One person said: “They just showed Prince Philip’s gloves and hat, I just about burst into full cry mode. Tears are escaping.”
Another wrote: “The addition of HRH Prince Philip’s personal items, his gloves and hat, is moving.”

A third added: “Over an hour later and I am still heartbroken over the image of Philip’s hat and gloves on the seat of his horse carriage.”
One tweeted: “Ngl I’m emotional watching Prince Philip’s funeral… Seeing his carriage with his hat and gloves laid on the seat.”
Fans were also upset as they watched the Queen arrive for the funeral.
The Queen stands alone during service
Her Majesty followed her husband’s coffin in her official Bentley as her lady-in-waiting joined her on the journey.
However, due to Covid regulations, the Queen sat alone during the service.
Prince Charles and Princess Anne led the procession followed by Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Prince Harry joined behind – being separated by Anne’s son Peter Phillips.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin was draped with his personal standard along with his sword, naval cap and a wreath of flowers.
The coffin was taken to St George’s Chapel on a specially designed Land Rover, which Philip designed himself.
There was then a national minute’s silence at 3pm before the coffin was taken into the Chapel.
