Prince Harry and Prince William will not be walking next to each during the procession of their grandfather, Prince Philip’s, funeral on April 17, according to a new report.
Prince Harry and Prince William will not walk side-by-side as they join the Royal Family for the procession at their grandfather, Prince Philip‘s, funeral on April 17, per AP. The decision was seemingly made to minimize “any awkward moments” between the brothers, whose relationship has been strained since Harry’s tell-all interview with wife Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey in early March. Instead, the brothers’ cousin, Peter Phillips, will walk between the two royals as they follow their grandfather’s coffin to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
“We’re not going to be drawn into those perceptions of drama or anything like that,” a palace spokesman said, per AP. “This is a funeral and the arrangements have been agreed and they represent Her Majesty’s wishes.” Princes William and Harry will be among the 15-member procession, led by their father, Prince Charles.
