HRH Prince Philip, Duke of EdinburghOn Saturday at 3pm the Duke of Edinburgh will be laid to rest. The Funeral Service at St George's Chapel in Windsor will begin with a National Minute's Silence. The service will be preceded by a ceremonial procession inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.

An online book of condolence is available for people across Bedfordshire to write their messages and pay their respects, and you can access the book here. The Lord Lieutenant has also arranged a Church Service of Thanksgiving today, Friday, at 5pm which will be streamed live on YouTube here. An edited version will be available after the service.

The Royal Family ask that members of the public consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral tributes in memory of The Duke. My thoughts and condolences are with Her Majesty the Queen and The Royal Family at this sad time.
