The funeral for Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at age 99, is being held on Saturday at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle. A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said last week the funeral "very much reflects the Duke's wishes." 

"Whilst this is a time of sadness and mourning, the coming days will be an opportunity to celebrate a remarkable life," the Buckingham Palace spokesperson said.   

Philip, who held the title of Duke of Edinburgh, was married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years, the longest-serving consort in British history. He will be interred in the Royal Vault at St. George's Chapel.

Philip's coffin was placed in a modified Land Rover — which Philip helped design — and moved from Windsor Castle to St. George's Chapel on Saturday. A funeral procession was held and people across Britain observed a moment of silence in Philip's honor.

A limited number of people are attending the funeral, as per Britain's COVID-19 restrictions. The funeral's guest list is limited to Queen Elizabeth and Philip's four children, eight grandchildren, their spouses, the late Princess Margaret's children and several members of Philip's Greek and German family. 

Queen Elizabeth and Philip's grandson, Prince Harry, arrived in the U.K. on Sunday. His wife Meghan, who is pregnant with the couple's second child, is not attending due to medical advice stating she should avoid travel.

Harry, who is isolating in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions at Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor, issued a statement lauding his late grandfather as "a man of service, honour and great humour," whom he said was, to him, first and foremost, "grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right 'til the end."

"He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm — and also because you never knew what he might say next," said Harry, adding: "Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts."
