Washington Post's Booth: Britain Prepares For Philip's Funeral, Harry's Return

Apr 15, 2021

A scaled-down funeral is set for Saturday for Britain’s Prince Philip, who died last week at age 99. Queen Elizabeth’s husband lived through a tumultuous century including World War II and the decline of the British Empire. Philip’s death also comes at an unsettled time for the monarchy itself — with Prince Harry, Philip’s grandson, returning home for the first time since leaving the royal family in a highly public and messy split.

For more on what to expect, WAMC’s Ian Pickus spoke with William Booth, London Bureau Chief for the Washington Post.
