Princes William and Harry will walk together in the Queen’s funeral procession, it was revealed tonight – as the brothers continue to put their feud aside out of respect for the late monarch. For the second time in less than a week, the warring brothers and sisters will walk side by side, this time in Monday’s short funeral procession from Westminster Hall to nearby Westminster Abbey. The brothers have, until last week, barely been seen together in public since the Duke of Sussex’s acrimonious departure from frontline royal duties in February 2020. But following the Queen’s death, the siblings appear to have declared a truce, culminating in a walk outside Windsor Castle last week with wives Kate and Meghan. They walked together during Wednesday’s procession of the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall – a stark contrast to Prince Philip’s funeral last April, when the siblings were separated by the eldest child. Princess Anne, Peter Phillips. At Monday’s funeral, the Duke of Sussex will be flanked by his older brother, the new Prince of Wales, and Mr Phillips, as the coffin makes the short journey – led by naval troops pulling a gun carriage . The Queen’s three eldest grandchildren will walk behind King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, who will lead the procession of royals behind the late monarch’s coffin. Behind the grandchildren will be the late monarch’s son-in-law, Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, and her nephew, the Earl of Snowdon. It comes as it was revealed earlier how the Queen’s state funeral will end in a two-minute nationwide silence in a ‘fitting tribute to an extraordinary reign’ before she lies next to her late husband .
