A picture of Queen Elizabeth II sitting alone at the funeral of her late husband, Prince Philip, has drawn attention, as COVID-19 restrictions did not allow anyone to be close to her.

Elizabeth and Philip were married for 73 years. Her four children and eight grandchildren were there but were not near her during the funeral.

Family members were allowed to sit with only those in their immediate households as a coronavirus precaution.
