ROYALS UNITED IN GRIEF: The most emotionally-charged moments from Prince Philip's funeral

They live their life in the spotlight and are often known to embrace the British mantra of the "stiff upper lip" when it comes masking their emotions.
But for the past week since Prince Philip's passing, the British Royals have been like any other family rocked by the heartbreaking loss of a loved one, and their raw emotions have been on full display.
From Prince Charles' emotional tribute to his "dear papa" to Sophie of Wessex's tearful description of Prince Philip's final moments before he passed, it's been humbling and humanising to see the royals band together to mourn Prince Philip.
As they gathered to farewell Prince Philip at a socially distanced funeral service at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday April 17, the family were understandably moved by the service.
At one point, Sophie of Wessex could be seen wiping tears away from her eyes.
While a tearful Prince Charles was also overcome with emotion during the funeral procession.
But perhaps the most poignant image of the day was that of Queen Elizabeth II sitting by herself in the pews. Due to the current COVID guidelines, the 94-year-old had to farewell her husband with no one by her side. The stirring picture of the monarch alone in her grief has since gone viral around the world.
