However, Meghan and Harry decided not to have their two kids, Archie and Lilibet, fly from Montecito, California, to be with them for the burial service of their great-grandmother’s

There isn’t a formal restriction prohibiting Archie and Lili from going to a sovereign’s funeral, but the parents get to make that choice simply because they are, at 3 and 1, respectively, years old and are little too young for such event

The aunt and uncle of Archie and Lili, Kate Middleton and Prince William, took a similar decision for their youngest kid.

While Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, attended the burial, it’s important to note that Prince Louis, their younger sibling, did not. Louis isn’t quite old enough for this type of royal occasion at the age of 4. His absence is not shocking because he did not go to Prince Philip’s funeral last year, unlike George and Charlotte.
