Meghan Markle watching live stream of Prince Philip’s funeral with Archie
Meghan Markle will watch a live stream of Prince Philip’s funeral with her son Archie in her LA home.
The Duchess of Sussex was unable to fly to UK for the service with Prince Harry as she is heavily pregnant.
Sources say she made “every effort” to be there but couldn’t get the sign off from her doctor for the 5,400-mile trip.
But she will follow the event on a video feed, which is the same as the televised version but without the commentary.
A Buckingham Palace has confirmed that loved ones who cannot make it to the funeral will make ‘private arrangement’s to remember the Duke of Edinburgh.
However Harry will be there to say his goodbyes to his grandfather, joining his brother Prince William and other senior members of the family to walk alongside the coffin.
He landed back in the UK on Sunday afternoon, two days after Philip’s death, and was spotted getting off a British Airways flight at London’s Heathrow Airport.
He seen wearing chinos, a jacket and black face mask, and was met by security off the plane before getting into a black Range Rover and being driven away.
The Queen has decided that the brothers will not walk side by side, placing their cousin Peter Phillips between them in the procession.
It’s the first time they have been together since Meghan and Harry’s shocking Oprah Winfrey interview.
Earlier this week Harry paid a moving tribute to his grandfather, and said he will always have a special place in the Sussex family’s hearts.
In a letter posted on the couple’s Archewell website, he wrote: “My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm—and also because you never knew what he might say next.
“He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ‘til the end.
“He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage, and while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it!’
“So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself. You will be sorely missed, but always remembered—by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.
“Per Mare, Per Terram.”
