According to Palace sources, Penelope Knatchbull could not miss the funeral of her good friend.

They were 30 years apart in age and yet they made very good company. Countess Mountbatten as Penelope Knatchbull (formerly known as Lady Penny Romsey) and the Duke of Edinburgh were very good friends, to the point that some tabloids once wanted them to have an affair.

The only thing that is certain is that, according to the Palace, the funeral could not have taken place without her on the guest list, even if it had been written separately for her that she would be presented by her sick husband.
