The Queen bids farewell to Prince Philip during his funeral at Windsor Castle, with Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate reuniting.
Prince Philip “incredibly loyal” and rock of the Royal Family, was laid to rest at Windsor Castle last night.
Social distant maintained very strictly there, as the queen wore a black mask, bidding her last farewell to her husband.
Hundreds gathered outside the castle on Windsor Street to pay their respects to Prince Philip, who pleaded with police to stay away because of the Cavid-19 concern, he died at the age of 99.
The voice of the privately designed Land Rover could be heard during the national minute of silence before his coffin was taken to St. George’s Chapel.
The Governor-General of Australia, David Hurley, spoke to the Queen before the funeral and expressed his condolences on the loss of many beloved and acclaimed Dukes of Edinburgh on behalf of our country.
The Queen personally laid a wreath for her husband’s coffin.
This arrangement included white lilies, small white roses, white freesia, white wax flowers, white sweet peas and Jasmine.
The flowers placed around St. George’s Chapel had white lilies and white roses.

The first stanza, Eternal Father, Strong to Save, is the music of a sailor.
The Last Post was played by the Buglers of the Royal Marines – he was the 64-year-old Captain-General with the personal approval of the unit.
Calling for weapons for those who were in the Navy during the war – these same Bugler action stations rang, which is now a thing of the past.
The funeral began at 3 pm local time in London – midnight in Australia’s eastern states. There was a national minute of silence in Britain after the 50-minute service began.
