Vigil by Queen’s grandchildren beginsThe Queen’s eight grandchildren are to take part in a vigil, keeping watch over her coffin in Westminster Hall shortly.
King Charles’ children, princes William and Harry, will be joined by Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, and Lady Louise and Viscount Severn, whose father is Prince Edward. Viscount Severn is just 14 years old.
The Prince of Wales and Harry will be allowed to wear military uniform. The King’s younger son was not originally going to be allowed to wear it, but an intervention meant he now has permission.
