Joining them will be Princess Anne, Sir Timothy Laurence, Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips and their respective partners. The Queen’s grandaughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are also expected to be in attendance with their spouses. It seems unlikely that the sister-duo will be joined by their children.

All of the Queen’s family will be in attendance 

Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex will be in attendance as will their children, James Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor.

None of the royal youngsters including, the Wales children, Sussex children or the Tindall children are expected to join their family due to them being too young for the solemn occasion.

Fellow royalty from across the globe have also confirmed their attendance at Her Majesty’s funeral, including European monarchs, King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands and former Queen Beatrix.
