Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain, will be laid to rest after he passed away last night (Friday) at the age of 99. Philip is expected to have a royal funeral befitting his long-standing status in the kingdom, but due to Corona virus limitations it is expected to be much smaller.



"In view of the corona plague, and in light of government decisions and guidelines for social alienation, changing the funeral arrangements for the Duke of Edinburgh will be considered by the Queen," a statement from Buckingham Palace said.

They added that they would later update the date of the funeral as well as the number of participants that would be allowed.

These days the kingdom’s funerals are limited to up to 30 people, so it is possible that attendance at the prince’s funeral will be allowed to immediate family members only.



Corona's limitations call into question Prince Harry's grandson's participation in the funeral.

If indeed Harry, who lives in California, comes to Britain, he may have to bend the laws of the kingdom a little.



Currently entering the country from the United States are required to present a negative corona test before boarding the aircraft, and in addition, are required to enter ten days of isolation.

In case another test comes out negative, the isolation may be shortened to five days.

Anyway, even if Harry arrives, it's likely to be without his pregnant wife Megan Merkel.

In memory of Philip, a barrage of 41 rounds of artillery will be held at noon at several points across the kingdom, including the London Bridge, Edinburgh Castle, as well as Gibraltar and Royal Navy ships.

The kingdom's flag at Buckingham Palace was lowered to half-mast and television broadcasts across the kingdom were stopped in favor of covering his death.



The Royal Palace and the government called on residents not to come and lay flowers outside the palace and invited them to sign their name in commemorative book in memory of the Duke of Edinburgh, through a website set up for the purpose.

In the UK, where about 127,000 victims of the corona virus have been counted so far, there are still restrictions on movement and gatherings.



For comparison - when Queen Elizabeth Mother, Queen Elizabeth's mother, passed away in 2002, thousands of people passed by her coffin, which was placed in the Westminster Palace in the Parliament building.

In Philip's case, however, his coffin would not be placed in a public place, both because of the corona's limitations and because of the prince's personal will, who in addition was not interested in a state funeral.

Until the funeral, Philip's coffin will be placed in Windsor Castle, 40 miles west of London, where he spent his last weeks with Queen Elizabeth.

His funeral will be held at St. George's Chapel, a place where royal burials have been held for centuries, as well as royal weddings, including the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Merkel.



In the governmental aspect, official visits and announcements by the administration will be delayed until after the prince's funeral.

The parties have halted their campaigns ahead of next month's local elections in Scotland.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the entire British nation mourns with the royal family and Queen Elizabeth.

He said Philip had taken care to maintain the monarchy as an essential institution for British life, and also "Philip had designed and inspired the lives of countless young people".

MPs will return on Monday, the day before the planned end of the Easter holiday, in order to pay their respects to the House of Representatives.
