An apparent error on the UK government’s website accidentally revealed the date of Prince Philip’s funeral – the morning of Saturday April 17, according to a report on Friday.

The 99-year-old royal died on Friday at his home in Windsor Castle, where he and his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, had stayed during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“On April 9, 2021, Buckingham Palace announced the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh,” read the post that has since been removed from the Gov.uk website, as the website revealed on Friday. British information Express.co.uk.

“From that date, a period of national mourning began and will continue for eight days until the morning of the funeral,” continued the advertisement apparently posted in error.

“During this time, the government will issue guidelines for the public, organizations and businesses to observe the period of mourning,” he said.

The government website says so far only that “further announcements will be made in due course.”

Buckingham Palace has been cautious about putting forward details of the funeral – due to coronavirus restrictions and Philip’s stated aversion to ‘any fuss’.

His last wish was to die peacefully at his home, sources told The Post.
