While the ceremony was going on, a number of Ghanaians also gathered on the streets at Tottenham in London to bid the late consort a farewell.

The funeral was fully Ghanaian replete with Ghanaian dressing, music, and dance and even procedures for funerals in Ghana.

Mourners were seen clad in black mourning outfits with the women mostly dressed in kaba and slit.

A group of drummers are seen dishing out tunes of kete and adowa from their fontomfrom and atumpan drums just like it is done in the Akan areas of the county.

For the most part of the funeral, messages were delivered in Twi and translated into English for the non-speakers.

Addressing the gathering, one of the organisers indicated that they were holding the funeral because of Ghana’s long association with the UK.

According to him, but for the restrcitions on social gatherings, their funeral for the late Duke of Edinburgh would have been held at the venue of the main ceremony.

The visit saw Prince Philip travelling to Kumasi to see the Asantehene held a grand durbar at the Kumasi Sports Stadium (now Baba Yara Stadium) to welcome them.
