Princess Ragnhild and her family live in Brasil, so they mostly attend at only bigger events... but I think the whole family is quite close.

I won't soon forget the distraught emotions that Princess Stephanie of Monaco could not hide at her father's funeral. Of course her brother and sister also cried at times at the funeral but Princess Stephanie's emotion was the most dramatic and (seemingly) transparent. It seemed to me like a woman who had some regret about unsaid words or lack of closure.

I totally agree with you. I've watched many documentaries on Queen Elizabeth II and her relationship with Princess Diana. Her Majesty really liked her even if sometimes they didn't agree. In a video someone said that Elizabeth saw her as " a joyful and attaching woman that could make laugh easily ". And I think Charles was also devasted by the news.

It's easy to let a sentimental tear slip through. I think the BRF have all been brought up to have a 'stiff upper lip' when it comes to showing real emotion. It can be really easy for a few tears to become a torrent of tears in an extremely emotional moment. You have to hold them all back or you will lose control. Also, sometimes grief is beyond tears. I didn't cry at my brother's funeral. I didn't cry about it for over 5 years.

The death of someone over 100 years old is not tragic

When I think of how Britain reacted to the Queen Mother's death, it makes me feel quite proud. We didn't go into hysterics but we realised we'd lost one of the most important figures of our time. It sounds silly to say, but even now I miss seeing the Queen Mother with her trademark hats and wave.
When someone young dies, it is tragic - too soon - and usually a surprise. I'm sure the whole RF was saddened by the Queen Mum's death, but it was not unexpected. Families can know that the suffering of their loved one is over, and take an opportunity to celebrate a life well-lived.

The pictures of Letizia crying after her sister's death were really touching.
I think everyone of us felt sorry for her and her family.

I remember watching the tapes of both Monaco royal funerals of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III. Both times the royal family looked very sad I think it was harder for them to lose Grace than Rainier being she was still fairly young and beautiful. Even though Rainier outlived Grace by many years it is still hard for all three of their children Caroline, Albert and Stephanie. At times Caroline looked as she was going to faint then Stephanie too. My grandfather had died a week before their father died I hoped and prayed he would live but he had died. Andrea, Charloette and Pierre too looked sad walking behind their grandfather's coffin I too know what that feels like.

Whenever I see this pics of Prince Claus' funeral, I feel really sorry for Willem-Alexander... poor man, I guess he's always carried this "you-will-be-king-behave-as-one" weight on his shoulders... and I truly believe he's got so many emotions restricted ... that's why marrying Máxima did him a great good.

The first great tragedy of Prince Charles' life was the murder of his beloved greatuncle Lord Mountbatten. I read that on the day of the funeral, Prince Phillip goaded Charles at lunch so that he would burst into tears then and have a suitable calm demeanour at the funeral.

I can't believe no-one has mentioned Prince Frederik's tears!

That is so sadistic of him. Really, it's no wonder he talks to plants.

I don't know whether it was actually a rule, but Queen Victoria certainly considered dignity and composure as key values for royals, and taught her sons and grandsons on it. Five of her granddaughters ended up being Queens or Empresses (Alexandra of Russia, Maria of Rumania, Victoria of Spain, Matilde of Norway and Sofia of Greece) and in their memoires and biographies, there is always some reference to these "Victorian values".

Märtha was holding a Speech for her father and was moved to tears. She also moved her mother to tears (and I think I remember pictures of Máxima with tears in her eyes... even if she doesn't speak norwegian ).

Great video! These are all powerful pictures. It's a good reminder that Royals have feelings like everybody else.

I think Maxima may have been crying because of pregnancy hormones.

In the documentary about Mary, when she talks about her mother she starts crying, then she jokes and says "Does it look like I've been crying" and the answer was "Yes".

Don't be so hard with Prince Charles...I saw him really moved in Lady Diana's funeral. You may easily notice how sad he was. His children where also distroyed...How not too? They didn't cry, but their faces told how sad they felt.

I know some people that whithout being royal, doesn't cry at the moment of the tragedy or even in funerals, but that could easily burst into tears some time after and whithout an apparent cause. Life is not that simple...

Oh, by the way. I was remembering an Argentinian soap-opera who was entitled: "Rich people also cryes"...This could easily related to this thread!

Vanesa.
