Prince William, Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II’s other grandchildren held a vigil at her lying-in-state, as the royal family prepares to bid farewell to the late monarch at her state funeral.

The brothers stood watch for 15 minutes over the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall, where it has been displayed to the public since Wednesday.

They were joined by Princess Anne’s children Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, Prince Andrew’s daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Lady Louise and Viscount Severn, who are the children of Prince Edward.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex were present to support their children as Louise and James are comparatively younger than their cousins.

Harry wore military uniform during the appearance at the request of King Charles III.

As a non-working member of the royal family, he has appeared at other events in a morning suit.
