...

I don't see the Private Secretary mentioned?

Hmm not sure Betsy, they were side by side for the Queen Mother's procession, that's all we know and I can't see anyone coming out and saying why or giving more detail. I wonder if that part was decided before the uniforms and maybe it was to break up the direct contrast of William in uniform and Harry not - irrelevant now all will be in civilian dress.

Are they the three eldest grandchildren? Maybe a reason or just numbers.

It was mentioned before that people who are *working* throughout this memorial service, do not count into the 30 people rule.
Maybe the private secretary and the lady in waiting are in fact *working* then and therefore dont count.
Can this be confirmed?

Glad to see that the dukes of Gloucester and Kent, as princess Alexandra, were not unfairly forgotten, as some members suggested.

No Pamela Hicks, which may be due to a few things, but is sad. Which means the only one to represent the Mountbattens is someone very close to Philip, but still an in-law?

And no Private Secretary, as already mentioned.

Yes - and it sounds like they are the only grandchildren walking behind the coffin. They are the only grandsons - apart from James who I can see arriving with his mother and sister rather than the very formal procession.
Seems confirmed (from Rebecca English's twitter)

*The funeral procession includes Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, Peter Phillips, Prince Willliam, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, The Earl of Snowdon plus Philip’s personal protection officer, private secretary, two pages and two valets


I suspect it will be formed up as:

-his 4 children (Charles, Anne, Edward, Andrew)
-his three grandchildren (probably centre of second row) with Tim and Earl Snowndon at either end
-staff

They are the three older grandsons, not grandchildren, as Zara is older than William and Harry.

Nice to see The Dukes of Kent and Gloucester along with Princess Alexandra were not forgotten.

Glad to see all his grand children are attending, although bit sad that James isn't walking with the coffin. He is quite young to be fair. I also think it’s lovely that Tim is walking in the procession as he’s not a blood relative but obviously meant a lot to Philip. Did he walk with the Queen Mother’s procession?

It will be sad to see the Queen sit alone but I’m sure it will be a beautiful ceremony.

But their spouses are forgotten - from the list, I see there was no way to include them.

It haven't read anywhere that James is waking with the coffin?

According to Twitter he is not walking with the coffin; he’s going to arrive with his mum and sister. I imagine it’s because he is quite young or it’s personal choice?

Maybe he wanted to? Not to feel excluded because of the fact of being under age.
He is in fact the same age as his cousin Harry while walking behind his mother's coffin.

Retired military can wear uniforms unless the dresscode requests the guests to appear in "jacquet" (morning coat) or even just in "suit and tie", then also retired officers are expected to appear in civil wear.

We do not know the dresscode yet.

Maybe it was decided that James is too young. He is 13yrs old.

Nice to see all wings of Prince Philips birth family being represented (except the Greek and Danish Royal Houses but with the 30 person limit there simply wasn’t seats for everyone)

Though i must admit i am a bit surprised that UK still does the old school order of procession with only males (apart from Princess Anne) walking behind the coffin... Even Luxembourg had abandoned that by the time of Grand Duke Jean’s funeral....

But i won’t complain anymore now.. I’m sure the service will be very moving and a fitting farewell to the longest serving Prince Consort ever

How about his granddaughters, why are they not also walking behind the coffin?
