We Might See Prince George at the Queen’s Funeral Tomorrow in a “Powerful and Symbolic” Gesture


No one is more acutely aware than Prince William of what it feels like to lose a beloved family member as a young boy, with the world watching. William was 15, six years older than nine-year-old Prince George, when he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997, calling walking behind her coffin to Westminster Abbey “one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.”

Neither George nor his younger siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be walking behind their great-grandmother’s coffin this week like William and younger brother Prince Harry once did, but The Mirror reports William and wife Kate Middleton are considering bringing George, their eldest and the heir to the throne, to Her Majesty’s funeral tomorrow. Senior advisors are pushing for George, now second in line to the throne, to be there, telling the new Prince and Princess of Wales it will send a “powerful and symbolic” message.
