    New Zealand holds a state memorial service for the U.K.’s Prince Philip with music and speeches at the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul.

    Queen Elizabeth sat by herself at the funeral of Prince Philip on Saturday. The queen sat apart from family members at the simple but somber ceremony at Windsor Castle, in accordance with strict social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Philip, the queen’s husband of 73 years who was also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, took part in planning his own funeral and its focus on family was in accordance with his wishes. The duke also took part in designing the modified Land Rover that will carry his coffin.
