- Tuesday is the memorial service for Prince Philip
- The Queen's husband passed away in 2021
- These royals paid their last respects
The memorial service for Prince Philip (†99) was held on Tuesday, March 29th, 2022. The Duke of Edinburgh passed away in early April last year and has been sorely missed ever since.
Until the end, it was not clear whether the Queen (95) was fit enough to attend the service, together with Prince Andrew (62) she appeared in the church at the beginning of the service.
For Queen Elizabeth II, it is her first public appearance of the year outside of her palace.
In addition to the Queen, her and Philip's children and their families were in attendance. The royals have opted for black or dark green clothing to match the occasion. Duchess Kate (40) and Prince William (9) left little Prince Louis (3) at home, but George (8) and Charlotte (6) were allowed to attend the memorial service.
European royals pay tribute to Prince Philip
King Willem-Alexander (54) and Queen Máxima (50) of the Netherlands arrived together with Princess Beatrix (84) to pay their respects. Prince Albert II of Monaco (64) attended the service without his wife Charlène (44).
Queen Silvia (78) and King Carl Gustaf (75) of Sweden were also among the guests. Just like King Felipe (54) and Queen Letizia (49) of Spain, Queen Margrethe of Denmark (81) and Queen Mathilde (49) and King Philippe (61) of Belgium.
In addition to the royals, important politicians were also present, for example Prime Minister Boris Johnson (57).
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Missing
It seems the only valuable members of British royalty who were missing, were Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan. However, other European royals like Princess Charlene and Sarah Ferguson were also missing from the service.
Nonetheless, it was a beautiful memorial service for the late Prince Philip. May he rest in peace.
