William and Harry will not walk shoulder to shoulder when they join senior royals in the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral procession on Saturday.
The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex, whose troubled relationship is well documented, will be separated by cousin Peter Phillips as they walk in a line behind their grandfather’s coffin.
When the coffin is taken into St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, William will move ahead of his brother as the royal family arrives in pairs.
Details of Prince Philip’s funeral released
Details of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral have now been released by Buckingham Palace.
The Queen – like all 30 guests invited to the service – will wear a facemask.
She will sit by herself in the quire of St George’s Chapel, with all mourners following Covid guidelines and remaining socially distanced.
Philip was the guiding force behind his funeral arrangements and, reflecting his life-long association with the Royal Navy, buglers of the Royal Marines will sound Action Stations during the service.
It is played on a warship to signal all hands should go to battle stations and is sometimes featured at funerals of naval men.
A reduced choir of four singers will feature during the service and the guests will follow Covid rules and not sing.

The Queen will be accompanied to her husband’s funeral in the state Bentley by a lady-in-waiting, but will sit alone in St George’s Chapel.
