The Royal family said farewell to Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's husband of 73 years, who died last week on Friday,aged 99.

The Duke of Edinburgh, who was the longest-serving consort of any British monarch, was delivered to a royal vault on the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

On his funeral, he was honored by the Queen in a loving and heartbreaking gesture, as she placed a handwritten note on top of the Duke of Edinburgh's coffin, along with carefully selected flowers.

The monarch signed the note with the nickname Lilibet, a nickname she was given as a child. On the handwritten note that appeared to say ‘I love you,’ the rest of the note was kept hidden by the Palace.

Philip’s coffin was covered with his Personal Standard that represented both his Greek heritage and British titles. His lord high admiral Naval cap and Royal Navy officer’s sword was also placed on top.
