Queen Elizabeth stands alone while Prince Phillip rests


Windsor, England — Queen Elizabeth and her family paid the final tribute to Prince Phillip at a funeral on Saturday.

The Queen was placed alone at a ceremony at the St. George’s Chapel, with children, grandchildren, and a group of selected royal mourners separated by the rules of COVID-19.

“Today I remember Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, thanking you for his decisive faith and loyalty, high duty and integrity,” Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said in prayer. I mentioned in.

Philip, who married Elizabeth in 1947, died on April 9 at the age of 99. The 1997 Queen described Philip as the “strength and stay” of a decades-old marriage.

Philip’s naval hat and sword were placed on the casket, which was covered by the personal standards of the Duke of Edinburgh, featuring the Danish coat of arms, the Greek cross, Edinburgh Castle, and the striped pattern of the Mount Battenberg family. It was.

White roses, lilies and jasmine garlands from the 94-year-old queen also decorated the casket.

Philip’s casket was taken to the chapel on a military green bespoke Land Rover Defender TD130 when the Minute Gun was fired eight times.

Due to continued coronavirus regulation in the UK, there were only 30 mourners in the chapel.

Philip is a WWII decorated British Navy veteran, his funeral was meticulously planned by the prince himself, and military personnel played an important role, giving him a strong military sense. I had it.
