Ordinarily the Queen would have been seated closely with members of her family, but the royals were socially distanced at the service inside St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday. The monarch, 94, sat in the second row at the service, two seats away from her second son, the Duke of York and opposite her heir, the Prince of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall. Two rows down from the Duke of York were the Princess Royal and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, and then the Duke of Sussex at the end of the row. It was first time Prince Harry has been pictured with the royal family since he and Meghan made the decision to step back from royal duties in March 2020. The Duchess of Sussex was advised not to travel to the UK by her doctor due to the advanced stage of her pregnancy. HELLO! understands Meghan watched the service on television from the US. Sitting opposite Harry was his older brother and his wife, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn seated in between William and Kate, and Charles and Camilla. The rest of the Duke’s grandchildren and their spouses were seated on the back row, including Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, followed by Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, then Mike and Zara Tindall and then Peter Phillips.
