Just when the world seemed to be glued onto their screens as they mourned the passing away of the longest-serving British consort -- Prince Philip, a woman in the buff reportedly wreaked up inconvenience outside the boundaries of the St. George’s chapel. The topless lady in question reportedly ran onto the road outside the Chapel and yelled “Save The Planet” while the mourners at the deceased royal’s service observed a moment of silence.

Onlookers believe the lady also attempted to climb up the statue of Queen Victoria that was placed right outside the Chapel before she was whisked away by cops. The Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral entailed many historic firsts—the doing away of uniforms for mourners, the return of Prince Harry to the UK (albeit for a brief visit), the consort being laid on his specially designed Land Rover.

The service also served as an opportune moment for Prince William and Prince Harry to engage in an amicable conversation after more than a year of reported animosity. Meghan Markle, who was keen on being part of the funeral, couldn’t make it to the UK and was reportedly concerned about her husband having to face his family all by himself after almost a year.

Onlookers were delighted to spot William and Harry exchange words of warmth, and let bygones be bygones—even if it was momentary.

“They know it is not about them on Saturday – it is about honoring their grandfather’s memory and supporting their grandmother,” a royal source told the Daily Telegraph, as cited on Page Six. “I would be extremely surprised if that wasn’t front and center of both their minds. They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once."

The Dukes however did not walk beside each other at the procession. It has been alleged that Queen Elizabeth rolled out the last-minute rule—of banning military uniforms and opting for suits in darker hues for all—in a bid to save Harry and Prince Andrew of public humiliation. The strictly ‘30 only’ guests were invited to the service that was carried out in accordance with guidelines, and the Duke’s preferences.
