Former Spanish King Juan Carlos and his wife Queen Sofia will also attend the ceremony with Felipe and Letizia

With nine children of her own and 42 grandchildren, Queen Victoria sat at the centre of a spiders web of royal connections across Europe.

Her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha had dreamt of a Europe held together by family connections, and Victoria was determined to carry out his wishes.

They married their offspring into royal and noble families across the continent, earning Victoria the nickname the grandmother of Europe.

Eight of their children married into royal houses, starting with Vicky, who wed the Crown Prince of Prussia.

But after Alberts death in 1861, Victoria retreated from public appearances and became known for wearing black and living in mourning.

The Spanish King, who ascended the throne in 2014, will also be among the mourners at Westminster Abbey on Monday. He will be joined by his wife Queen Letizia.

He is related to the Queen on both sides of his family and referred to the monarch as aunt Lilibet.

His mother, Queen Sofia, was a third cousin of the Queen and a first cousin once removed of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Felipes father, Juan Carlos, is a descendant of Queen Victoria. His grandmother, Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, was the daughter of Queen Victorias youngest daughter, Princess Beatrice.

Juan Carlos, 83, who abdicated in 2014 in favour of his son Felipe VI, 53, has been living in Abu Dhabi since summer 2020 after becoming the target of several probes in Spain over his financial dealings.

There were questions over whether he would attend the funeral but he looks set to be among the mourners at Westminster Abbey.

He will be in attendance at the funeral with his wife Queen Sofia.
