Published list of those present at the funeral of Prince Philip



Buckingham Palace has published the list of people who will attend the funeral of Prince Philip in the chapel of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

With only 30 participants – a list shortened by British rules for social distancing – it will be a very intimate and very royal affair.

Here’s a breakdown of who’s going:

QUEEN ELIZABETH

Philip’s widow of more than 70 years, Queen Elizabeth, will, of course, attend.

She has a strong hand in planning the funeral, even forbidding those present to wear military uniforms to save their son Prince Andrew and grandson Prince Harry from the inconvenience of standing out, as they are both forced to resign from royal duties.

PRINCE CHARLES AND FAMILY

The eldest, Elizabeth and Philip̵

7;s heir to the throne, Prince Charles – who was photographed to tears as he watched a floral tribute to his “Pope” on Thursday – will be present with his wife, Camilla.

Charles’ two sons with Princess Diana, Crown Prince William and Prince Harry, who landed on Sunday, will also be present.

William will have his wife Kate Middleton by his side, but Harry’s wife, Megan Markle, is seven months pregnant with their second child and stays at home in Los Angeles.

The brothers will not go to each other’s funeral, a decision that Buckingham Palace says has nothing to do with the rift between them and their wives around Megxit.

PRINCESS ANNE AND FAMILY

Elizabeth and Philip’s second eldest child, Princess Anne, will be present with her retired Royal Navy officer, Sir Timothy Lawrence.

Ann 70, recently welcomed “his father’s legacy, which inspires us.”

Both Anne and Timothy’s children will be present. They are Peter Phillips, 43, the Queen’s eldest grandson, who will attend alone, and Zara. 39 – the queen’s eldest granddaughter – who goes with her husband Mike Tyndall.

PRINCE ANDRE AND FAMILY

The next of the Queen’s children and Philip is the scandalous Prince Andrew, 61, who will attend without a plus-one and without a uniform, although he hoped to wear it before his mother’s edict not to wear a uniform.

He had retired from the high-ranking Royal Navy because of his friendship with pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Both his daughters with his ex Sarah Ferguson will be present. Princess Beatrice, 32, will be there with her one-year-old husband, Edoardo Mapelli Motzi. Princess Eugenie, 31, will be present with her three-year-old husband, Jack Brooksbank, who named their son Philip in February.

PRINCE EDWARD AND FAMILY

Finally, Elizabeth and Philip’s fourth and youngest child, Prince Edward, will be present with his wife, Countess Sophie, and their two children, Louise, 17, and James, 13.

Sophie was especially excited when she visited her mother-in-law the day after Philip’s death, tearfully telling reporters, “The queen was amazing.”

Who will take the remaining ten seats?

THE EXTENDED ROYAL FAMILY

The son of Queen Margaret’s sister, David Linley, Second Earl of Snowden, 59, the Queen’s favorite nephew, received one of the remaining seats.

So does her beloved niece, Lady Sarah Chato, 54, who is Margaret’s daughter. She will be present with her husband Daniel.

At the bottom of the list are three of the Queen’s first cousins, Prince Richard, Prince Edward and Princess Alexandra.

The list is completed by three German relatives of Philip – Prince Bernhard, Prince Donat and Prince Philip.

Finally, a close friend of Philip’s, Penelope Eastwood, Countess of Mountbatten of Burma, will attend.
