Whereas greater than 730 members of the Armed Forces took half within the ceremony at Windsor Fort, there have been solely 30 friends on the funeral, who practiced social distancing in accordance with COVID-19 security protocols. Her Majesty sat alone.
The service was led by Dean of Windsor, the Proper Reverend David Conner and prayers have been stated by the Dean and the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend and Proper Honorable Justin Welby.
“Now we have been impressed by his unwavering loyalty to our queen, by his service to the nation and the Commonwealth, by his braveness, fortitude and religion,” stated the Dean of Windsor. “Our lives have been enriched by the challenges that he has set us, the encouragement that he has given us, his kindness, humor and humanity.”
