The Duchess of Sussex, and wife of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, who is pregnant with her second child, will not attend on doctor's advice, the palace said.

Markle suffered a miscarriage in July 2020, making her current pregnancy high-risk.

The royal family announced that Prince Philip will not have a State Funeral nor lie in state for the public to pay their respects ahead of his funeral as these were His Royal Highness' wishes.
