British royal family It is reported that 30 invited guests will attend the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, on Saturday. The list is limited due to COWID restrictions and consists primarily of privileged family members.
Not among them are Sarah Ferguson, whom Duke once referred to as beyond good and evil, and Meghan Markle, who gave Oprah Winfrey her complaints against the royal family in March.
Initially, some 800 people were on the list, including foreign dignitaries and heads of state.
