Prince Philip has died at the age of 99 and plans have now begun for his funeral.
While details are yet to be announced, it's likely to be a smaller occasion than he would be entitled to, as he did not like a fuss, and there are current COVID restrictions in the UK limiting rules around large gatherings.
The Duke of Edinburgh is expected to be given a ceremonial royal funeral at St George's Chapel, rather than a state one and will not lie in state.
According to protocol, as the Queen's consort, Philip is to be honoured with a ceremonial royal funeral, as the Queen Mother was in 2002.
Diana, Princess of Wales, was also given a form of ceremonial royal funeral, despite no longer being an HRH.
Unlike when the Queen dies, there won't be as many heads of state in attendance, or politicians.
However his family will turn out for their final goodbyes.
Plans for his funeral have been kept secret for many years, under the code name Operation Forth Bridge.
The longest serving consort, Philip racked up tens of thousands of royal engagements during his decades by the side of the Queen.
His death triggers her personal time of mourning, which will include an eight-day period where no parliamentary bills will be given royal assent.
The Queen will remain in mourning, carrying out duties behind closed doors, for about 22 days after his funeral.
Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II has been widowed at 94 after losing her husband of more than 70 years.
The pair married in Westminster Abbey in 1947, shortly after the war, and had four children, eight grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
Elizabeth called Philip her "strength and stay" and he was a significant support to her throughout her reign.
She will sign off on his funeral plans and will lead the family in mourning.
Prince Charles and Camilla
Prince Charles may have had a rocky relationship with his father as a young man, but the pair were often seen laughing and joking together as they got older, at family events and celebrations.
Charles is sure to have an important role in supporting his mother over the next few weeks and months, having picked up his royal duties with her when his father retired in 2017.
He and his wife Camilla, who became a firm part of the family, will be there to pay their respects.
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, took over one of Philip's roles as Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles in 2020, showing their much improved relationship.
The Cambridge family
Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, will be attending.
William said he was "so proud" of his grandfather in January 2021 when he received the coronavirus vaccine.
He was supported by his grandfather after the death of his mother in 1997, when Philip walked with William and Harry behind the coffin of Diana at her funeral.
The Sussex family
Although they have spent the last year in California after leaving their senior royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan will hope to attend the funeral of his beloved grandfather.
Whether their son Archie will make the trip is less sure, but it’s likely the couple would want to bring him because of their respect for the Queen and the duke.
However the couple may be scuppered by ongoing restrictions linked to the coronavirus pandemic.
Since leaving their senior royal roles, the couple started a production company, and make documentaries, scripted series and children’s shows for Netflix.
They also run a non-profit organisation, called Archewell.
The Princess Royal, Prince Philip's only daughter, will be in attendance, paying tribute to her mother on whom she likely modelled her working life.
Anne has regularly been one of the hardest working royals in the family, frequently clocking up hundreds of engagements each year.
She and her father were said to be close throughout her childhood, sharing similar values and personality traits. Her father once said of her "If it doesn't fart or eat hay, she's not interested".
Anne will be accompanied by her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.
Prince Andrew, Prince Philip's second oldest son, has largely been out of sight since he stepped back indefinitely from royal duties, over the fallout of his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, in 2019.
Andrew was a frequent visitor to Epstein’s New York home and allegations were levelled against Andrew by one of the women who claimed to be a victim.
The Duke of York denied all allegations and no charges were brought against him.
Andrew may be forced to stay away from most royal events, but he would be unlikely to accept missing his father’s funeral.
The Wessex family
Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, will be in attendance with their children, Louise and James.
The family was particularly close to the Queen, and their close proximity to Windsor Castle mean they are able to see her frequently, so they will want to offer her support at this time.
It's previously been reported that Edward will take on the title of Duke of Edinburgh when Prince Philip died, so that might be announced by the palace.
Edward and Sophie started life as working royals in 2002, during the Queen’s jubilee year. They increasingly came to the forefront of the family when Andrew had to step back and Harry and Meghan moved to the US.
Their children are unlikely to take on royal duties but they will be regulars at royal events, including the funeral.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank
The children of Prince Andrew and their husbands will also attend the funeral, though it’s not as clear if their mother would be there.
Beatrice is married to property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who she wed in a secret ceremony during the coronavirus pandemic. He has a son, Wulfie, who is unlikely to attend.
Eugenie is married to tequila brand ambassador Jack Brooksbank. They married in a grand ceremony in Windsor in October 2018.
Eugenie and Jack have one son, August, but he will probably stay at home for the funeral.
Neither princess carries out royal duties, but do have private charities they are patrons of. The princesses have previously spoken about their royal grandparents with great affection.
The Phillips family
Peter Phillips, Anne’s son, will be in attendance. He is divorced, but his former wife Autumn Phillips may well accompany him.
They have two daughters, Savannah and Isla Phillips. It's not known if they could be considered too young for the event, however their younger cousins - the Cambridge children - could be there.
Phillips and his family don't have royal titles, but retain places in the line of succession.
The Tindall family
Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, and her husband Mike Tindall, will be at the funeral.
