Prince Philip’s coffin was buried in the royal vault of St George’s Chapel.
It was placed on a catafalque on a marble slab and lowered into the vault by an electric motor.
Horns were played as his coffin was lowered.
A blessing was given by the Archbishop of Canterbury before the choir sang the national anthem “God Save the Queen”.
The royals looked up as the choir sang as the Queen bowed her head.
The 94-year-old monarch was then led out of the church by the Archbishop and followed by members of his family.
Prince William, his grandson, was seen staring at the safe as he left his bench.
In the funeral procession that left Windsor Castle for the Chapel was Queen Elizabeth II, who was being driven by car. It was her first public appearance since her husband’s death.
Philip’s coffin had been draped in his personal banner and was driven in a green military Land Rover Defender.
The children of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip – Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward – walked behind the Land Rover.
Queen Elizabeth II followed in a car.
During the eight-minute procession, a cannon was fired by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery from the East Lawn of Windsor Castle. (dpa / NAN)
