LONDON, ENGLAND: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have always supported each other through difficult times and it was evident during the Queen’s funeral that Prince Harry was supporting his wife Meghan Markle to ensure she was comfortable, as was she had supported him.

Lawyer Pranav Bhanot, a guest at the funeral, spoke to PEOPLE after the removal services to describe some of the interactions he observed between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during the state funeral at Westminster Abbey.


Funeral guest Pranav told People, “You saw the assurance Harry gave to Meghan when they walked together and had to go in their different directions.”

He added: “I’ve noticed how much Harry has been supportive of Meghan. As they went their separate directions after the ceremony, he squeezed her hand tightly. I felt like he wanted to make sure she was comfortable.”

While the mother-of-two was in the UK with Prince Harry for a final farewell to the Queen, it was said she became emotional as she joined other members of the royal family for the funeral service on Monday September 19. The Duchess of Sussex was reportedly spotted wiping away tears during the heartbreaking moment while standing alongside Queen consort Camilla, Catherine, Princess of Wales and Prince George and Princess Charlotte, The Daily Mail reported. She ended up sitting in the second row with Harry.

Judy James, a famous TV body language expert, believes Meghan was “comforting” her “distressed” husband during the Queen’s funeral service at Westminster Abbey. Speaking to Fabulous, the body language expert said: “Prince Harry and Meghan exchanged a few words during the service and it seemed like she was comforting him in his grief and distress.” She added that the couple were behind King at the moving service Charles and Queen Consort Camilla were seated, and the Duchess of Sussex “was clearly in tune with him to support him, turning her head in his direction several times when he moved.”

One Twitter user felt bad for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, writing: “I feel bad for the Duke and Duchess you can see the pain they are in.”

Although the nation mourned their beloved Queen for ten days from September 8, from the day of her death until her funeral on Monday September 19, the royal family will mourn for a further seven days. According to Hello, a recent statement from Buckingham Palace read: “It is the wish of His Majesty the King that a period of royal mourning be observed from now until seven days after the Queen’s funeral.” Royal mourning is attended by members of the royal family committed, royal household staff and representatives of the royal household on official duties, and troops subject to ceremonial duties.
