Prince William and Prince Harry will not walk side-by-side in the ceremonial procession behind their grandfather Prince Philip's coffin into the church ahead of his funeral on Saturday.

The new details have been released by the Buckingham Palace on Thursday of the funeral program of for Queen Elizabeth II's husband, who died on April 9 at 99.

William and Harry’s cousin Peter Phillips will walk between the brothers as they escort their grandfather’s coffin to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The decision came in the light to minimize the chances of any awkward moments between the brothers.

It will be the brothers' first public appearance since Harry and Meghan's explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Prince Charles, the heir to the throne and the father of the princes, together with his sister, Princess Anne, will lead the 15-member procession.

The brothers had been closely watched as Saturday’s funeral will almost certainly remind the pair of their shared grief at another royal funeral more than two decades ago. As young boys, both walked behind their mother Princess Diana’s coffin in 1997 in London in a ceremony watched around the world, reported British media.
