Prince Philip was the oldest and longest-serving royal aide in world history. With the announcement of Philip’s death, a timetable called Fort Bridge came into effect, setting state and ethical tasks until the time of the funeral.
As a first step, Lord William Robert Peel, the highest civil servant of the court, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson will consult with the Queen to inquire whether the ruler has any special preference for the funeral.
With the announcement of Philip’s death on Friday, national mourning began in England, which will last until the prince’s funeral.
Philip, the ruler’s late husband, will attend a state funeral, but the Prince of Edinburgh has repeatedly made it clear that he does not want a large – scale ceremony and wants a private farewell with low military honors at St. George’s Fort Chapel.
In recent years, the Philippines has expressed a desire to relax in Frogmore Garden, a burial ground reserved for members of the royal family in Windsor Castle Park. Here, Queen Victoria, II. Queen Elizabeth died in 1901 along with her great-grandmother and Prince Albert, Victoria’s husband.
Following the announcement of the death, the British flag was hoisted on half masts in all public buildings in the UK. According to the ethical rules of national mourning, all members of the House of Commons in London wear black armor until the funeral, and male members wear black ties. The same is true for members of the royal family.
