Since Saturday morning, in the London suburb of Windsor, security measures have been tightened in connection with the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, wife of Queen Elizabeth II. A few days before the mourning ceremony, the royal family appealed to fellow citizens with an appeal not to visit Windsor Castle today due to coronavirus restrictions and not to bring flowers, but to donate money to charity.

However, people have already begun to gather around the security perimeter. Some carry portraits of Philip.

Local authorities, meanwhile, said that in the event of a crowd, the police would be forced to act in accordance with the situation.
