Prince Philip passed away at age 99 on the 9th of April 2021 & his funeral was held on the 17th of April 2021.


As a Royal consort, The Duke of Edinburgh was entitled to a full state funeral at Westminster Abbey in London. But in line with the Queen's husband’s wishes for a “no fuss” send off, he instead had a Royal ceremonial funeral.
