Watch: Windsor gets ready for Prince Philip's funeral
On Saturday, a royal funeral like no other will take place as the Duke of Edinburgh is laid to rest at Windsor Castle.
The funeral has to comply with the UK's current coronavirus guidelines, which means the guest list was trimmed down from about 800 to 30.
Mourners will wear face masks, and many of them will be sat alone inside the quire of St George's Chapel.
The images will be a stark contrast to the last major royal funeral, when the Queen Mother was laid to rest on 9 April 2002.
She lay in state for three days before her funeral, at Westminster Hall.
Crowds of hundreds of thousands of people queued to pay their respects to the much-loved Queen Mother who saw Britain through the Second World War. An estimated 200,000 people paid respects to her at the hall.
Some 11,887 police staff and 1,306 civilian staff were deployed from the day the Queen Mother died, 30 March 2002, until to the day of the funeral on 9 April.
Members of the public threw flowers as the coffin passed by and thousands of tributes were laid on the Mall.
After the procession of her coffin to lie in state, a Vigil of the Princes was mounted by Prince Charles, Prince Edward, Prince Edward and David Armstrong-Jones, the Viscount Linley.
When a two minute silence was held at 11.30am on the day of the funeral the hundred thousand strong crowd stood in near silence.
Then Dean of Westminster Dr Wesley Carr said it was “remarkable” that a crowd so large were so quiet.
The funeral at Westminster Abbey had 2,200 guests. Famous faces included 35 members of the royal family, four former Prime Ministers, US First Lady Laura Bush and Dame Vera Lynn.
The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince William, the Duke of York, the Princess Royal, the Prince of Wales and Peter Phillips stood in front of the coffin in Westminster Abbey.
Prince Charles appeared to be holding back tears as he said goodbye to his grandmother.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, then Dr George Carey thanked the Queen Mother for her "faithful duty and unwearied service.”
"Like the sun, she bathed us in her warm glow."
The coffin was carried out of Westminster Abbey and the Duke of York, Prince William, the Prince of Wales, Prince Harry, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Peter Phillips and Prince Edward followed behind.
The coffin was then driven from Westminster Abbey to St George’s Chapel in Windsor where she was buried alongside her husband George VI and their daughter HRH Princess Margaret.
On the eve of the funeral in April 2002, the Queen had delivered a televised address to the nation and the Commonwealth about her mother.
She said: "I thank you for the support you are giving me and my family as we come to terms with her death and the void she has left in our midst."
She added: "Over the years I have met many people who have had to cope with family loss, sometimes in the most tragic of circumstances.
"So I count myself fortunate that my mother was blessed with a long and happy life.
"She had an infectious zest for living, and this remained with her until the very end.
'I know too that her faith was always a great strength to her."
For the Duke of Edinburgh, who reportedly "didn't want a fuss", the scaled back ceremony may well have suited his tastes.
"He doesn’t see himself as important enough for that," an aide once said when asked about the duke’s opinions on lying in state.
Crowds are urged to stay away from Windsor on Saturday, for what will be a markedly different royal funeral.
Inside the quire of St George's Chapel, the image of a Queen, sat alone, will be striking.
