The former England rugby player is married to the Queen’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall. He has mentioned tidbits about the royals on his own podcast but today appeared on BBC Breakfast from his home on Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Estate.

He divulged that after the service the family weren’t allowed to stay and support the Queen and were told to, “get in your cars and go home.”
He explained, “Having to see the Queen make a stand in terms of having to show what the world is at the moment and sit on her own and be as brave as she was, I thought just summed up her up as a lady. She was amazing.”
Covid-19 restrictions were behind the guest list is limited to 30 and the Queen sitting on her own. Mike added that “loss is always going to be difficult.”

He continued to set the scene by saying that, “Then the funeral finished and it was ‘Get in your cars and go home, but that is what is allowed, that is what the rules state, so that is what happened.”
“It was tough but I thought the actual funeral was done so well that I think he will be looking down and he would have actually been happier about the way it happened.”
Philip was a notoriously low-maintenance royal who did not want to be fussed over and his funeral reflected his wishes as his coffin traveled on a Land Rover he helped to design.
