The 15 guests invited to Prince Philip's wake under Covid restrictions

Due to coronavirus restrictions, only 15 people are allowed to attend the wake for Prince Philip.

The funeral at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor was reduced to just 30 guests because of the pandemic, not the 800 who would have attended.

Other restrictions have resulted in all royal guests wearing face masks and no one except the choir is allowed to sing the hymns and songs chosen by the Duke of Edinburgh.

The restrictions will continue where those closest to the Duke will continue to say goodbye.

The Queen, who has been married to the Duke for 73 years, is said to be on the list of 15 guests.

Also on the list are his son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, as well as grandsons William and Harry with their wives Kate and Meghan.

The Princess Royal is also said to be in attendance with her children Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall.

Also included are the Duke of York and his children Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, as well as the Count of Wessex and Countess of Wessex.

Princess Alexandra, 84, the Queen’s first cousin, who devoted decades of her life to royal duty and charity work, is also said to have been invited.

At the televised memorial service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday, Harry and William reunited for the first time since their fallout following the Oprah interview.

The funeral will be carried out by the Dean of Windsor.
