Prince Philip is still not in his final resting place a year after his death

Prince Philip died on April 9, 2021, aged 99, launching the UK and Commonwealth into a period of mourning.

He left behind his wife the Queen, who has since gone on to celebrate her record-breaking Platinum Jubilee – but has had increasing health concerns of her own.

The Royal Family has felt as though it has entered a new era of change since Philip’s death, with his son Prince Charles and Camilla taking an increasingly prominent role at the top of the family while the Queen has made most of her appearances via video link.

Philip was buried eight days after he died, going to the grave on April 17, and receiving a royal ceremonial funeral.

But on his birthday – on which he would have turned 101 – where is Prince Philip buried?

Where is Prince Philip buried?

Prince Philip is buried in the Royal Vault of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, having been interned there in a private ceremony.

However, this will not be the Duke of Edinburgh's final resting place. Instead, he will be moved to be with his family at a later date.

Where is Prince Philip being moved to?

When his beloved Elizabeth finally dies, Philip's coffin will be moved to be with her.

She will be laid to rest in the Royal Vault in the King George VI Memorial Chapel, which is also located at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

A Service of Thanksgiving was held at Westminster Abbey to commemorate his life and death.

Philip's coffin was made for him more than 30 years ago and is lead-lined and made of English oak.

St George’s Chapel can be visited by the public.

Not all of the Royal Family end up in the same place. Princess Diana died in 1997, following a car crash in Paris.

Her funeral, which took place at Westminster Abbey on September 6 1997, was followed by a private burial at her childhood home in the Spencer family estate in Northamptonshire.

The Queen Mother and her daughter Princess Margaret both died in 2002.

The Queen Mother, Elizabeth Bowes Lyon, was 101 when she died and was laid to rest at St George’s Chapel in the King George VI Memorial Chapel, which is named after her husband who died in 1952.

Their daughter Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, was cremated but her ashes have been interred with her parents.
