'Coincidence?': Royal experts react to Meghan Markle's seating at Queen's funeral



‘Coincidence?’: Royal experts react to Meghan Markle’s seating at Queen’s funeral. The Queen’s funeral was not just a display of religious solemnity, a choreographed military and global VIPs, it was also a steady transfer of power. That’s the view of The Daily Mail’s consultant editor Andrew Pierce, who tells our royal talk show Palace Confidential, that the continuity of the hereditary monarchy was an unspoken, but key element to the day. ‘When the Queen is interred in Windsor Castle, the orb’s taken away, the sceptre, the crown, she goes into the ground as almost one of us, a mere mortal,’ he tells our royal talk show Palace Confidential. ‘And when you saw George and his little sister there, you realise that’s the monarchy’s moving on already. You’ve got the King, the Prince of Wales, his heir, and then George and I think it was right to have him there.’
