Prince Philip, the husband of British monarch Queen Elizabeth, passed away a little over a week ago.

The Duke of Edinburgh was laid to rest on Saturday, April 17, 2021, in a ceremony held at the St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

While the ceremony was going on, a number of Ghanaians also gathered on the streets at Tottenham in London to bid the late consort a farewell.

The funeral was fully Ghanaian replete with Ghanaian dressing, music, and dance and even procedures for funerals in Ghana.

In a video sighted by TUKO.co.ke, mourners were seen clad in black mourning outfits with the women mostly dressed in Kaba.

A group of drummers are seen dishing out tunes of Kete and Adowa from their fontomfrom and Atumpan drums just like it is done in the Akan areas of the county.

For the most part of the funeral, messages were delivered in Twi and translated into English for the non-speakers.

Addressing the gathering, one of the organisers indicated that they were holding the funeral because of Ghana’s long association with the UK.

According to him, but for the restrictions on social gatherings, their funeral for the late Duke of Edinburgh would have been held at the venue of the main ceremony.

TUKO.co.ke recently reported on a touching goodby note penned by Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate her fallen husband, Prince Philip.

The handwritten note acted as a beautiful reminisce to their early days as lovers.

According to E! News, the note read in part, “I love you”, which was fitting as the two, who met when the queen was only 13 years old, used to communicate in letters back in the day.

Queen Elizabeth II sat alone inside the chapel per the COVID-19 strict guidelines, and even whilst wearing a mask, one could tell she was in deep grief.
