 Prince Philips Was Closely Involved in the Planing of his Own Funeral,  Royel Family

The Duke of Edinburgh was closely involved in the planning of his own Funeral. As a result, it will involve a number of unique touches which reflect his life and work.





Many of the moments choreographed by The Duke demonstrate his lifelong commitment to the Armed Forces.His Royal Highness’s coffin will be carried by both the Grenadier Guards and the Royal Marines during tomorrow’s ceremony.


The Duke’s association with the Royal Marines lasted for his entire Royal working life. He was made Captain-General in 1953, and his final official engagement ahead of his retirement was a Royal Marines parade at Buckingham Palace.
