Prince Philip Laid To Rest At St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle [Photos]

3 months ago 34

Queen Elizabeth II on Saturday laid to rest her late husband, Prince Philip, in a royal funeral like no other, curtailed by coronavirus restrictions but reflecting his long life of military and public service.

Philip, who died on April 9 aged 99, was interred in the Royal Vault at St George’s Chapel, at Windsor Castle, west of London, after a 50-minute service attended by just 30 guests but watched by millions on television.

The Duke was married to Queen Elizabeth II for more than 70 years and became the longest-serving consort in British history – he was due to turn 100 in two months’ time, on 10 June.

Prince Philip had returned to Windsor Castle on 16 March after spending nearly a month in hospital – his longest ever stay.
