Prince Philip Laid To Rest

Philip's body was transported to St George's Chapel in the castle in a Land Rover specially designed by the prince himself. 

He was followed by members of the royal family, including Princes William and Harry, who made their first public appearance together since Harry and his wife, Meghan, gave a controversial interview to American TV host Oprah Winfrey in which they discussed the difficulties of royal life. 

The kingdom honored Philip with a minute of silence observed at 3 o'clock in the UK, the beginning and end marked by a gun fired by the King's Royal Horse Artillery. 

The final shot marked the beginning of a funeral service steeped in military and Royal tradition but imbued with the personality of the duke. 

Former Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, who knew Philip well, said the 50-minute service reflected the preferences of the prince who was a man of faith but loved to be concise.
