The British Royal family gathered at Westminster Abbey on March 29 to pay tribute to the Queen’s late husband, Prince Phillip, in a service of thanksgiving.

The event was held as Covid-19 restrictions last year put a limit of 30 people at gatherings when the Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99.

Despite persistent health issues, the Queen arrived escorted by her son, the disgraced Prince Andrew.

Her Majesty wore green to honour her late husband’s livery colour and a brooch given to her by her beloved husband in 1966.

The Duchess wore a black and white polka-dotted dress that offered a subtle tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

The Queen and Prince Philip were married in 1947 at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen was heavily involved in the memorial service which included orchids in the floral arrangements to reference the Queen’s wedding bouquet.

Approximately 1800 family members and guests were in attendance for the memorial.
