Queen Elizabeths State Funeral: Kate Middletons Parents Spotted Among Attendees

Along with Queen Consort Camilla’s Son, Carole and Michael Middleton were among the A-list guests attending the royal ceremony to bid final respect to the late monarch.

AceShowbizPrince William‘s parents-in-law Carole and Michael Middleton were among the guests attending Queen Elizabeth‘s funeral. Two hours before the service was due to begin, the parents of Catherine, Princess of Wales, arrived at Westminster Abbey at around 9am on Monday (19.09.22) with other VIP guests.

Tom Parker Bowles, the son of Queen Consort Camilla, soon followed. After meeting at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the trio were all among VIP guests travelling by coach through central London to the venue.

A number of British politicians, past and present, were also among the first arrivals, including Ben Wallace, Nadhim Zahawi, and Jacob Rees-Mogg. Meanwhile, celebrities at the funeral included TV adventurer Bear Grylls.

Doors to Westminster Abbey were opened shortly after 8am and around 2,000 people were expected to attend the service alongside the British royal family, including King Charles and the Prince and Princess of Wales, who were joined by their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The couple’s youngest child, four-year-old son Prince Louis, was not among the attendees.

The opening of the Abbey’s doors came 90 minutes after the final members of the public filed past the Queen’s coffin lying in state at Westminster Hall ahead of the funeral.

Hundreds of thousands of people queued throughout the week to pay their final respects to the late monarch – who died on September 8 at the age of 96 following a 70 year reign – and the lying in state came to an end at 6.30am on Monday (19.09.22).

The Queen’s state funeral took place at Westminster Abbey in London at 11am on Monday with a committal service taking place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor at 4pm and she will then be buried with the Duke of Edinburgh – who passed away in April 2021 aged 99 – in a private ceremony at 7.30pm.
