I would imagine even if Philip's Private Secretary hadn't been in HMS Bubble before, he would have been once Philip came out of hospital.

All of that however, doesn't mean that HM will necessarily be sitting with him. We should also remember that the Queen is quite pragmatic about things and I suspect she'll take some comfort from having "HMS Bubble" around her knowing it is more than some people in her position would have.
Only the royal family sit on that side of the church.

For social distancing some might have to move over to the other side but the queen will sit on her own seat. Maybe a family member will sit close by but it will not be a staff member who happens to be in her bubble who sits at the royal side of the church.
You may recall there was a question mark over where Sarah Ferguson would sit at her daughter's wedding as she was no longer a member of the royal family.

Baby’s first staring contest, lol.

I do also admit to favoring the photos of Charles, his father and Camilla. I always favor them in general because I just truly enjoy seeing him with his parents. It’s one reason the cancellation of Braemar is so painful - that gathering always provide the most incredibly joyous, happy photos..

But the other one with the great grand children is also very very precious.
I agree, it is such a special moment.

Oh, I adore that picture of the Queen, Philip and all the (then) great-grandchildren.

It also let's us see that the family do spend time together away from prying eyes. I think at times people think that the family only meet up at trooping of the colour and Christmas .

That's not a tribute to a Royal Duke, or a Prince, of the husband of a Sovereign, it's quite simply a tribute to a grandfather.

Truly beautiful photos. Isla Phillips looks so proud to be holding her baby cousin Lena in the big group shot. No doubt there was an assortment of Phillips, Tindall and Cambridge parents doing their best to get the assorted preschoolers and infants to smile and look at the "birdie."

LOL...I was thinking the exact same thing. Can't you just see Zara and Mike and William and Peter and Autumn all dancing around and making faces while Catherine tries to snap the photo amidst the laughter? What a lovely mental image and such a good reason for those smiles from HM and the DoE.

Tomorrow the guest list will be released, curious to know who will be there (apart from the obvious guests)

It says it was taken in 2018 so that was before he was even born.

True however the photo was taken in 2018 so he was not born yet. Perhaps the Sussexes plan to have a photo of Archie with his great-grandfather they will choose to share.

The Gyles Brandreth book? According to Amazon, it's out on April 27th but is available for pre-order. That's Amazon UK, but I assume it can be pre-ordered on Amazon US as well.

Archie hasn't been to the big Balmoral get together and this one was taken before he was born. At the time it was taken it was a photo of HM an Philip with all their great grandchildren.

Surprised at BBC not announcing coverage yet, obviously they will cover it with plenty of commentary either side so no worries but is odd they are last to announce. Maybe they are waiting for a final run through to know exactly what timings are etc, who knows.

Eugenie's tribute is lovely too, Philip was obviously a superb grandfather.

I am looking on Amazon US and so far it isn't listed for pre-order yet, unless I missed it.

Charles, William and Harry...I don’t think it’s been officially announced, but all reports have indicated as such

I would guess Andrew, Edward and Anne may do as well.
