As a non-working member of the royal family, former British Army soldier Harry was not in his military attire for the late Queen’s royal procession earlier this week. Other grandchildren will be in coats and dark formal attire. According to the palace, Prince William will stand at the head of the coffin and Prince Harry will stand at the feet of the Queen. Cousins Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips will be present along with William on this occasion.

Prince Edward’s children, Lady Louise and Viscount Severn, will stand near the middle of the coffin. Earlier, Maharaja Charles III, along with his three siblings – the Princess Royal Anne, the Duke of York Andrew, and the Earl of Wessex Edward – will be at the Queen’s coffin in the Laing-in-State on Friday evening.
