bitchy | Prince Philip’s ‘friend & companion’ Penny Knatchbull will attend his funeral

Published

on

Well, the final list has been approved and sent out. Because of Covid protocols for funerals and public gatherings, the Windsor klan could only have 30 people at Prince Philip’s funeral. The list of 30 has been debated heavily in the British media, so much so that I would guess that people were actually wagering money on who would make the cut. In the end, all of Philip’s children and grandchildren will be there and none of the great-grandchildren will attend. Prince William won’t be able to lay his head on Carole’s lap at the funeral because the Middletons will not be attending. Two of Philip’s “German relations” will attend but we’re not supposed to talk about how his sisters married Nazis. But the most interesting revelation on the list: Penny Knatchbull, Philip’s “companion” and “dear friend” who was mourning “privately” this week.

Prince Philip will be surrounded by his wife of 73 years, four children, eight grandchildren and other close family members and friends at his funeral. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Duke of Edinburgh will be laid to rest at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday surrounded only by close family members and friends. Queen Elizabeth had to “make some difficult decisions” about who could be there keeping with the 30-person limit, a Buckingham Palace spokesman says.

“We are dealing with a family funeral and at its heart it is still a family event,” the spokesman adds. The spokesman did not elaborate on whether Prince Philip was involved in choosing who he wanted to attend his funeral before his death.

Queen Elizabeth will be joined at the funeral by her and Prince Philip’s four children — Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward — along with Charles’s wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Anne’s husband Timothy Laurence and Edward’s wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Philip’s eight grandchildren — Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn — will also attend the funeral.

Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton, Zara Tindall’s husband Mike Tindall, Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank and Princess Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will join their spouses. Other family members of the Queen attending include Princess Margaret’s daughter Lady Sarah and her husband Daniel Chatto, Prince Richard of Gloucester, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra.

Prince Philip will also have some of his German relatives, two great-nephews and a cousin, in attendance: Prince Bernhard, Hereditary Prince of Baden; Prince Donatus, Landgrave of Hesse; and Prince Philipp of Hohenlohe-Langenburg.

Penelope Knatchbull, Countess Mountbatten of Burma, who joined the royal family through her relationship with Norton Knatchbull, 3rd Earl of Mountbatten, will also attend.

The AP Style Guide reminded everyone this week that we’re not supposed to use “mistress” to describe women like Penny. We can call Penny the companion and friend to Philip and say that they enjoyed many carriage rides together and that she was a frequent visitor to Wood Farm when he was in residence over there. Anyway, I’m glad she’ll be there. I’m also surprised that so many spouses made the cut! I didn’t think Jack Brooksbank, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Mike Tindall would attend.

“Jesse Williams is an extraordinary artist and activist,” Vernoff said. “Watching his evolution these past 11 years both on screen and off has been a true gift.

Over the years, the character of Jackson has evolved from being a privileged plastic surgeon to a caring doctor focusing on inequities in health care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This season, Jackson has found closure with other Grey’s Anatomy characters, including his mother, Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) — and in Thursday’s episode, with his ex-wife April, played by Sarah Drew, who left the show in 2018.

The pressure is on as a determined Bailey tackles her first day as Chief; meanwhile, April’s marriage is in jeopardy and she finds herself unable to address her problems; Meredith struggles to juggle all her responsibilities and Amelia works to define her relationship with Owen, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1 (8:00–9:00 p.m., ET) on the Walt Disney Television via Getty Images Television Network.

In a statement, Williams said: “I will forever be grateful for the boundless opportunities provided me by Shonda, the network, studio, fellow castmates, our incredible crew, Krista, Ellen, and Debbie. As an actor, director and person, I have been obscenely lucky to learn so much from so many and I thank our beautiful fans, who breathe so much energy and appreciation into our shared worlds.

“The experience and endurance born of creating nearly 300 hours of leading global television is a gift I’ll carry always. I am immensely proud of our work, our impact and to be moving forward with so many tools, opportunities, allies and dear friends.”

The news that Williams is leaving Grey’s Anatomy was first reported by Deadline.
