The arrangements are codenamed Forth Bridge, after the Scottish landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site, and alterations have been made to ensure the service is in line with coronavirus measures.

The duke's coffin will be carried to the entrance of Windsor Castle by a Bearer Party of The Queen's Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards.

The coffin will then be placed into a specially modified Land Rover, which Philip helped to design, and it will be transported to St George’s Chapel.

The coffin will be received at the foot of the West Steps, and the national anthem will play as it enters the Horseshoe Cloister.

A party of Royal Marines will then carry the coffin up the steps, before pausing for the minute’s silence.

The coffin will be received by the Dean of Windsor together with the Archbishop of Canterbury, and most of the procession will stay outside of the chapel, expect for members of the Royal Family and the duke's private secretary Archie Miller Bakewell.

The funeral service will then begin as the coffin enters St George’s Chapel.

BBC One will be broadcasting the service live on April 17 from 3pm.
