King Charles made last-minute changes to the Queen’s funeral procession so the crowd could see it better, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Long-standing plans, drafted by Buckingham Palace and announced publicly four days before the state funeral, said horses would be ridden behind the Queen’s coffin as it was drawn to Wellington Arch after the funeral service.

King Charles and his three siblings – the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex – had planned to follow the horses on foot.

But at the king’s request, plans were shelved for the horses to go ahead of the royal party, with some of the animals being moved further back in the procession.

A source said: “In the days leading up to the funeral, Charles felt that he would not be properly seen and that he should either be on horseback or, if he walked, the horses should go further back.

“There was also the question ‘Would the new king end up having to handle horse manure?’ which obviously wouldn’t be appropriate.’
