Britain’s Prince Charles visited the Welsh Guards on Wednesday (May 5) and said his late father, Prince Philip would have been “enormously proud” of the role they played in his funeral parade.
Speaking to troops at Combermere Barracks, Windsor, Charles thanked them again, saying both he and his family were “deeply moved” by the way they performed their duty on the day.
The funeral, which was broadcast live, took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle at 3 p.m. (1400 GMT) on April 17 this year.
It was a ceremonial royal funeral, rather than a state funeral, with most of the details in keeping with Prince Philip’s personal wishes.
During his visit on Wednesday to the barracks, Prince Charles planted a commemorate tree in the garden and viewed the battalion’s new memorial.
