Buckingham Palace announced The Duke of Edinburgh’s ceremonial funeral will take place on Saturday 17th April at 3pm in St George’s Chapel.

Military involvement will include a party of Grenadier Guards to carry the coffin from the private chapel in Windsor Castle to the specially-designed Land Rover, and a group of Royal Marines will carry the coffin into St George’s Chapel.

The modified Land Rover Defender that will be used to transport the coffin of Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, at his funeral. Made in Solihull in 2003, the Duke oversaw the modifications throughout the intervening years, requesting a repaint in military green and designing the open top rear and special “stops” to secure his coffin in place.
