Live: Prince Philip's funeral - Brave Queen will sit ALONE & masked during service

4 Просмотры
THE Queen will have to bravely sit on her own during Prince Philip's funeral because of strict coronavirus rules.

The only person who could sit with her during the funeral is expected to be Brigadier Archie Miller-Bakewell, Philip's private secretary.

He is the only other member of the 20-person Windsor Castle Covid bubble - known as 'HMS Bubble' - likely to be at the funeral.

The Earl Peel had overseen arrangements for the Philip's funeral - known as Operation Forth Bridge - before handing responsibility to his successor, former MI5 spy chief Baron Parker, just over a week before the duke died peacefully at Windsor Castle.

And it is understood the Queen will also wear at mask during the funeral so as not to break the strict coronavirus rules.

It comes as the Queen reportedly “understands” why pregnant Meghan Markle hasn’t flown to the UK with her husband Prince Harry to attend Prince Philip’s funeral.

Meghan, 39, stayed behind in the £11 million California mansion she shares with Harry, 36, and their son Archie.

A source told People that both Meghan and Harry “were in contact with the Queen” soon after Philip’s death.
