Following the service, Philip was laid to rest in the Royal Vault under St. George’s Chapel where three kings — George III, George IV and William IV — along with about 20 other royal family members, are interred. However, it will not be his final resting place. Following the death of his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh’s casket will be moved to be with hers inside the King George IV Memorial Chapel, which is also located inside the church. That small chapel is where the queen’s parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, are buried and where her the ashes of her sister, Princess Margaret, are interred.

Before his death, Prince Philip helped select the medals and regalia that were sewn, using transparent fishing wire, onto nine velvet cushions and placed on the altar inside St. George’s Chapel for his funeral service. Among the many items are his Royal Air Force wings and Field Marshal’s baton, the Greek Order of the Redeemer and the Danish Order of the Elephant — a nod to his birth as a prince of both Greece and Denmark — as well as his Royal Victorian Order collar and badge, British Empire collar and Grand Masters badge, Royal Victorian Chain and Order of Merit.
