The images of the funeral are linked in a line drawn up.

No room for amateurism or last minute inspiration in this ballet dictated by the centuries.

For its farewell to Prince Philip, the British monarchy has pulled out all the stops. Military parade in the alleys of Windsor Castle.

The family, reduced to the closest - 30 people - advance at an even pace behind the Land Rover, designed by the Duke of Edinburgh, on which his coffin rests;

a cap and an officer's saber are enthroned on the latter.

As it passes, the guards respectfully bow their heads.

Emotion and humility.

Prince Charles's tears, the queen's necklace, which Diana once wore, shining around Kate Middleton's neck.

There's no hazard.

The sun is reflected on the body of the burgundy Bentley aboard which Elizabeth II sits;

he makes the decorations pinned to the

Royals'

black clothes sparkle

.

The sky is a royal blue, the air crystal clear.
