The royal funeral will take place tomorrow at 3 pm at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

Originally, 800 people planned on attending. However, numbers had to be scaled back considerably for safety reasons.

The congregation will consist mostly of the Duke of Edinburgh's close family. However, his great grandchildren will not be attending as they are considered too young for the funeral, which will be televised.

A national silence in honour of Prince Philip's memory will take place just before the funeral starts.

The procession will be led by the late Prince's children - Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, and his grandchildren Prince William and Prince Harry.

According to Buckingham Palace, William and Harry will not walk side by side during the procession.
