Prince Harry set to attend Prince Philip's funeral as Buckingham Palace reveals details - ABC News

Buckingham Palace has announced Prince Philip's funeral will be held next Saturday at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The service will take place at 3pm local time (12am AEST) and be a ceremonial royal funeral, and due to current COVID-19 restrictions feature a guest list of just 30 people.

The palace confirmed Prince Harry will return from his new home in Los Angeles for the funeral, while his pregnant wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will not attend on advice of her doctor.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, died on Friday morning at Windsor Castle aged 99.

"The occasion will still celebrate and recognise the Duke's life and his more than 70 years of service to the queen, the UK and the Commonwealth," a palace spokesman said.

The Queen has approved eight days of national mourning up until the funeral, while the royal family will observe two weeks of mourning following the prince's death.

The service will be preceded by a national minute's silence, and there will be no public access or public procession before the funeral.

More to come.
