Politicians and dignitaries remember Prince Philip


Boris Johnson joined senior politicians from across the House of Commons as they came together to remember Prince Philip today.

The Prime Minister was driven the short trip from Downing Street to Westminster Abbey in his work Range Rover ahead of the congregation.

He joined a raft of colleagues including Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Home Secretary Priti Patel and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss on the front row in the iconic venue.

Behind them sat opposition figures including Nicola Sturgeon, Mark Drakeford, Ian Blackford and Sir Ed Davey, as well as top civil servant Simon Case.

And a row back from them were military chiefs such as Chief of the Defence Staff Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, who took over from General Sir Nick Carter in November.

Other notable political figures also in attendance were Professor Sir Chris Whitty and outgoing Met Police chief Cressida Dick.

The PM was expected to be joined by his wife Carrie, but she did not appear to have made the trip and was thought to have remained at No 10 with their two young children.
