Prince Harry has already arrived in London from the U.S., but Meghan Markle did not join him on the trip. The Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with the couple's second child and expecting to give birth in the summer, had been advised by doctors not to travel, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson announced on April 10.

At the time, a source close to Meghan told E! News exclusively that she wishes she could join to support her husband. "She would have put all the family tension aside to be there with Harry," the insider shared, adding that the couple "are still not on amazing terms with the family."

Additionally, Prime Minster Boris Johnson had previously announced he would not attend in order to give more family members the opportunity to pay their respects. 

"The prime minister has throughout wanted to act in accordance with what is best for the royal household, and so to allow for as many family members as possible, will not be attending the funeral on Saturday," read a previous statement from his office.

During the funeral, the family members will not wear military uniforms, per British media reports. Afterward, Prince Philip, who will not have a state funeral and will not lie in state as tradition dictates, will reportedly be laid to rest in Frogmore Gardens at Windsor Castle. 

On April 13, Queen Elizabeth II returned to her royal duties for an official event, four days after her husband of 73 years passed away following recent surgery for a pre-existing heart condition. Buckingham Palace staff is expected to observe an eight-day mourning period.
