The 15 guests invited to Prince Philip’s wake under Covid restrictions



Only 15 people will be allowed to attend the wake for Prince Philip due to coronavirus restrictions.

The funeral at at St George’s Chapel in Windsor was cut to just 30 guests because of the pandemic, rather than the 800 that would have attended.

Other restrictions have seen all the royal guests wearing face masks, and no-one except the choir is allowed to sing the hymns and songs chosen by the Duke of Edinburgh.

The restrictions will continue into the wake where those closest to the duke will continue to say goodbye.

The list of 15 guests at the wake is thought to include The Queen, married to the duke for 73 years.

Also on the list is his son Prince Charles and wife Camilla, and grandson’s William and Harry with wives Kate and Meghan.

The Princess Royal is also thought to be attending with her children Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall.

Also included are The Duke of York and his children Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, and The Earl of Wessex and The Countess of Wessex.

Princess Alexandra, 84, the Queen’s first cousin, who has devoted decades of her life to royal duty and charity work, is also understood to have been invited.

The televised funeral service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday saw Harry and William reunited for the first time since their fallout after the Oprah interview.

The funeral service is being conducted by the Dean of Windsor.
