The Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral will be a family affair attended by close relatives, with the guest list limited to just 30 because of coronavirus restrictions.
Prince Philip’s funeral will take place at Windsor later today (17 April) and will be broadcasted live on ITV from 1.15pm with journalists Tom Bradbury and Julie Etchingham presenting.
The funeral proceedings will start at the entrance of Windsor Castle, where the coffin will begin its journey to King George VI memorial chapel.

Why is Meghan Markle staying in California?
While Harry will be there, the Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with her second child, will not.
She will remain in California after she was not given medical clearance by her doctor to travel.
Meghan is due to give birth in the summer and previously suffered a miscarriage.
Will the Prime Minister attend the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral?
The Queen had the difficult task of deciding who should attend the service in honour of her husband of 73 years.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be present to allow for as many family members as possible to be there amid the Covid-19 rules.
The 30 limit rule does not include clergy, and the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Dean of Windsor will preside over the service.
The Queen and Philip’s 10 great-grandchildren – Savannah and Isla Phillips; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis of Cambridge; Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall; Archie Mountbatten-Windsor; and August Brooksbank – are considered too young to attend the televised proceedings as all are aged 10 and under.
