Prince George, Princess Charlotte Attended Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral Without Prince Louis, Archie, Lilibet
Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, looked somber as they made their way into the chapel where a mass was held for their great-grandmother. But visibly absent were their youngest sibling, Prince Louis, and cousins, Archie and Lilibet.
According to Hello! magazine, the royal family did not ban the three youngest grandchildren of King Charles from paying their respects to their great-grandmother. After all, there is no official rule when it comes to the age of the mourners.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Were The Ones Who Decided That Archie And Lilibet Shouldn’t Attend The Funeral
However, the decision might have been made by Prince William, Middleton, Prince Harry, and Markle. The couples might have felt that their kids were still too young to pay their respects to Her Majesty.
According to Elle, Prince Louis, 4, is not old enough to attend the queen’s funeral. Royal fans might remember that he seemingly acted up during the queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
Prince Harry and Markle’s two children are younger than Prince Louis that’s why they weren’t there. Archie and Lilibet are believed to still be in the United States with their grandmother, Doria Ragland, who is tending after them while their parents are in the United Kingdom.
But even if Archie and Lilibet did not attend the queen’s funeral, the siblings already have fond memories to remember their great-grandmother.

In the letter that Prince Harry wrote to Queen Elizabeth, he briefly touched on his grandmother’s relationship with his kids.
“Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings—from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren. I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Markle were also photographed behind King Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince William, and Middleton inside Windsor Castle. They were seated comfortably beside Prince Harry’s cousin, Princess Beatrice, and the latter’s husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, according to Radar Online.
