Funeral of Elizabeth II: what place will be given to Meghan Markle?

Funeral of Elizabeth II: what place will be given to Meghan Markle?
Funeral of Elizabeth II: what place will be given to Meghan Markle?

After months of tension between Meghan Markle with the royal family, the question of the place given to Prince Harry’s wife during the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II this Monday, September 19, 2022 arises. The protocol of British royalty is very precise and each member has a well-defined place. For the couple formed by Harry and Meghan, who left Great Britain and their royal functions for two years, the situation is not obvious. If Harry will be at his brother’s side, being the youngest son of King Charles III, what about Meghan?

According to DailyMail, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, will be alongside Sophie Wessex in a car following the funeral procession, while King Charles III and other family members walk behind Her Majesty’s coffin. The two women had already found themselves together on September 14 during the journey leading the remains of the sovereign who disappeared at the age of 96 from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall. On Monday, the body of Elizabeth II will cross London, passing through Hyde Park, then rest in Windsor.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is the wife of Prince Edward, the youngest child of Queen Elizabeth II. They are related to Louise Mountbatten-Windsor and James, Viscount Severn. If Archie and Lilibet’s mother does not have the best ties with the royal family, Sophie de Wessex is considered the queen’s second daughter and has often been presented as her great confidante. Princess of Wales Kate will be in another car with Queen Consort Camilla.

Another point that raised questions about the Sussex couple: Harry’s outfit. The prince who has just celebrated his 38th birthday in full mourning will not wear his military uniform because he gave up his royal duties two years ago. However, according to Hello Magazine, the 30-year-old will be able to wear his military clothes during a ceremony in Westminster on Saturday 17, alongside all his first cousins ​​and his brother William. A change that was announced without any pressure being made, Harry simply wishing to honor the memory of his illustrious elder as it should.

Personalities from around the world are expected around the king and his family such as US President Joe Biden. The Queen will then be buried privately in King George VI’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, an annex to the Main Chapel. The coffin of her husband Prince Philip who died last year will be moved there to be by his side.
