by HB Auld, Jr.

His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was buried today following a state funeral at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, United Kingdom.

The Prince and Queen Elizabeth, II, were married 73 years. Prince Philip died a week ago, just months shy of his 100th birthday.

Today’s funeral followed pandemic protocols with a limit of just 30 of the royal family members in attendance. The funeral service was led by Justin Welby, the current Archbishop of Canterbury. Welby is the 105th in a line of Archbishops going back more than 1400 years to the first Archbishop in 597.
