Prince Philip wanted a 'no fuss' funeral
Following Prince Philip's death, the queen announced she is entering an eight-day mourning period. During this time, she will not take on any royal duties.
According to Bustle, the mourning period begins "Operation Forth Bridge," which is the royal family's code name for the following days and weeks after the prince's passing. "London Bridge Down," is the code name for when the queen dies.
On April 17, eight days after Philip's death, he will be memorialized at a funeral. Millions of people from the UK and around the world will tune in to watch.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the UK's restrictions on public gatherings, the funeral will look drastically different, and the royal family will be restricted in how they publicly mourn the duke.
The funeral service will be held at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.
At the time of writing, there is a 30-person limit to attend funerals, according to the UK government website, and those in attendance will be the Queen and the royal family. The original plan for Philip's funeral included a guest list of 800 attendees, according to Sky News.
While Philip was entitled to a state funeral as consort to the Queen, he once said that he didn't want the "fuss," according to a 2017 report by The Independent.
The public has been asked not to attend any funeral events due to the coronavirus. The processions will not be public.
Before the service, there will be a national minute of silence in the UK to honor the duke's life at 3 p.m. local time.
