Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Harry will attend the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, which will be held next Saturday, in a narrow family presence.
A British Royal Palace spokesman said, “We will confirm the guest list on Thursday, but what I can tell people is that the Duke of Sussex is planning to attend.”
As for Megan, Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her second child this summer, her doctor advised her not to travel to the UK from California, where they live, according to CNN.
And Queen Elizabeth agreed to a party adapted from the plan approved by the Duke of Edinburgh years ago, due to Corona restrictions.
The Duke of Edinburgh will be buried in a private funeral at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, or what is known as a “ceremonial royal funeral,” and there will be no presence of the press.
Meanwhile, the office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that he would not attend the funeral of Prince Philip to make room for the largest possible number of members of the royal family under the restrictions of Corona.
The statement said: “Due to the restrictions of the Corona pandemic, only 30 people can attend the funeral of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.”
