The Duke of Edinburgh will have a ceremonial funeral at St George's Chapel in Windsor on Saturday afternoon (April 17th), with only 30 guests able to attend due to coronavirus restrictions.

Prince Charles, eldest son of the Queen and Prince Philip, and first in line to the throne, and Princess Anne, the only daughter of the Queen and Philip, will lead the eight-minute long procession, during which the coffin of Prince Philip will be carried in a modified Land Rover from the castle to the chapel.

The Queen will join the funeral procession to the chapel, and follow the royal family members walking on foot in the state Bentley.

Peter's daughters are Savannah and Isla, who were two of the seven great-grandchildren of Prince Philip and the Queen to feature in the recently released family photo that commemorated Philip's role as a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

The Duchess of Cambridge will be in attendance but the Duchess of Sussex will remain in America as she is heavily pregnant, expecting her second child with Prince Harry.
