18 Royals that were not invited to Prince Philip’s funeral


18 Royals that were not invited to Prince Philip’s funeral


Hundreds of family members, relatives, and dignitaries were expected to attend Prince Philip’s funeral under the initial arrangements.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and tight attendance restrictions, the service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday will only accommodate 30 people.

Royal ceremonies are normally extravagant and have lengthy guest lists, but not this time.

And, with a few significant exceptions, the complete list of family members and friends attending the small funeral has been published.

All four of the Queen’s children – Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward – will be in attendance. Her grandchildren will be there as well.

The Duchess of Cornwall, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex, were among those who attended Philip’s funeral.


Here are the main individuals who were forced to be left off the mourners’ list.

Great-grandchildren of Prince Philip

The Queen and Philip’s ten great-grandchildren, are all too young to join.

Savannah and Isla Phillips; Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis of Cambridge; Mia, Lena, and Lucas Tindall; Archie Mountbatten-Windsor; and August Brooksbank.

They’re all under the age of ten.


Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife

Sarah Ferguson, the longtime wife of Prince Andrew and mother of Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, has not been invited to the ceremony.

Since her marriage ended, she had a tumultuous relationship with Prince Philip.


The Queen’s first cousin – and spouses of cousins

The absence of one of the Queen’s cousins and his immediate family from the guest list is noteworthy.

Surprisingly, Prince Michael of Kent will not be among the 30 individuals who will attend the funeral.

His wife Princess Michael of Kent, as well as the Duchess of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and the Duke of Gloucester’s spouses, will not be present.

While the move is bound to raise a few eyebrows, it is worth remembering that with such a large extended family, the Queen would have had to cut the list down to 30 people at some point.


The Duchess of Sussex

Meghan has stayed in California while pregnant with her second child after physicians told her not to travel.

Her attendance, though, may have been contentious in light of the comments she made during her Oprah interview.
