The day after Prince Philip's death, the Queen's daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex tearfully told people gathered outside Windsor Castle that "the Queen has been wonderful".

When and where is the ceremony?

Ahead of the ceremony, the duke's coffin - which will be draped with his personal flag, and will have his sword, naval cap and a wreath of flowers laid on top - will be taken to the chapel from Windsor Castle in a procession led by the Band of the Grenadier Guards.

An employee from the local branch of Waterstones tweeted: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we'll be opening a little late today!"

Only Queen Elizabeth and members of Prince Philip's family have been invited to attend - leaving notable names like Prime Minister Boris Johnson off the guest list.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry's wife, will not be attending after she was not cleared by her physician to travel from California to the funeral.
