GUN salutes took place across the UK to mark the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Tower of London and Royal navy warships led the 41 gun salutes on Saturday, April, 10, 2021.
In a statement on the royal website, it was said: "The tradition of Gun Salutes being fired throughout the country to mark significant national events dates back to at least the eighteenth century, and there are historical records of salutes taking place as early as the 14th century when guns and ammunition began to be adopted more widely.
"Similar gun salutes were fired to mark the death of Queen Victoria in 1901."
