Prince Philip memorial service LIVE – Queen defies health fears as she WALKS into Westminster Abbey to pay tribute

THE Queen defied fears over her health as she walked into Westminster Abbey for Prince Philip’s memorial service today.

The Queen was driven from Windsor to London with Prince Andrew by her side and sat surrounded by family inside the Abbey, unlike at Prince Philip’s scaled-back funeral last April.

The service was attended by guests including senior members of the Royal Family and politicians such as Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak.

The Duke of Edinburgh was remembered in the poignant memorial service as a “man of rare ability and distinction”.

The memorial featured elements the Duke planned for his own funeral which were forbidden due to Covid-19 restrictions

The Duke’s express wishes for the congregation to sing the rousing hymn Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer, and for clergy from Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral to play a part were also finally granted.

Prince Harry was not in attendance, however, with royal author Phil Dampier saying : “It’s very sad that Harry and Meghan won’t be at Prince Philip’s memorial service and I think one day Harry might regret it.”
