THIS is how a secret photographer will hide in plain sight at the Queen's funeral today – but can you spot where?

Royal photographer Arthur Edwards captured Prince Philip's funeral last year while hiding and drawing zero attention to himself.


And after he photographed the most emotional moments of the family he had snapped for 44 years, he shared the secret to staying hidden.

He explained how the Duke of Edinburgh had arranged for him to hide inside a fake pillar at the top of the stairs leading to St George's Chapel.

Arthur said it had a letter box-shaped slit and was "just like the bird-watching hides where Prince Philip spent hours during his retirement at Sandringham".

And today, there will be a similar set-up to capture the most intimate moments of the Queen's state funeral.
