Well, this prince already found his princess and the other one, the singleton, is at the moment not fairy tale material....

Nice to see Lady Sarah and Lady Jane in attendance to pay their respects as well.

Prince William has said an emotional goodbye to his childhood nanny, Olga Powell, who was at his side through both childhood and the most important days in his adult life.

Mrs Powell, 82, passed away at the end of last month and her funeral was held this morning for family and close friends in Harlow, Essex.

The loving, but strict nanny, is widely credited for having a massive impact on the lives of both Prince William and Prince Harry as they were growing up.

Everytime I see Prince William or Prince Harry with one or several members of the Spencer family, I get happy.
I think it's because you see them so much with their father's side of the family. When I see them with the Spencers it reminds me of their loving mother and that it's such a nice way to keep Princess Diana in their and our minds and hearts.

This is such a kind gesture. I'm sure the family of Mrs. Powell appreciate it.

Very moving and touching. But from the Duke I have learned to expect nothing less.

This picture about broke my heart.

He seems to be such a good man and every time I think I understand that - something happens and more complexity is revealed. It is nice to see in a man of his age and generation act as he does.

Leave him alone with his friends and family. NO need for paps!

I did wonder yesterday if the paps would be at the service. The issue of press pics at a memorials is a touchy one and one that varies by country, I have noticed. In the states we have had a couple of recent Supreme Court cases that have addressed the issue and this is one time when our government tends to be very conservative.

I thought it was very touching that the family asked for donations to be made to Sentebale. I can imagine that in a way, losing Nanny Olga is like somewhat losing a family member for William and Harry.

One thing that really struck me reading the article is how much Lady Jane Fellows resembles the late Diana in the first picture. Its almost as if we could see what Diana would look like at that age.

Very touching to see William and his family at the funeral. Yes, Lady Jane Fellows also remind me of Diana.

In a very real way, I am sure that is true.

Some of the camera stills of HRH are almost 'spooky'. Sooo many of Diana's traits and mannerisms come through in William even in photos. IMO
