At the king’s request, Prince Harry also wore the uniform on Saturday, for the first time since 2020, when he abdicated his duties in the monarchy. Since the Queen’s death, Harry has always appeared in public in a civilian suit, despite having served two tours in Afghanistan, the BBC News server wrote.
In addition to Harry and William, Princess Anne’s children Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, Prince Andrew’s daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, and Prince Edward’s two children, Louis and James, took part in the quiet memorial of the coffin on Saturday.
The tradition of the Princes’ Vigil originated in 1936 after the death of King George V on the last death of King George VI. In 1952, this celebration was not held because the king had no offspring, but two daughters.
Friday’s vigil, which has so far been reserved for princes, was attended by Elizabeth’s daughter, Princess Anne. On Saturday, according to the BBC, it was the first time in history that descendants of a deceased member of the royal family attended the vigil.
Queen Elizabeth II. She died on September 8, at the age of 96, in her Scottish country home in Balmoral. The state funeral for Britain’s longest-serving government will take place on Monday.
