We were offered the opportunity to provide official video coverage of the local Commemoration Service held in Guernsey to provide an opportunity for reflection on, and commemoration of, the life of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh who sadly passed away on 9th April. A three camera system was deployed to cover all angles within the church with seven microphone feeds ensuring a fuller sound recording of the whole service. The order of service was based on the Service of Commemoration published by The Queen’s Printer, Cambridge University Press, which was used in many churches and cathedral services of commemoration across the British Isles.

The service was fully subtitled and made available within days of the service taking place, enabling those not present at the event to watch and consume the full ceremony, which can be viewed below.
