This Monday, September 19 takes place the national funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey. If Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be present with their parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, the little Prince Louis should not be seen.
Historic day this Monday 19 September in the United Kingdom. The national funeral of Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at the age of 96, is taking place in Westminster Abbey in London. Hundreds of heads of state and crowned heads are present for the occasion. The entire Royal family will also be in the front line for a final farewell to the monarch. Charles III will be accompanied by his wife Camilla, the new Queen Consort, along with Princess Anne and her husband, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward and his wife Sophie of Wessex. The Queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also be present.
If Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, heir to the throne, will be present with their two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the youngest, Prince Louis will stay at home, as reported by our source. Indeed, the four-year-old boy, who delighted the public with his antics on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Queen’s last jubilee, is considered too young to attend the ceremony. In tender confessions, just after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, he had confided with tenderness to his mother: “at least grandma is with grandpa now”.
Death of Elizabeth II: burial in Windsor
In Westminster Abbey, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, aged nine and seven, will follow their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, walking side by side behind the coffin. They will be followed by their aunt and uncle, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who will be without their children, Lilibet and Archie. The two young royals will also travel to Windsor in the afternoon to attend the funeral service, which will then take place in St. George’s Chapel.
