Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eldest children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, will be present at the state burial for Queen Elizabeth II on Monday at Westminster Abbey in London.
According to the Palace's announcement of the memorial's official proceedings, the nine-year-old prince and his sister, who is seven, will also accompany Her Majesty's coffin in the “Procession of the Coffin.”
Prince Louis, their youngest son, who is four years old, is conspicuously missing from the list. Archie and Lilibet, the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are not mentioned on the 22 pages of plans for the state funeral.

The committal service, which is set for later today and will take place at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, does not include any mention of the kids. Harry was 12 when they had to walk behind Princess Diana's coffin in September 1997, and William was 15 when his mother passed away. This shared memory has plagued them both ever since. “I don't think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don't think it would happen today,” Prince Harry said during a 2017 interview.

Princess Royal, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, the Duke of York, the Countess of Wessex and Forfar, and the Earl of Wessex and Forfar will all march in the parade with King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are named next in line on the procession, followed by the Prince and Princess of Wales and two of their kids.
The Duke of Gloucester, Prince Michael of Kent, and the Duke of Kent come after the Earl of Snowdon and Mr. Peter Phillips. On Sunday, the day before the late Queen's funeral, the Palace unveiled an official portrait of her. The capture was taken in June during her Platinum Jubilee festivities, marking her 70th year in power.
