Gun salutes run across Britain to honour Prince Philip

Gun salutes rang out across Britain in Gibraltar and from vessels at sea on Saturday to mark the death of Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II.

Saluting batteries fired 41 rounds at one round every minute from midday (1100 GMT), the UK’s Ministry of Defence said.

Buckingham Palace said the prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, died on Friday morning at Windsor Castle to the west of London.

Members of the royal family led the tributes to Philip, who was also remembered by leaders around the world.
