Prince Phillip…The Duke of Edinburgh 1921 – 2021…

Today is the day when His Royal Highness…Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh will be laid to rest …The service will be held in St. Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle where Prince Philip will be interred at the Royal Vault.

The Duke of Edinburgh was closely involved in the planning of his own funeral, As a result, it will
involve a number of unique touches which reflect his life and work.
His Royal Highness’s coffin will be carried by both the Grenadier Guards and the Royal Marines.
The Duke’s two beloved fell ponies…Balmoral Nevis and Notlaw Storm will pull the carriage
which was designed by the Duke himself.

A sad day for the Queen and the Royal Family...a day where she will with her customary grace and dignity sit alone with her thoughts…during the service…

You are greatly loved ma’am for your service to our country and now although you will have the support of your loving family you will not have “your strength and stay”

We all mourn with you, ma’am as his Royal Highness, Prince Phillip, The Duke Of Edinburgh is laid to rest…BUT… what a legacy he leaves…Loved and admired for his unceasing service to his Queen and the many charities he supported…Your memory will live on…R.I.P …Your Royal Highness, Prince Philip…The Duke of Edinburgh.

    I have noted Prince Philip, always by the side of the Queen, steady in the ship of state. Though he was never a monarch, he functioned well as patriarch of the family. I believe his passing will affect the Queen immensely. Thanks for posting this, Carol!

      I think it will, Marian…I have just watched the funeral and it broke my heart to see the Queen sitting alone she looked so sad and frail to me…losing her husband of so many years and having to attend his funeral with the eyes of the world on her…so very sad x

      He was, Jim and thank you…an outspoken man at times but a man who supported his wife and did so much for her and Britain and the Commonwealth he was greatly respected around the world x

    I do have a lot of love and respect for the royals. I think they make Britain that little bit different and not only do they attract tourists, they maintain years of tradition. Their sense of duty and hard work for charity I admire enormously.
