Prince Philip is being honoured with a 41-gun salute at several locations across the United Kingdom.
British naval ships around the world will also take part to honour his legacy as a combat veteran.
Queen Elizabeth II's husband was at her side for more than 70 years.
He died on Friday at the age of 99.
