Prince Philip's funeral guest list revealed


The list of 30 guests who plan to attend Prince Philip’s funeral this Saturday has been revealed.

A ceremonial royal funeral for the late Duke of Edinburgh is scheduled to take place on April 17 at Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace announced earlier this week. Philip died at the age of 99 on Friday April 9. He was married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years.

Prince Harry, who stepped down from royal duties last year and now lives in California, has previously traveled to the UK to attend the service along with other royals. His wife, Meghan Markle, who is pregnant, has been advised by her doctor not to attend.

The funeral is scheduled to take place at Windsor Castle on Saturday, with attendance limited to 30 due to coronavirus restrictions.

THE SENIOR ROYALS WILL NOT WEAR MILITARY UNIFORMS AT PRINCE PHILIP’S FUNERAL TO AVOID POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS SITUATIONS

On Thursday, it was revealed that members of the royal family are required to wear civilian clothes at funerals, defusing potential tensions over who would be allowed to wear military uniforms.

Queen Elizabeth II’s decision means Prince Harry won’t risk being the only member of the royal family not wearing the uniform at Saturday’s funeral for his grandfather.

Members of the Royal Family often wear uniforms at public events due to their honorary roles in the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. But the Duke of Sussex lost his honorary military titles when he decided to step down from his frontline royal duties last year.

Philip, also known as The Duke of Edinburgh, served in the Royal Navy for 12 years and maintained close ties with the armed forces throughout his life. Military personnel will have an important role to play in paying tribute to him on Saturday despite the attendance limit.
