Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, will be formally laid to rest on Saturday, April 17th at Prince George’s Chapel in London. For those who want to watch the ceremonial royal funeral live, both ABC and CBS are providing special coverage along with specific livesteam links.
The longest serving royal, Prince Philip died on April 9th at the age of 99. It’s been reported that despite leaving the Royal family, Prince Harry will attend his grandfather’s funeral — though Meghan Markle, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, has been advised by her doctor not to attend.
The ABC News livestream of the funeral will begin at 9:30 a.m. ET led by World News Tonight anchor David Muir, Deborah Roberts, Foreign Correspondents James Longman and Maggie Rulli, and contributors Robert Jobson, Victoria Murphy, and Omid Scobie.
ABC News Radio will also live offer coverage, anchored by Michelle Franzen with additional reporting by Tom Rivers in London.
Additionally, CBS will broadcast the live funeral coverage on Saturday, April 17th, beginning 9:30 a.m. ET. Anchored by Gayle King, who covered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, King will be joined by author Tina Brown (“The Diana Chronicles), royal commentator Wesley Kerr, and CBS correspondents Charlie D’Agata and Holly Williams.
CBSN, the network’s 24/7 streaming news service, will stream all special coverage along with additional reports and interviews throughout the day. While CBSN is a part of the Paramount+ streaming service, it’s always free.
For both livestreams and coverage specials, you won’t need to pay anything to be able to watch as long as you have the livestream links. In fact, you don’t even need those links above — ABC News will have its livestreamed coverage available on YouTube. You can find the ABC News Live channel right here.
