Prince William and Kate Middleton have arrived at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle for Prince Philip’s funeral.

The sombre royal couple were pictured dressed in black wearing face masks as they were driven in through the gates of Windsor Castle to join other members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, who arrived ahead of his eldest son.

The Duke of Cambridge could be seen wearing a black suit and tie, after a decision taken by the Queen that no members of the funeral party were to wear the military uniform that might be expected on such an occasion.

Prince Philip’s granddaughter Zara Phillip and her husband Mike Tindall are also present ahead of the the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral at St George's Chapel in the grounds of the royal residence in Windsor.

A number of other guests arrived for the ceremony around midday, with a convoy of funeral cars seen entering the main gates as the Queen’s guard looked on. The Archbishop of Canterbury, who will preside over the funeral alongside the Dean of Windsor, was photographed outside the chapel.

The royal family will begin to follow the hearse carrying the coffin at around 2.40pm, and a minute silence will be held across the nation at 3pm before the televised ceremony begins.

The event has been massively scaled down, with only 30 people permitted to attend amid the Covid pandemic.
