The United Kingdom faces a week of mourning for the death of Prince Philip

London / The United Kingdom faces a week of national mourning after the death of Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of 99. During this period, flags will fly at half mast, Parliament won’t pass new laws and the Government will suspend non-essential public announcements.

The House of Commons has convened on Monday an extraordinary session in which the parliamentarians will pay tribute to the memory of the Duke of Edinburgh, whose funeral will take place next Saturday at the Chapel of St. George, inside Windsor Castle.

Until the funeral has been held, the presenters of the main television networks in the United Kingdom will wear black, ministers will cancel their public functions and routine press conferences on the fight against the pandemic will be suspended.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson won’t be present at Philip’s funeral, which can only be attended by 30 people due to the restrictions still in place against the coronavirus.

His official Downing Street office has reported that Johnson resigns to be present at the ceremony to be officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury to allow more members of the royal family to say farewell to Philip at the funeral. (April 12, 2021, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
