Prince William and Harry walked behind their grandmother’s casket during a ceremony that was rich in ritual.

The corpse of the Queen took the journey from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where she lay in State for four days before burial.

Throughout the walk, the two princes followed each other, William wearing military gear and Harry in civilian clothing.

Prince Andrew also took part in the procession, wearing civilian clothing by this time, which was not by choice.

Following the ties between Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein (an American sex offender), Queen Elizabeth stripped him of his royal duties and several Royal benefits.

The monarch, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Crown Jeweler are the only three people with the right to touch the Queen’s crown, which now rests atop her coffin.

When a young Harry and William walked side-by-side during their mom’s funeral, Princess Diana, 25 years ago, the memory had an unmistakable impact on those who saw it.

King Charles also stood in the forefront as everyone walked in lockstep to the Houses of Parliament, where the casket rested, surrounded by mourners.

Additionally, Princess Anne was present at the event. She will take on an even more significant role within the family in the coming years.

Following tradition, the princes and the king’s wives ride along in cars in the procession. Camilla, the Queen Consort, was driving a similar vehicle as Kate, the Princess of Wales.

The Countess of Wessex and Meghan Markle were in another car.

All four royal family members appear to be watching over the casket, including William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan.
