Eight of Queen’s grandchildren to stand vigil beside coffin


Eight of the Queen’s grandchildren will stand vigil beside her coffin in Westminster Hall for 15 minutes on Saturday night, royal sources have confirmed.

Prince William, the Prince of Wales, will stand at the head of the coffin, with Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, at the foot. At the King’s request, they will both be in uniform. The other grandchildren will be in morning suits and dark formal dresses with decorations.

William will be flanked by his cousins Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, the children of the Princess Royal, while Harry will be with the Duke of York’s daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

The Earl of Wessex’s children, Lady Louise and Viscount Severn, will stand near the middle of their grandmother’s coffin.

The grandchildren, at the King’s invitation, are said to be keen to pay their respects – just as their parents are doing on Friday evening
