William and Harry to be kept apart at royal funeral
Reunited in grief but separated by the diplomatic presence of their cousin, the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussexwillwalk together behind the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin at his funeral. The brothers will be among nine members of the royal family escorting Prince Philip’s coffin on foot as it is borne on a Land Rover to St George’s Chapel, Windsor, tomorrow. The procession will evoke memories of the brothers, aged 15 and 12, walking behind their mother’s coffin at her funeral in 1997. They will not be side by side, however, but separated by Peter Phillips, the Princess Royal’s son. The brothers’ relationship has not recovered since their awkward encounter at Westminster Abbey a year ago.
