Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis represent the future leading members of the Royal Family. Buckingham Palace said the Queen, 94, faced “some very difficult” decisions as she chose which members of her family were permitted to attend her husband’s funeral. She tried to ensure all branches of the Duke’s family were in attendance, but sadly the young Cambridges are missing from the guest list.

Prince Philip’s loved ones will gather to bid their final farewell to the departed Duke of Edinburgh today.

His ceremonial funeral is due to begin at 3pm on Saturday after the Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9.

More than 730 members of the armed forces are due to take part in the event.

But there is a limit of 30 mourners permitted to attend the ceremony at St George’s Chapel.

The Queen faced “some very difficult” decisions as she selected the 30 guests permitted to attend her husband’s funeral.

The guests attending the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral include:

  • The Queen
  • Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall
  • Princess Anne and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence
  • Prince Andrew
  • Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex
  • Prince Harry
  • Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge
  • Zara and Mike Tindall
  • Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
  • Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank
  • Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s oldest son
  • Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor
  • Lady Sarah and Mr Daniel Chatto
  • Earl of Snowdon
  • Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester
  • Duke of Kent
  • Princess Alexandra, the Hon. Lady Ogilvy
  • The Hereditary Prince of Baden
  • The Landgrave of Hesse
  • Prince Philipp of Hohenlohe-Langenburg
  • Countess Mountbatten of Burma

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will not be in attendance at the funeral today.

The guest list includes Prince Philip’s children and grandchildren, however, his great-grandchildren are not on the guest list.

This includes Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Mia Tindall, Lena Tindall, Lucas Tindall and August Brooksbank.

This is most likely due to the young ages of all these children and the strict rules in place regarding attendees to funerals amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, shared a touching image of Prince Philip and Prince George together in Norfolk.

The image featured the pair atop a carriage with the Duke of Edinburgh holding reins and George holding a book.

The caption reads: “My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family.

“I feel lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life – both through good times and the hardest days.

“I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to get to know my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her.

“I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour!

“My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation.

“Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead.

“I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.”

The Royal Family also shared an image featuring the Queen, Prince Philip and their seven eldest great-grandchildren.

The image was captured at Balmoral Castle in 2018.

Where are Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis?

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis typically spend their school holidays at their family’s country home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

The Cambridge family spent most of the lockdown at their country estate.

However, given the ongoing coronavirus restrictions requiring people stay local, it is believed the Cambridge clan remain in London at Kensington Palace.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte both attend St Thomas’s Battersea.

The summer term is due to begin on Tuesday, April 20.

This means the Cambridge family will need to be at their London home in preparation for the summer term to begin next week.
