Where will Prince Philip be buried?

The College of Arms stated that Prince Philip will lie at rest in Windsor Castle before a royal ceremonial funeral at St George’s Chapel.

Prince Philip opted to not have a state funeral and there will be no lying-in- state, the College of Arms has said.

On the day of the funeral, according to The Telegraph, the original plans were that coffin will be taken to Wellington Arch, where an RAF guard of honour and band will receive it and play a royal salute.

It will then be moved onto a vehicle for the 23-mile journey to Windsor.

The College of Arms, which helps to organise state occasions, said that Prince Philip’s funeral plans were “in line with custom and with His Royal Highness’s wishes.”
