The remembrance service will be held in Canterbury Cathedral for the Duke of Edinburgh on Sunday, April 11. The news comes after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, led an online memorial service at Lambeth Palace on Saturday evening. In the online service, the Archbishop remembered Prince Philip as someone with a “deep and genuine sense of service and humility”.

He said: “It wasn’t ‘me, me, me’.

“It was about the world, about those he served, and in doing that his own role was more and more significant.

“He had a righteous impatience.

“He would not accept the status quo.

“If things were not right, he would say so and say so quickly, and clearly, and often bluntly.

“Prince Philip, also though, had a deep and genuine sense of service and humility.”
