Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry all walked behind Princess Diana’s coffin on their way to her funeral. The gesture was done even by the young members of the royal family because the Princess of Wales is their mom.

On the online forum site Quora, royal fans are wondering which members of the royal family would be made to walk Queen Elizabeth’s coffin after she passes away. One person said that no one would be made to walk behind Her Majesty’s coffin because the gesture is not meant to be an imposition.

Eileen Wood said that walking behind the monarch’s coffin is both a duty and an honor for her loved ones. As such, it is guaranteed that all four of the Queen’s children will walk behind her coffin. The Queen’s grandchildren will also be part of the ceremony.

“When the Queen passes away, all four of her children will walk behind her funeral cortege. Normally, it’s only the males who do that, but I guarantee you that Princess Anne will insist on doing so. She did when her grandmother, the Queen Mother, passed away,” Wood said.

The royal fan also said that Princess Anne would also take her place at the Vigil of the Princes.

Sallie Smythe, an avid reader of royal biographies, said that that she thinks some of the Queen’s great-grandchildren may also walk behind her coffin depending on their age when she passes away.

“I’m sure the Queen’s 4 children and her adult grandchildren will want to walk behind the Queen’s coffin, joined by living Royal cousins, mostly the Kents and Gloucesters. Her youngest grandchildren - Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, along with some of her great-grandchildren, such as Savannah Phillips, will be given the option, but only if the family considers it to be appropriate,” she said.

But Smythe also said that walking behind a loved one’s coffin may be quite traumatizing especially for young royals. Prince Harry had to go to therapy after he walked behind Princess Diana’s coffin over two decades ago.
