The British fashion house was set to broadcast the show on its website with no live audience, similar to other fashion labels amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to WWD, Burberry has a long history outfitting the royal family. The brand was granted a Royal Warrant — a mark of recognition to people or companies who regularly supply goods or services to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales or their households — to Prince Charles as an Outfitter in 1990. In 1955, Queen Elizabeth granted Burberry a Royal Warrant as a Weatherproofer, as the brand is known for is well-crafted outerwear and all-weather gear.

The postponed presentation will probably take place after the Duke's funeral, which will be broadcasted live from St. George's Chapel, Windsor, on Saturday at 3 p.m. U.K. time (10 a.m. ET).

The funeral will take place entirely within the grounds of the castle and plans have been given final approval by the Queen but they "still very much reflect the personal wishes of the Duke. The occasion will still celebrate and recognize the Duke's life and his more than 70 years of service to the Queen, the U.K. and the Commonwealth."

It will be a ceremonial royal funeral and not a state funeral, which are generally reserved for monarchs. The funeral plans take into account the country's COVID guidelines and is "much reduced in scale with no public access," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

The late royal is currently lying at rest at Windsor Castle.

On the day of the funeral, Philip's coffin will be moved in a small ceremonial procession from the state entrance to the castle to the chapel. The funeral will begin with a nationally-observed minute's silence at 10 a.m. E.T.

Prince Phillip, the love of Queen Elizabeth's life, died on April 9. He was 99.

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," Buckingham Palace said in a statement Friday.
