Almost 100 years after he entered the world, Prince Philip’s final journey began on a spring afternoon in the English town of Windsor.
The coffin was moved from the royals’ private chapel at Windsor Castle to St. George’s Chapel in a converted green Land Rover design by Philip himself.
The funeral procession to St. George’s Chapel across the grounds of Windsor Castle appeared more like a military parade, with soldiers of various ranks and battalions taking part in the event. Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, had requested a full military procession for his memorial service, having served as a naval officer during World War II and beyond.
