Prince Philip: Special service to remember the Duke of Edinburgh
A special service is to be held at 10.30am on Sunday at Canterbury Cathedral to remember Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
The service will be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and is one of several events set to take place over the next week to remember the Duke.
The UK is officially in a period of national mourning until Saturday, April, 17, when the Duke’s funeral is set to take place.
It is expected that the funeral service will also be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Next Saturday's royal service in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, will be like no other, with the Queen and her family wearing face masks and socially distancing as they gather to say their final farewell amid coronavirus restrictions.
The royal family are being helped through this "particularly sad time" by the public outpouring of support following the death of the "much-loved" Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales has said.
Charles spoke movingly of his "dear Papa", who he said had devoted himself to the Queen, his family and the country for some 70 years.
Speaking from his Gloucestershire home of Highgrove, Charles said his father had "given the most remarkable, devoted service to the Queen, to my family and to the country, but also to the whole of the Commonwealth".
He added: "As you can imagine, my family and I miss my father enormously," and said Philip would be "deeply touched" by the people around the world sharing "our loss and our sorrow".
