressed or morning coats. A total of 30 members of the royal family will be present at the event. A song of prince Philip’s choice will also be sung by the Duke of Edinburgh. The program will be held with restrictions imposed due to the covid-19 epidemic. A limited number of people will participate in it. As a result, many dignitaries from the British Empire will also not be able to attend Prince Philip’s funeral. The program will be about 50 minutes and will be operated by the Dean of Windsor.
Prince Philip’s mortal remains to be kept in his own design land rover
The special land rover car on which Prince Philip’s mortal remains will be placed and taken for the funeral was designed by the Prince himself. The chassis of the land rover defender TD5 130 car was specially designed by Prince Philip in 16 years. The roofless vehicle was given a military green colour, which Prince Philip loved. Prince Philip is believed to have liked this colour because of his military background. Prince Philip fought World War II as a naval officer.
