The 30 guests attending Prince Philip’s funeral have been announced

Buckingham Palace has revealed the 30 guests who will be attending Prince Philip’s funeral at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday.

Coronavirus restrictions meant the ceremony has had to be scaled down, with only 30 guests allowed in contrast with the estimated 800 originally planned to attend.

The shortened guest list includes many of the Duke of Edinburgh‘s closest relatives but his great-grandchildren – including Princess Charlotte and Prince George – will not be there as they were likely thought too young for the televised proceedings.

Watch and follow live coverage of Prince Philip's funeral service on Sky News from 12.30pm on Saturday.

The funeral will take place on Saturday at 3pm following the duke’s death last Friday and will be preceded by a national one-minute silence.

Those leading the procession include Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

Here is the full list of all the attendees:

The Queen

Her Majesty and Prince Philip

His partner of more than 70 years, there was no doubt the Queen would attend the funeral.

She had famously once described him as her “strength and stay” and many have commented on the closeness of their relationship and the special bond they shared.

The prince paid tribute to his “dear Papa” at the weekend, saying he was a “very special person”.

The Princess Royal was extremely close to her father and had shared a love of sailing with him.

Following his death, she shared a moving statement saying she was not ready for his passing and described him as “my teacher, my supporter and my critic”.

She will be joined at the funeral by her husband Sir Timothy Laurence, a retired Royal Navy officer.

Prince Andrew

Although he has largely stepped out of the spotlight, the Duke of York did speak to reporters following his father’s death.

He said the Queen had described the loss as leaving a “huge void” in her life.

Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex

The Queen and Prince Philip’s youngest son Edward will eventually inherit the title of the Duke of Edinburgh under plans first announced in 1999.

Joining his family members in paying tribute, the Earl of Wessex said his father had the “unique ability to make a lasting impression in a remarkably short time”.

“I, like all my family, have a lifetime of lasting impressions, inspiration, shared passions and love,” he said.

His wife, Sophie, has shared a close relationship with the Queen and tearfully told Sky News outside Windsor Castle that the monarch has “been amazing” since Prince Philip’s death.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge

William and Kate will travel more than 1,000 miles on their train journey around the UK

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will also be in attendance, although they will travel separately.

Prince William, the future heir, will be part of the procession bringing the duke’s body to St George’s Chapel.

His wife, Kate, will depart from Windsor Castle.

The Duke of Sussex has already travelled to the UK from his home in California and is in quarantine ahead of the funeral.

He is able to attend due to a loophole in the travel restrictions which mean foreign arrivals can break their self-isolation to attend the funeral of a close family member.

It’s the first time he has returned to the UK since Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which they made allegations about their treatment by members of the Royal Family.

Harry’s pregnant wife Meghan has not flown over for the funeral on the medical advice of her doctor.

Peter Phillips

He is Princess Anne’s oldest child, and his father is Anne’s first husband, Captain Mark Phillips.

As Captain Phillips did not have a royal title, Mr Phillips was not given a royal title at birth.

He has largely been under the radar although has a very close relationship with the Queen.

Zara and Mike Tindall

The princess is Prince Andrew’s oldest daughter.

In an interview in 2016 for ITV documentary Our Queen At Ninety, Princess Beatrice had become emotional as she described the “magical moments” she had had with her grandfather, Prince Philip.

She will be joined at the funeral by her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who she married last year.

The younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Eugenie will be at the proceedings alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank.

In a heartfelt tribute to her grandfather on Instagram, Princess Eugenie said he had taught her “how to cook, how to paint, what to read” and she would also remember him fondly for his sense of humour.

“I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day,” she wrote.

She added that she will look after “Granny” for him.

The Queen, who decided the guestlist for the funeral, will likely have wanted her sister’s children there as a source of comfort.

He is among three of the duke’s German relatives who were reportedly flown to the UK over the weekend and are isolating at a home in Ascot, according to The Mirror.

Prince Philip himself was German through his mother’s side and this part of his family was always close to the duke’s heart.
