Guardsmen and cavalry on Thursday went through their paces as they rehearsed for Prince Philip‘s funeral on Saturday.

Soldiers on horseback trotted down the Long Walk towards Windsor Castle while mask-wearing Marines stood grasping their weapons at HMS Collingwood in Fareham, Hampshire, ahead of the big day.

The Ministry of Defence shared pictures of The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, Navy crew from HMS Heron and commandos practising their roles.

Meanwhile other military personnel rehearsed for the event at Army Training Centre Pirbright, near London, as the sun came out.

One of the four Royal Marine buglers who will play ‘The Last Post’ at the service said it was an ‘honor and privilege’ to perform the role.

Sgt Bugler Jamie Ritchie said: ‘It’s incredibly important. We feel nervous. We feel the pressure, but we’re channeling that and we’re using that and we’re going to deliver an outstanding performance.’
