的 爱丁堡公爵 will be laid to rest at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, and given the stringent 新冠病毒 协议, the queen will be seated alone during the intimate family event, outlets reported Friday, citing a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace.
On Friday afternoon, 摩根, 56, took to Twitter to react to the news.
“The Queen, who has devoted her life to selfless public service, will be forced to sit all alone during the funeral of her husband of 73 年份, due to covid restrictions. How heartbreakingly sad,” Morgan wrote.
然后, on Saturday morning, just hours ahead of the ceremonial royal funeral, Morgan followed up with another tweet in which he says his thoughts are with the queen.
“Thinking of The Queen today as she says goodbye to the love of her life,” Morgan tweeted along with two photos of Philip and Her Majesty gazing into one another’s eyes.
Morgan notoriously left “早安英国” over his critical remarks about 梅根·马克尔 following the Oprah Winfrey interview in March. Morgan’s controversial comments were then supported by Sharon Osbourne on “谈话,” causing an intense on-air spat between Ozzy Osbourne’s wife and co-host Sheryl Underwood. It ended with Osbourne leaving the show for good.
The ceremonial royal funeral is expected to be a low-key send-off to Philip, the longest-serving royal consort in British history. The ceremony, code-named Operation Forth Bridge, was limited to 30 attendees, but the service is one that the Duke of Edinburgh had much participation in planning prior to his passing.
The Queen will be joined by the four children she shared with Prince Philip – Prince Charles, 安妮公主, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward – as well as Charles’s wife Camilla, 康沃尔公爵夫人, Anne’s husband Timothy Laurence and Edward’s wife Sophie, 威塞克斯伯爵夫人.
另外, each of Philip’s eight grandchildren — who include Peter Phillips, 扎拉·廷德尔（Zara Tindall）, 威廉王子, 哈里王子, 比阿特丽斯公主, 欧仁妮公主, Lady Louise and James, 塞文子爵 — will also attend the funeral.
Prince William’s wife, 凯特·米德尔顿; Zara Tindall’s husband, 迈克·廷德尔; Princess Eugenie’s husband, 杰克·布鲁克斯班克, and Princess Beatrice’s husband, 爱德华多·马佩利（Edoardo Mapelli）Mozzi, will also join their royal spouses at the family event.
All funeral attendees will be required to wear face coverings while inside St. George’s Chapel while those who are participating in the funeral procession will not be donning masks until they’ve entered the chapel.
