The tale of the two princes at Queen Elizabeth’s service, in photos.
All eyes have been on Prince Harry and Prince William this week. The famous brother’s have been navigating a famous rift. Royal watchers have been hoping the Queen’s death would bring them back together. By many accounts, it would appear that has been happening. Well, at least as far as the public eye can see.
Yesterday’s ceremonies were particularly poignant. The two princes escorted the Queen’s coffin with their father, King Charles, and other family members. It was a nearly five mile walk from Buckingham Palace to Westminster. The boys did something similar when their mother, Princess Diana died. The Queen stepped in to help fill that maternal roll for them.
When the Queen’s body arrived at Westminster, there was a service kicking off four days of public visits. People wanting to pay their respects to the Queen have been lining up for days. The queue is unreal. It stretches for more than four miles.
This week has been full of ceremonial events that have brought the brothers and their wives together. The Queen’s actual funeral is Monday.
