Prince Philip, the Queen's beloved husband of more than 73 years, is being laid to rest with a ceremonial royal funeral at St George's Chapel, Windsor.

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9 at the age of 99. His family, staff and Armed Forces members have gathered to pay tribute to him and say farewell to the man Her Majesty described as her "strength and stay" throughout more than 73 years of marriage.
