Prince Philip’s body is currently resting in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

But on Saturday, Prince Philip’s coffin will be moved to the State Entrance of Windsor Castle for the funeral procession.

Carried by Land Rover, the procession through the grounds of Windsor will begin, led by the band of the Grenadier Guards.

Prince Charles, among other members of the Royal Family, is expected to walk behind the coffin.

The procession is expected to last eight minutes and will move from the Quadrangle, to Chapel Hill and down to Horseshoe Cloister.

The Royal Family website explains the Duke’s coffin will be carried by a Bearer Party found by the Royal Marines.

Tributes to Prince Philip will be visible on his coffin and throughout St George’s Chapel on the day of the funeral.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Naval Cap and Sword will be placed on the coffin ahead of the service and his insignia will be laid on the Altar of the Chapel.

2.53pm: The Land Rover carrying Prince Philip’s coffin is expected to arrive at 2.53pm at St George’s Chapel.

3pm: Mourners at the funeral will take part in a one-minute silence, along with the rest of the nation.

The coffin will pause on the steps and after the one-minute silence, the funeral service will then begin.

The coffin will be received at the top of the West Steps of St George’s Chapel by the Dean of Windsor and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The funeral service for Prince Philip will then be conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

Prince Philip will be interred in the Royal Vault within St George’s Chapel, while a lament will be played by a pipe major of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and "The Last Post" will be sounded by buglers of the Royal Marines.

After a period of silence, "the Reveille" will be sounded by the state trumpeters of the Household Cavalry.

Buglers of the Royal Marines will sound "Action Stations", which was a request Prince Philip made before he died.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will then pronounce the blessing, which will be followed by the National Anthem.

The Queen and the other mourners in attendance will then leave St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch.

The Royal Vault will not be the Duke’s final resting place.

When the Queen dies, Philip will be buried by her side at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, which is also in St George’s Chapel.
