An expert lip reader has revealed what Prince Harry said to Prince William as the brothers were taking their seats before the Queen‘s committal service.

Jacqui Press, an expert lip reader, spotted the pair in conversation at around 4.20pm as they prepared for the service in St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

The heir-to-the-throne appeared to let Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle go in first to the pew as Prince William stepped aside for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

As Prince William was standing at the entrance to the front pew, Prince Harry asked him: ‘Shall we go through first?’

William saw his brother and said yes with a nod, before telling his wife the Princess of Wales: ‘Let them go through first.’

Kate said ‘OK’ as Harry and Meghan walked past her, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and sat down.

Later in the service Harry shared a sweet moment with his niece Charlotte as he briefly smiled reassuringly at her.

Meanwhile, Prince George shared a glance with his father, who was sitting beside him. 

At the end of the service, the Royal Family stood as the Queen was slowly lowered down into the royal vault while the Dean of Windsor said: ‘Go forth upon thy journey from this world, O Christian soul.’ 

He also offered the commendation – a prayer in which the deceased is entrusted to God’s mercy.

Moments earlier the Dean had placed her crown and other crown jewels on the altar before the Queen’s staff of office was snapped – signifying the severing of the Queen from her service in death.
