Queen Elizabeth sat alone during her husband Prince Philip‘s funeral on Saturday. The emotional, but intimate funeral was held at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, with 30 attendees celebrating the life of the 99-year-old.
All eyes were on Philip’s estranged grandsons, Princes William and Harry, who saw each other for the first time since Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped away from their senior royal roles, and shared an explosive discussion with Oprah Winfrey, in which Harry alluded to his estrangement from William, and accused royals of racist behavior.
The Queen, who was married to Philip for 74 years, was at the center of the funeral, which was muted and didn’t include singing among congregants, due to health restrictions stemming from the pandemic. Members of the congregation sat six feet apart and wore masks. She placed a handwritten note on top of his funeral, which she signed Lilibet, a nickname she was given as a child. Philip was the last person alive who called her that name, according to reports.
