The Duke of Sussex will be able to attend the funeral of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, despite quarantine restrictions on compassionate grounds.

People arriving in the United Kingdom from the United States are required to isolate for ten full days.

Upon proof of a negative test, this isolation period can be reduced to five days.

However, people are permitted to leave their isolation for the purposes of attending a funeral.

Under government guidelines, a maximum of 30 people can currently attend a funeral.

It is likely the service will be limited to only very close family.

With the Duchess of Sussex being heavily pregnant with her second child, it remains unknown whether she will make the journey across the Atlantic
