The British military paid respects to Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth II's husband, who passed away last week at the age of 99.

Gun salutes from canons were heard in London and Edinburgh as British citizens gathered outside Buckingham Palace to lay flowers in memory of the prince.

Prince Philip was married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years, celebrating their 73rd anniversary in November 2020.
