“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement at the time. “His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

The Queen and Prince Philip, who wed on November 20, 1947, were married for almost 74 years. The couple share four children: Prince Charles, 72, Princess Anne, 70, Prince Andrew, 61, and Prince Edward, 57. Due to the current health crisis, Prince Philip’s funeral will only have 30 attendees, which include the Queen, Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton and other royals. According to Omid Scobie, co-author of Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Familythe event will be more low-key, per Philip’s request before he died. “With Prince Philip, he has asked for a much more quieter event. He has asked, in his words, a simple affair and that is exactly what is happening at the ceremonial service that will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle,” Scobie told Entertainment Tonight.
