The Duke of Edinburgh “was involved in every detail” of planning his funeral, the Archbishop of Canterbury told Sky News.

The Right Reverend Justin Welby said Saturday’s service order has been planned for over 25 years.

“He was more than involved in its planning – he was involved in every detail,” Welby told Dermot Murnaghan.

“It has been meticulously planned over a quarter of a century and when the service order is seen, its imprint will be everywhere.

“He didn’t want stories and he knew exactly what he wanted in them.

“It’s thoughtful and I think people who listen to the service, watch it on TV, will find it speaks very deeply to their own hearts.”
