ANNOUNCED!!! Prince Philip's funeral guest list in full

More of a family thingy!
The 30 guests at Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday have been revealed and include his 'daredevil' best female friend from Sandringham, his grandchildren's spouses and his German relatives, but not Sarah Ferguson, who the Duke famously branded 'beyond the pale'. 
Buckingham Palace said the Queen faced 'some very difficult' decisions as she selected the small group permitted under Covid-19 rules, from the original 800-strong congregation, and had tried to ensure all branches of the duke's family were there. The 67-year-old Countess of Mountbatten - Penelope 'Penny' Knatchbull, previously known as Lady Romsey and later Lady Brabourne - will join the monarch, the Queen and Philip's four children and eight grandchildren and their respective spouses at the service in St George's Chapel on Saturday. 
These include Jack Brooksbank, the husband of Eugenie, daughter of the duchess and the Duke of York, and Beatrice's husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. 
Three German relatives - whose ancestors were denied a place at Princess Elizabeth and Philip's wedding because of anti-German feeling after the second war - have been included. Countess Mountbatten is the wife of Earl Mountbatten, Norton Knatchbull - the grandson of Philip's beloved uncle the 1st Earl Mountbatten, who was murdered by the IRA in 1979. 
He and Penny were often pictured together at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, sometimes riding mini motorcycles around the carriage driving course. 
She was a regular visitor at the duke's Wood Farm cottage at Sandringham after his retirement.
