Transcript for Princes William and Harry to reunite for the 1st time in year at royal funeral
Thanks very much. Let's bring in omid Scobee and Robert Jobson. Robert, let me begin with you. This news that princes William and Harry won't be walking next to each other. I have to say as an outsider I look at it and say why don't you suck it up and walk next to each other? Absolutely, George. Exactly what I would thought to show respect to your grandfather. Peter Phillips, princess Anne's son, oldest grandson actually is an international rugby player. Any problems I'm sure it'll be sorted out. There's going to be no problems. Ultimately this should all be about paying respects to the great man, to prince Philip and suck it in and get on with it, absolutely, George. And mid, I guess this is one sign what have to expect from the reunion. What else are you hearing about what might be happening during, before, during and after the funeral? Well, of course, the buildup to the funeral has seen all of the family come together to really rally around the queen, Harry, of course, in quarantine has been unable to see his family members in person. But we do hear from sources that he'sad conversations with many of his family members, of course, including the queen throughout this time and, you know, this funeral, what we're watching on Saturday is a very short moment of what will be a day of remembrance for the family. They will be united in their grief together. Any issues that existed long before will be put to one side on Saturday. Robert, the grief has to be falling most heavily of course on the queen saying good-bye to her husband of more than 70 years. Well, absolutely, George. She'll be at the back of the procession in a Bentley with a lady-in-waiting and won't be getting out of that car going up- the steps but go around the side to a side knave. You won't see an awful lot of her aside from the official cameras inside that St. George's chapel. It's a moment of great sadness for her but one thing that's charge to the majesty she wants to be in top form for her beloved, strength and stay as she called him. She's with Angela Kelly today, her dresser, but a very close friend, just making sure she looks a million dollars for her duke tomorrow. And, omid, Meghan is pregnant. Will not be there because her doctor advised her not to travel. Do we know if she and Archie will participate remotely or in any way watching the ceremony? Well, George, I'm sure like many of us have even known or experienced dialing in to a funeral service in the past year with the current restrictions and it'll be no different for Meghan in California. She'll no doubt be watching from home. We know that she is supporting Harry in this very difficult week for him but also she'll also be sad because this is also a loss of a family member for her. She grew very close to the queen and prince Philip over the recent years. It was probably her strongest relationship within the family and those relations then get smaller this week so it'll be a sad day for her but we'll see those who aren't present at the funeral showing respects. Floral tributes and wreaths shared from those not attending on the day and I'm sure we can include the Sussex family in that too. Robert, we're going to see prince Andrew. He's not been seen much in public lately but also the royal family breaking with tradition and not wearing military uniforms. What's behind that? Well, I think, George, that was all about protocol. That thing that people say doesn't exist half the time but there was an argument over what admiralty and what uniform someone could wear and I think the queen said, enough, guys, wear your medals and just dress for the great man for the duke of Edinburgh and so that stopped all of that nonsense about who could wear uniforms and who couldn't and just as an aside I think they're sticking very much to these covid rules. My understanding there will be a wake after the ceremony but it won't be for all 30. Can only be 15. 15 people and that's when I think the conversations may well happen between Harry and William. Okay, thank you both very much. Live coverage of the funeral of prince Philip that starts tomorrow at 9:30 eastern.
