The United Kingdom meets a minute of silence in memory of Prince Philip

The United Kingdom observed a minute of silence in memory of Prince Philip at 3pm this Saturday at the start of his funeral at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the royal home west of London.

According to France-Presse, the moment of homage to Isabel II’s husband was marked when her coffin was carried on the steps leading to the church, where she would be buried in the royal coffin.

The moment of silence passed when the royal family gathered for the funeral of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, who had supported the crown for more than seven decades.

The ceremony, limited to 30 people by the Govt-19 epidemic, began just before 3pm at Windsor Castle grounds west of London.

A few days before her 95th birthday, the Queen of England bids farewell to those who have had her “strength” and “support” in her own words since she was crowned in 1952.

Known for his outspokenness and humor, the prince has achieved a record longevity in the country’s history: he will have turned 100 on June 10th.
