Royal Family LIVE: Philip used final weeks to prepare Charles - Held ‘heartfelt' talks

  Royal Family LIVE: Philip used final weeks to prepare Charles - Held ‘heartfelt' talks PRINCE PHILIP used the final weeks of his life to prepare his son for not only his passing but the new role he will now take up.A source told the Daily Mirror: "The Duke was doing everything he could to get out of hospital but he summoned his son to have a discussion that was both full and frank, yet heartfelt - and, truth be told, neither of them were sure it would not be their last meeting.

Meghan, who is pregnant, did not travel after medical advice.

The funeral is the first time Harry has been seen publicly with the Windsors since the couple’s controversial interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey last month.

During the bombshell discussion, he and Meghan accused an unnamed royal of making racist remarks about their son Archie’s skin tone before he was born, and the institution of failing to support Meghan.

In the days after Philip’s death, senior figures such as former prime minister Sir John Major and Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, said they hoped the brothers’ shared grief would be an opportunity to ease tensions and reconcile.

Harry was 10 seats away from his grandmother, who was also sitting alone at the front of the quire, nearest the altar.

Sitting apart from her children in St George’s Chapel, the Queen cut a solitary figure as she said goodbye to her beloved husband of 73 years.

Although surrounded by her closest family, she was seated in a socially-distanced way in adherence to the rules of the coronavirus pandemic.

Closest, two seats to her left, was the Duke of York – the Queen and Philip’s third child.

  Meghan Markle would've 'put family tensions aside' to support Harry at Prince Philip's funeral The way a toilet works is a mystery to most people. But like many mysteries, a closer examination may reveal that the toilet isn’t really very mysterious at all. In fact, this device is ingeniously simple in both design and function. Mostly likely, you’ll be dealing with a gravity-fed toilet—and luckily, nearly all of your problems can be traced to three parts: the fill valve, the flapper, and the tank lever. Familiarize yourself with this trio of hardworking parts and you’ll be able to fix most toilet failures without calling a plumber.

Directly opposite the Queen sat the Prince of Wales, alongside his wife the Duchess of Cornwall.

Two seats down from Charles and Camilla was the Wessex family.

The Countess of Wessex sat with her two children, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor and Viscount Severn, and her husband, the Queen and Philip’s youngest son, the Earl of Wessex.

Two seats to their right was Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Two seats down was Bernhard, Hereditary Prince of Baden, the grandson of Philip’s second sister Theodora.

Two rows in front was Prince Philipp of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, the grandson of the duke’s elder sister, Princess Margarita.

Opposite was Prince Donatus, Landgrave of Hesse, head of the house of Hesse, into which Philip’s younger sisters Cecile and Sophie married.

Two rows behind Prince Donatus was Countess Mountbatten. Her husband, the Earl Mountbatten of Burma, is unwell and was unable to attend so the countess was present as his representative.
