H.R.H. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, passed away on April 9th at Windsor Castle at the age of 99.

The Prince was born on June 10th, 1921 as Prince of Greece and Denmark; his great grandfather was King Christian IX of Denmark.

The Prince was bestowed the Danish Order of the Elephant on November 16th, 1947. Among many other awards, he was also a Knight of the Swedish Order of the Seraphim, which he received in 1954.
The Prince's coat of arms as knight of this order was on display at Stockholm Palace, and it will now be moved to Riddarholmskyrkan (Riddarholmen Church), to be displayed with many other coats of arms of deceased knights of the Order of the Seraphim.
At the day of the funeral, the church will ring its bells without pause from 12pm to 1pm.
