Prince Philip: Who will be attending the Duke of Edinburgh's Covid-restricted funeral?

Prince Philip's funeral ceremony will be one of the smallest events to mark a senior member of the British monarchy in living memory because of the Covid restrictions.

Just 30 people will be allowed in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle - something which is likely to suit the Duke of Edinburgh, who never wanted a large affair.

The public have been told not to attend Windsor on the day, or any of the other Palaces in the days leading up to the funeral, and only the Royal Family will be in attendance at St George's Chapel.

The funeral will take place on Saturday 17 April at 3pm inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.Here's who will be attending:

The Queen

The Queen once described the duke as her ‘constant strength and guide’.
