Prince Philip: Land Rover to Carry Casket to the Funeral



As final farewell to Duke of Edinburgh is set for Saturday, April 17, Prince Philip’s casket will ride in a custom-made Land Rover he helped design. The husband of the Queen of England passed away last Friday, just two months before his 100th birthday.

Buckingham Palace confirmed that his funeral procession is scheduled for this coming Saturday. The palace said the Duke of Edinburgh will take one final journey in his most trusted ride. Prince Philip, reports say, was rarely seen behind the wheel of anything but a classic Land Rover which was his favourite. Her Majesty the Queen, 94, meanwhile, will only be able to invite 30 people to the ceremony – plus the clergy – at St George’s Chapel, Windsor in the United Kingdom.

There were going to be 800 mourners from across the Duke’s military units, charities and the Commonwealth. The final list, which is expected in the next few days, will likely be made up of senior members of Royal Family, DailyMail reported.
Prince Philip said that he wanted funeral with minimal fuss, but his passing was always going to be a big affair. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be there to allow as more attendance of family members as possible.

The Duchess of Sussex will remain in United States after being advised by her physician not to travel to the United Kingdom.
