The longest-serving royal consort in British history is slated to be held at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Apr. 17, the funeral for Prince Philip.
The guest list has been reduced to thirty due to the still-raging pandemic. In other words, the event will be attended by close family only.
Prince Harry has flown in from California to be in attendance, while his wife Meghan Markle and their son Archie have stayed in the U.S. The former Suits actress will not be able to attend the funeral since she is currently pregnant.
Meghan’s physician has advised her not to fly, according to a royal spokesperson. While the due date for their baby hasn’t been confirmed, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple revealed that they are expecting their baby girl to arrive during the summer.
Meghan Markle may be around 20 weeks pregnant
Details about how far along Meghan is, are still scarce. The couple announced the pregnancy on Valentine’s Day, which according to HITC, may have been around the three-month mark, as this is when most couples usually announce they are expecting.
It has been eight weeks since then, which could bring Meghan to 20 weeks pregnant, or around four months. It is worth mentioning here that the couple hasn’t confirmed anything themselves, and this is all just guesswork.

“Meghan wishes she could have flown to the U.K. to support her husband but has been advised not to due to her pregnancy,” a source close to Meghan told E! News.
Speaking at a recent briefing, a royal spokesperson said, “The Duke of Sussex is planning to attend. The Duchess of Sussex has been advised by her physician not to travel. So the duke will be attending.”
