Prince Philip makes his last trip followed by Charles, William and Harry

Prince Philip began his final trip on Saturday on a specially modified Land Rover hearse, followed on foot by a procession of senior royals including Prince Charles and Princes William and Harry. Queen Elizabeth followed the procession into Bentley State as the casket, carried on the bespoke Defender TD 130 in military green, made its way to Philip’s funeral at St George’s Chapel.

Charles and Princess Anne followed the casket on foot, followed by their brothers Edward and Andrew, and the two sons of Charles William and Harry – recalling memories of Diana’s funeral in 1997 as they walked like grieving boys behind their mother’s coffin.

Philip’s naval cap and sword rested on the coffin which was covered with the personal standard of the Duke of Edinburgh with the Danish coat of arms, Greek cross, Edinburgh Castle and the Mountbatten family stripes.

The fanfare of the Genadier guards led the procession, followed by the military leaders. The casket will pause for the national minute of silence at 2:00 p.m. GMT. A pistol fired from the eastern lawn will signify the beginning and the end.
