How sweet is this?!

On Prince Philip's coffin, Queen Elizabeth left a hand-written note for him on his coffin. She signed the note with her childhood nickname which is Lilibet. The note was placed alongside a wreath of white blooms including lilies, roses, freesia and sweet peas, placed right on top of his coffin.

All of the flower arrangements were chosen by the Queen herself. The Duke of Edinburgh's coffin was covered in his personal standard and carried his sword, naval cap and a wreath of flowers. After an eight minute procession and 50-minute service, his coffin was lowered into the Royal Vault.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married for 73 years.
