Josh Duggar resurfaced on Monday for the attendance of his Grandma Mary’s funeral – and RadarOnline.com has learned that the disgraced reality star played a large role in the somber ceremony.

In shocking photos posted to Jill Duggar’s Instagram account, the disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star is spotted onstage speaking into a microphone alongside many of his brothers.

“Yesterday was a very hard, yet beautiful day. The service was lovely and very honoring to my Grandma and the one she loved more than anyone or anything else, Jesus Christ!” Jill captioned the photo.

As Radar exclusively reported, a 911 call revealed that the 78-year-old famed grandmother possibly drowned in her swimming pool on June 9.

Another intimate photo posted by Jill showed the Duggar men, including Josh, Josiah and John-David, and cousin Amy Duggar's husband Dillon King, as pallbearers.

However, according to the blog Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray, the touching tribute to the popular grandmother featured some drama. The blog reported that TLC cameras filmed the funeral service until Josh began speaking.

“Josh spoke which caused the TLC cameras to immediately shut off,” the blog reported.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Josh, 31, was exposed as a child molester by a magazine in 2015. Police documents showed that the disgraced oldest Duggar child fondled five minor females in Jim Bob and Michelle’s family home, four of which were his sisters.

The horrific sex scandal only got worse after Josh, married to Anna Duggar, was busted in a salacious cheating scandal and admitted he was going to therapy for a porn addiction.

Josh’s wrongdoings caused TLC to pull 19 Kids and Counting from the network.

According to Jill, Mary’s tribute was special in that it featured rain showers followed by a rainbow.

“Then there was a beautiful rainbow…'a sign of God’s faithfulness,’ as Grandma would always say!” Jill added.

“We’ll see you in heaven, Grandma! I know you’re enjoying your time with Jesus before the rest of us arrive!”
