Prince Philip To Join Late Kings And Queens In A 200-Year-Old Iron Vault

Prince Philip will become the 25th Royal in the 200-year-old vault hidden beneath St George’s Chapel in Windsor when he is buried.

 

The Duke of Edinburgh, who died last Friday aged 99, will join a range of kings and queens behind a set of iron gates around 16ft underground.

 

Among the notables already there include George III, George IV, George V of Hanover and William IV.

 

His coffin will be lowered into the Royal Vault at around 3pm and will stay there until the Queen dies
