The Countess of Mountbatten of Burma was allowed to attend Prince Philip’s funeral. She became the only person outside of the British royal family who was allowed to attend the farewell to the husband of Elizabeth II.
The Queen herself approved the addition of Countess Mountbatten of Burma to the guest list. In this case, the woman is listed as the last. Nevertheless, the very fact of such an inclusion seems surprising. Many note that the Countess once had a suspiciously close relationship with Prince Philip. She was even credited with an affair with the queen’s husband, according to StarHit.
Moreover, she is 26 years younger than the queen’s husband. She does not come from a noble family. The funeral of Prince Philip takes place on April 17.
