Prince Philip designed a Land Rover for his funeral

More and more details of Prince Philip’s funeral are coming to light, which will take place next Saturday, April 17, at the Chapel of St. George, located in Windsor Castle. According to international media, the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral service will be very attached to what his will in life was.

What some didn’t know was Felipe’s fondness for the car manufacturer Land Rover. It all started when he received a 1 Series model from the make in 1953, the last vehicle he drove off the road after an accident in January 2019. His passion for this car was so great that he even adapted it, with a group of engineers, mainly to transport his box.


The vehicle crawls across the grounds of the pre-burial castle from the state entrance to St George’s. The prince’s coffin is covered by a garland of flowers, his cap and swords of a navy commander. The hearse is followed by the four children he fathered along with Isabel II, Carlos, Ana, Andrés and Eduardo, as well as their partners. Her grandchildren, Princes William and Harry, will also be attending, although Meghan will not be attending due to her pregnancy. In total, only about 30 people will attend the funeral because of the measures imposed by the pandemic.

“Members of the Royal Family and the home of the Duke of Edinburgh walk behind the coffin of the Quadrangle, past Chapel Hill and to the Horseshoe Cloister. The funeral service begins at 3:00 pm local time with a National Silence, ”the royal family published on its official website.
