The fallen Duke of Edinburg Prince Philip will be laid to rest on Saturday, April 17 according to family sources. 

The announcement was made by Philip's eldest son Princ Charles aged 72 set to assume his father's position. Charles eulogized his late father as a special person who will be missed dearly by all. 

Owing to the present Covid-19 situation, the burial will strictly be limited to close family members and inner circle friends, while the rest will have to follow lifestreaming live from St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, London West.

Prince Harry is expected to join the family in seeing off his father, despite their recent fallout from the royal family. However, his wife Meghan may not be attending after medics warned her against traveling while expecting her second child. 

The family has stated in advance that flowers won't be accepted due to the ongoing pandemic. To avoid so many physical activities, online condolence has also been established where people can register their condolences.

Prince Philip reportedly lost his battle on Friday, about two months to his 100th birthday. Many have since termed his demise as a blow to Queen Elizabeth II aged 94 who at one point described her husband as the reason behind her advanced age.

He had been ailing for a while, having been admitted and discharged from hospital on several occasions. The pair had been living in Windsor over Covid-19 owing to their advanced age. 

In January this year, the duo got their first Covid-19 vaccine jab.
