Prince Philip's coffin was moved from the castle's quadrangle, down Chapel Hill and into Horseshoe Cloister in a purpose-built Land Rover, which he helped design.

The duke's children, Princess Anne, Prince Charles, Prince Edward, and Prince Andrew, walked behind the coffin, followed by Prince Harry, Peter Phillips, Prince William, Vice Admiral Tim Lawrence, and the Earl of Snowdon.

Buckingham Palace has said that while the funeral has been modified to take public health guidelines into account, the ceremonial aspect of the service is "in line with the Duke's wishes and will reflect His Royal Highness's personal and military affiliations."

During the service, a small choir of four singers will perform music selected by Prince Philip. They will be located at a distance from the congregation to comply with public health guidelines. This is a developing story. Please check back for more updates.
