Today, members of the British royal family paid their final respects to the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Philip, the longtime husband of Queen Elizabeth and royal consort passed away on April 9 at age 99.

Though most royal funerals involve crowds of spectators and many attendees, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Prince’s ceremony was small and limited primarily to family.
