The palace source has confirmed that only 30 people will be allowed to attend the funeral because of COVID-19 protocols, though it is not known if guests will be required to wear masks.

The public is being asked to stay at home and not show up at Windsor Castle.

The funeral will begin at 3pm in England, which is 10am New York time.

A source has explained why Meghan Markle will not be attending, even though Prince Harry will be traveling to England to attend.
