Atlanta, US (CNN) – Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex walked behind Prince Philip to St George’s Chapel, separated by their cousin Peter Phillips. They are followed by Princess Anne’s husband, Vice Admiral Tim Lawrence. And all of them were wearing masks.

And inside the chapel, where Prince Philip’s final farewell ceremony. The Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge sat opposite each other.

After the ceremony ended, Prince Harry and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, were seen exchanging words with the Archbishop of Canterbury, then marched and joined Prince William to walk together as the rest of the family left St.George.

The Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle, was absent from her husband’s participation in the funeral due to the circumstances of the pregnancy in the second child.

A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said Meghan was attending the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral from home, after her doctor advised her not to travel to England.

The spokesman added that she “is watching from the house because she was hoping to be able to attend, but her doctor did not allow her to travel at this stage of pregnancy.”

The spokesman also provided details of the military honors worn by the Duke of Sussex at the funeral, saying that he wore the Neck Medal and its star KCVO, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the Golden Jubilee Medal, and the Diamond Jubilee Medal.

This comes as a British government spokesman confirmed, on Saturday, that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will witness the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, from his country residence in Checkers.
