The funeral of The Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh

The ceremonial royal funeral of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh will take place at Windsor Castle at 3pm on Saturday 17 April.

While we appreciate that people may wish to pay their respects, the funeral will be held in private, within Windsor Castle.

With current COVID-19 guidance it has been requested that people do not gather outside the castle.

The funeral will be televised and it is recommended that people pay their respects, safely and privately in their own homes.

A national minute silence will be held at the beginning of the funeral service at 3pm.

You can find out more about the funeral on the Royal Household website.

You can also leave a personal message of condolence on the Royal Household website.
