Prince Philip's funeral day will receive extensive TV coverage both in the UK and around the world.

As the consort of the Queen, Prince Phillip is entitled to a state funeral.

But according to reports, and in keeping with the Duke’s no-fuss public image, it is believed that he had asked not to be given a full state funeral.

Instead, it is thought that he has requested what will fundamentally be a military funeral, with a private service held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and burial in Frogmore Gardens

What TV coverage of the funeral will there be?

It is expected that only family members and a small number of heads of state will attend the service.

TV cameras will not be allowed inside the chapel, unlike for royal weddings.

The day will be covered around the globe on TV, however.

When is Prince Philip’s funeral?
