Prince philip, The Duke of Edinburgh and late husband of Queen elizabeth ii, is resting in what should be an emotional farewell, with potential for tension in the Royal Family … and TMZ is broadcasting it live.
The ceremony took place against the backdrop of a bright, early Saturday morning across the pond from Windsor Castle … where Philip’s life, service and loyalty to the Queen is celebrated. As expected, Harry and William were separated as they entered the church.
QE2’s husband for 73 years rests at rest in the castle’s private chapel – and today his coffin will be transported to St George’s Chapel, where he will rest in the royal vault.
The coffin will be flanked by 9 members of the royal family, including his grandsons Prince william and Prince harry.
Of course, all eyes will be on Harry to see how he interacts with his brother, his father, prince charles, and others because this is their first public interaction since Harry and Meghan markleOprah interview … where they accused members of the royal family of racism.
While Harry flew in from California for the ceremony, Meghan did not get medical clearance to travel as she is pregnant with their second child.
As for Prince Philip, his coffin will be loaded in the back of a Land Rover that he himself customized in a hearse, and the procession will pass through roads lined with soldiers saluting his naval service.
Only 30 family members will enter St. George’s Chapel – due to COVID restrictions – for approximately 50-minute service. The Duke’s medals, awards and decorations will be displayed on the altar as his family and royal subjects bid him a final farewell.
