Prince Harry & William to stand together beside Queen's coffin as they grieve with Royals at solemn Westminster funeral | The Sun

September 15, 2022

PRINCES William and Harry will stand together behind the Queen's coffin at her funeral on Monday, it was revealed today.

The brothers are set to show another display of unity as they mourn their grandmother, while their wives Kate and Meghan will follow in a car.



Yesterday, they stood side-by-side as they followed the late monarch from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall in a haunting echo of their mother Diana's funeral in 1997.

And they will unite in similarly solemn scenes for the state funeral on September 19.

Following the service, a procession will be led by more than 200 musicians as members of the military line the route.

Royals will follow the gun carriage carrying Her Majesty's coffin in the same formation as yesterday, with Wills and Harry putting on another united front in the sombre march.

It contrasts to the cortege at Prince Philip's funeral last year when Harry and William were separated by cousin Peter Phillips.

Next week, the Queen's grandsons will follow their father King Charles, who will lead Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward to Wellington Arch from Westminster Abbey.

Meghan, Kate, Sophie Wessex and other royals will follow by car.

It comes as…

  • Harry and Meghan are 'furious' Archie and Lilibet won't get HRH status – but will be Prince and Princess
  • A royal guard collapsed on duty next to the Queen's coffin
  • King Charles has travelled to Highgrove for a day of contemplation
  • The monarch led his family on a sombre procession as the Queen's coffin was taken to lie in state
  • Heartbroken Brits have been queuing for hours to visit Her Majesty's coffin

The funeral, conducted by the Dean of Westminster, will begin at 11am.

Following several lessons and a sermon by the Archbishop of Canterbury, there will be a two-minute silence, observed nationwide.

The national anthem will follow, bringing the service to an end at midday.

The Queen’s committal service will take place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, at 4pm on Monday.

She will then be buried with the Duke of Edinburgh in a private service at 7.30pm.
