Prince Philip, husband of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, will be laid to rest on Saturday.

The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral service, which will take place at 3pm (4pm SA time) at St George's Chapel, will be proceeded by a ceremonial procession. The entire event will be held within the grounds of Windsor Castle in the UK.

In line with British Covid-19 regulations, only 30 people will attend the service. This includes the queen, the couple's four children — Princess Anne and princes Charles, Andrew and Edward — and their eight grandchildren including princes William and Harry. (See the list of attendees here.)
