Emotional Prince William and Harry leave royal family fans ‘sobbing’ – Plymouth Live

William Fans of the royal family were left ‘sobbing’ at Prince William and Harry’s role in the Queen’s funeral. The late Elizabeth II was remembered in a touching state funeral service at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19.

King Charles III, the Princes Royal, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward walked behind her coffin as it was taken to the service. They were joined by William and Harry, who famously followed the coffin of their mother, the late Princess Diana, at her funeral in 1997.

The brothers looked incredibly sombre as they walked alongside Prince George, with their wives, Kate and Meghan following behind. As viewers from across the globe tuned in to bid a final farewell to Queen Elizabeth – who passed away at the age of 96 – they took to Twitter to share their heartbreak over seeing William and Harry in such emotional pain.

“Sobbing my eyes out. Not so much that the Queen has passed away. I loved her, but she was 96 and had such a wonderful life. But at William and Harry, who are having to do this all over again. It must be so triggering,” one Royal fan tweeted.

“So sad to see William and Harry looking so so upset,” another echoed. “This all just brings me back to Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997. Those boys have the exact same look on their faces. I feel for them so much,” someone else wrote.

While a fourth Royal fan added: “Their mum would be so proud of them. Little George is the image of his dad. Hopefully this will be the last bit of sadness in this little boy’s life for a while.”

The Queen’s State Funeral started at 11am, conducted by the Dean of Westminster. At midday, the national anthem and a lament played by the Queen’s piper brought the service to an end.

Senior royals including Charles’ sons the Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex, as well as siblings Princess Royal, Duke of York, marched behind his mother while being moved from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey.

Around 2,000 world leaders are in attendance at the service after which a two-minute silence will be held. The national anthem will then be played to signal the closing of the service.

Following this morning’s service at Westminster Abbey, the Queen will then be transferred to Windsor Castle where the late monarch will be laid to rest alongside her beloved husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, in King George VI’s chapel.
