The duchess, who is far along in her pregnancy, was unable to travel to the U.K. on the advice of her physician.
Though she couldn’t be there in person, a spokesperson for Meghan and Prince Harry confirmed to HuffPost that Meghan was watching the funeral from home. She also sent along a handwritten note to accompany a wreath that she and Harry commissioned for the funeral.
Harry and Meghan chose florist and stylist Willow Crossley, whom they’ve worked with before for son Archie’s christening and their wedding reception, to design and make the wreath.
The flowers used for the wreath all signified important times, moments and virtues that Prince Philip held dear.
Included among the flowers, which were locally sourced, were the national flower of Greece, called bear’s breeches; sea holly to represent Philip’s beloved Royal Marines; and roses to mark the Duke of Edinburgh’s birth month of June.
It was pictured in St. George’s Chapel during the funeral service, alongside other family wreaths:
At the funeral, both Harry and Prince William publicly reunited for the first time in over a year.
The two remained at a distance after Harry and Meghan’s royal step back and move to California, and the restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Harry, William and Kate were all seen speaking with each other at the conclusion of the funeral:

Last week, both the brothers released heartfelt statements to remember their grandfather. The Duke of Cambridge called Philip “an extraordinary man” and said that he felt “lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life ― both through good times and the hardest days.”
“He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage,” Harry said. “And while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it!’”
According to a new Strategy Analytics forecast, "Global 5G Business Smartphone Shipment Forecast 2021-2026", 5G business smartphone shipments will grow at a CAGR of 28% over the 2021-2026 forecast period. High positive growth is expected in China, India, Australia, South Korea, UK, France, Germany, and the US, as 5G begins to ramp in these countries in 2021. Worldwide BYOD 5G smartphone shipments will increase by 187% YoY, and corporate-liable shipments will increase by 649% YoY from 2020. Increasing competition in the 5G Android space, particularly from Chinese vendors, will drive downward pressure on ASPs, which are expected to drop 23%, but revenue is expected to increase almost 10-fold from 2020 to 2026.

Dublin, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Polyurethane Microspheres Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The market for Polyurethane Microspheres is expected to grow at a CAGR greater than 4% globally during the forecast period. An increase in demand from the paints and coatings industry is driving the market growth. On the flip side, higher production costs associated with the production of polyurethane microspheres are hindering the growth of the market. Paints & Coatings application is forecasted to dominate the market over the forecast period. Asia-Pacific region is forecasted to dominate the market across the globe with the largest consumption from countries such as China, India, and Japan. Key Market TrendsIncreasing demand from the Paints and Coatings Industry Polyurethane microspheres are widely used in the paints and coatings industry and is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period.The condensation polymerization technique is used for the preparation of polyurethane microspheres of uniform shape and particle size. The particle size distribution may range from 1 to 100 microns.Polyurethane microspheres are used in water and solvent-based topcoat finishing and are produced in transparent to various colors as well as in various sizes. Depending on the effect that is required to achieve and based on the application, different particle sizes and colors of polyurethane microspheres are used.Polyurethane microspheres provide matting efficiency, absence of polishing, scratch resistance, soft touch, no haze, and multi-color effect and provide aesthetic beauty to the surface. Polyurethane microspheres are used in coatings for wood, natural and artificial leather, plastics, vinyl floor and wall decorative coatings.Aesthetics provide natural as well as beauty to modern architecture. The increase in demand for aesthetics in the paints and coatings industry drives the growth of the polyurethane microspheres market. Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market for polyurethane microspheres during the forecast period as a result of the increase in demand from various end-user industries in countries like China, India, and Japan.Polyurethane microspheres are widely used in the paints and coatings industry. The increase in demand for paints and coatings in the building and construction is expected to drive the market.According to the National Development and Reform Commission, China, the Chinese government approved 26 infrastructure projects at an estimated investment of about USD 142 billion in 2019.

The development of smart cities and other schemes like "housing for all" are expected to increase the demand for paints and coatings.Polyurethane microspheres are used as encapsulants in the pharmaceutical, agricultural and automobile industry. Encapsulants help in controlled drug releases and long-term fertilizers benefit from encapsulation due to the slow release of nutrients.The fertilizer consumption in India, during the period 2018-19, stood at around 27.3 million metric tons. With the increase in population and to increase productivity the use of fertilizers is expected to increase during the forecast period. The increase in consumption of fertilizers from the agricultural sector is expected to drive the market for the polyurethane microsphere encapsulants during the forecast period.The aforementioned factors, coupled with government support, are contributing to the increasing demand for polyurethane microspheres market during the forecast period. Competitive LandscapeThe global polyurethane microspheres market is partially fragmented with players accounting for a marginal share of the market. Few companies include Supercolori S.p.A., SANYO CHEMICAL, LTD., MICROCHEM, Chase Corp and HOS-Technik Vertriebs- und Produktions-GmbH.Reasons to Purchase this report: The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format3 months of analyst support Key Topics Covered: 1 INTRODUCTION1.1 Study Assumptions1.2 Scope of the Study2 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY4 MARKET DYNAMICS4.1 Drivers4.1.1 Increasing Demand from Paints and Coatings Industry4.1.2 Other Drivers4.2 Restraints4.2.1 High Production Costs4.2.2 Other Restraints4.3 Industry Value Chain Analysis4.4 Porters Five Forces Analysis4.4.1 Bargaining Power of Suppliers4.4.2 Bargaining Power of Consumers4.4.3 Threat of New Entrants4.4.4 Threat of Substitute Products and Services4.4.5 Degree of Competition5 MARKET SEGMENTATION5.1 Application5.1.1 Encapsulation5.1.2 Paints and Coatings5.1.3 Adhesives5.1.4 Cosmetics5.1.5 Others5.2 Geography5.2.1 Asia-Pacific22.214.171.124 China126.96.36.199 India188.8.131.52 Japan184.108.40.206 South Korea220.127.116.11 Rest of Asia-Pacific5.2.2 North America18.104.22.168 United States22.214.171.124 Canada126.96.36.199 Mexico5.2.3 Europe188.8.131.52 Germany184.108.40.206 United Kingdom220.127.116.11 Italy18.104.22.168 France22.214.171.124 Rest of Europe5.2.4 South America126.96.36.199 Brazil188.8.131.52 Argentina184.108.40.206 Rest of South America5.2.5 Middle-East and Africa220.127.116.11 Saudi Arabia18.104.22.168 South Africa22.214.171.124 Rest of Middle-East and Africa6 COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE6.1 Mergers & Acquisitions, Joint Ventures, Collaborations, and Agreements6.2 Market Share Analysis**6.3 Strategies Adopted by Leading Players6.4 Company Profiles6.4.1 Chase Corp6.4.2 Covestro AG6.4.3 HEYO ENTERPRISES CO., LTD6.4.4 HOS-Technik Vertriebs- und Produktions-GmbH6.4.5 Koehler Innovative Solutions6.4.6 Kolon Industries, Inc.6.4.7 MICROCHEM6.4.8 SANYO CHEMICAL, LTD.6.4.9 Supercolori S.p.A.7 MARKET OPPORTUNITIES AND FUTURE TRENDS7.1 Growing Developments in Bio-Based Polyurethane Microspheres7.2 Other Opportunities For more information about this report visit https://www.researchandmarkets.com/r/2dl3jl CONTACT: CONTACT: ResearchAndMarkets.com Laura Wood, Senior Press Manager email@example.com For E.S.T Office Hours Call 1-917-300-0470 For U.S./CAN Toll Free Call 1-800-526-8630 For GMT Office Hours Call +353-1-416-8900
