Buckingham Palace has confirmed the 30 guests who will be attending Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday April 17.

The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral will take place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, with a condensed guest list in line with the government's current Covid-19 guidelines. There will also be a national minute's silence at 3pm across the UK.

All of the Queen's children and grandchildren will be in attendance, as well as relatives from Prince Philip's side of the family. 

Prince Harry has flown back to the UK for the occasion, although his wife, Meghan Markle, has stayed in the USA as she is heavily pregnant with the couple's second child, due in the summer. The Cambridge children will also not be present as they are deemed too young.