They have three children, two daughters, called Mia and Lena, and one son called Lucas.
The couple don't have royal titles but they are still a part of the Royal Family and are seen at events like Trooping the Colour.
The Viscount Linley
David Armstrong-Jones, the Viscount Linley, is the son of Princess Margaret, the Queen’s younger sister.
He is divorced from his wife, Serena, the Viscountess Linley, but the length of their marriage prior to that could indicate she will still attend Prince Philip's funeral. They were both present at the Queen Mother’s funeral in 2002.
They have two children, Charles and Margarita, who may also attend the funeral. The family have been regulars at the Queen’s Christmas lunch which she hosts at Buckingham Palace.
Lady Sarah and Daniel Chatto
Lady Sarah is the daughter of the late Princess Margaret. She is married to Daniel Chatto, an actor.
They both attended the funeral of the Queen Mother in 2002.
They have two children, Arthur and Samuel, and as the Queen’s great nephews, they are likely to be at the funeral, and considered an important part of the family.
Their youngest son, Arthur, was a page of honour for the Queen for six years, meaning he held a position in state occasions, carrying the train of her dress.
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester
The Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, and his wife, will be in attendance. They have been working royals for decades, having come to their roles suddenly when the duke’s older brother died.
They represent hundreds of charities and carry out numerous engagements throughout the years.
They are likely to continue supporting King Charles III in his new role, and they will be at the funeral to pay their respects to Prince Philip.
They have three children - Alexander Windsor, Lady Davina Windsor, and Lady Rose Gilman.
Alexander, who is the Earl of Ulster, has three children, while Lady Davina and Lady Rose have two each.
The Duke and Duchess of Kent
The Duke of Kent is another of the Queen’s cousins, and he and his wife, Katherine the Duchess of Kent, will attend.
He carries out royal duties, and will want to offer support to the Queen and pay respects to Prince Philip.
Katherine has been out of the public eye for many years, having decided to retire from royal duties in 2002, and stop using her HRH style. She became a music teacher at a school in Hull, where she was simply Mrs Kent.
They have three living children and 10 grandchildren, some of whom may be in attendance at the funeral.
Their children are George Windsor, Lady Helen Taylor and Lord Nicholas Windsor. The duchess had a stillborn son in 1977 called Patrick.
Another of the Queen’s cousins, Princess Alexandra, is a working royal who will attend the funeral.
She was widowed in 2004, after being married to Sir Angus Ogilvy for more than 40 years. They had two children, Marina and James, who could accompany their mother on the important occasion.
Marina is married to Paul Mowatt and they have two children Zenouska and Christian. James is married to Julia Ogilvy and they have two children too, Flora and Alexander.
Princess Anne was Alexandra’s chief bridesmaid when she married Ogilvy, demonstrating a close bond between the cousins.
Prince and Princess Michael of Kent
Prince Michael is another cousin of the Queen, and he and his wife Princess Michael of Kent have been regular attendees at royal events, but they don’t carry out engagements.
They live in an apartment in Kensington Palace, which the Queen paid their rent on for some time, after outrage that they were living there for free.
The couple has two children - Lord Frederick Windsor and Lady Gabriella Kingston. Lord Windsor is married to Sophie Winkleman, and Lady Kingston is married to Thomas Kingston.
Their children are likely to join them at the funeral.
The Earl and Countess of Ulster
Alexander Windsor is the only son of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. The Duke is a cousin of the Queen.
He is married to Claire Booth and they are known as the Earl and Countess of Ulster.
They have two children, a son called Xan and a daughter called Cosima, who have been on the balcony for Trooping the Colour but might be too young to attend the funeral.
The Earl has a military background but now works in non-governmental roles.
The Earl and Countess of St Andrews
George Windsor and Sylvana Palma Windsor are known as the Earl and Countess of St Andrews.
He is the oldest son of the Duke of Kent, and a former diplomat who now works with several charities.
The couple has three children, who could also attend the ceremony.
Lord Downpatrick, Lady Marina, Lady Amelia Windsor
The Duke and Duchess of Kent’s three children are all likely to attend the funeral. As non-working royals, they are regular attendees at events like Trooping the Colour.
Lady Amelia Windsor is the most recognised of the three children, thanks to her career as a model.
Lady Marina and Lord Downpatrick have both forfeited their places in the line of succession as they were confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church.
Lady Marina also has a modelling past, while Edward Windsor, who is the Lord Downpatrick, is a fashion designer.
Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor
The son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Lord Frederick Windsor is likely to attend with his wife, Sophie Winkleman.
They are regulars at royal events like weddings and the annual Christmas lunch.
However while their children attend celebratory engagements, they might be deemed too young for the funeral. Their daughter Maud was a bridesmaid for Lady Gabriella in 2019.
Lady Gabriella Kingston and Thomas Kingston
The daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Lady Gabriella is likely to be there with her husband Thomas Kingston.
They were married in 2019 in St George's Chapel, and the Queen and Prince Philip attended the celebration.
She’s a freelance journalist and in 2020, released her first single.
The couple don’t yet have children.
Details of the funeral will be released in the next few days, the Palace has said.
