Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stand behind Princess Kate and William in emotional service for Queen’s lying in state | The Sun

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry stood behind Kate Middleton and Prince William during the Queen's emotional service for the Queen's lying in state.

The Princess of Wales and Meghan Markle travelled in separate cars from Buckingham Palace.

It's the first time the 'Fab Four' have been seen since they surprised crowds outside Windsor Castle to greet mourners on Saturday.

The Queen's coffin entered Westminster Hall as the choir of Westminster Abbey and the choir of His Majesty's Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, sang Psalm 139.

The Archbishop of Canterbury then read the opening prayer, which the King appeared to follow through an order of service.

Kate, William, Harry and Meghan looked solemn throughout the sorrowful service.

The two wives both donned black veils for the sombre last journey of their grandmother-in-law.

Cries of "God save the King" could be heard as the King and the Queen Consort left the building.

Royal couples left the building side by side, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex holding hands.

On the trip to Westminster Hall, a clearly emotional Camilla looked out at the thousands of mourners who gathered to pay their respects.

It comes as…

  • The list of 500 world leaders and dignitaries attending the funeral has been revealed
  • King Charles was pictured arriving at Buckingham Palace ahead of today's procession
  • The Monarch's staff were left heartbroken after being axed during a church service for the Queen
  • Sophie Wessex is in line for a new title in a touching nod to her friendship with Her Majesty
  • Prince William and Harry will walk behind the Queen’s coffin together today
  • More than 100,000 people have launched a petition for an annual Bank Holiday in honour of Her Majesty

Meanwhile, the new Princess of Wales kept her head bowed to the ground while Meghan looked straight ahead alongside Sophie.

And Prince William and Prince Harry put on a united front, walking alongside each other as they joined the sombre march with their close family.

The Queen’s grandsons followed their father King Charles who led Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

King Charles, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex appeared solemn as they walked behind the coffin.

The procession brought back sad memories of when they walked behind the coffin of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales when the brothers were just 15 and 12.

Harry, who spent a decade in the forces including two tours of duty to Afghanistan, was not in military uniform unlike William, because he is no longer a working royal.

The sun shone as the procession moved onto The Mall in central London and members of the crowd threw yellow roses into the road as the gun carriage passed them.

Now at Westminster, a 20-minute service will take place led by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The doors of Westminster Hall will open at 5pm allowing mourners to pass the Queen's coffin as she lies in state.

Her Majesty was driven into Buckingham Palace for the last time yesterday after she was flown from Edinburgh to London.

She was met at the Palace by the Royals – including Charles, Harry, Meghan, William and Kate.

The Queen remained in the Bow Room overnight before she lies in state from today in Westminster.

Thousands of people are already lining the streets to see the Queen's coffin before she is taken to the Hall.

Up to 400,000 are expected to descend on the capital today to pay their respects.

Some have camped overnight in the rain to be able to pass by the Queen's coffin from 5pm.

It comes as Meghan and Kate joined their husbands outside Buckingham Palace last week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were greeted by cheering crowds as they joined Wills and Princess to pay tribute to the Queen.

After years of speculated rifts, the royals were seen in public together for the first time since 2020.
