I don't have problem with Harry representing the Queen.

A few royal reporters and photographers on twitter made few backhanded comments about the Queen not attending. These are the same people who have been demanding that the younger royals should start relieving the Queen from her heavy workload. you can not win with them.

I don't know why the Queen cannot make it but I am sure she has a good reason. Even if that reason is to take a day off, she is an old woman & she needs to start slowing down. That means trusting the younger royals to represent her at big events. It's not like it's the first time, Harry represented her at the Olympics closing ceremony.

The service will take place at Westminster Abbey and will be broadcast by the BBC.The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu will give an address #harry
Looking forward to the service. A great way for the British people to remember a great leader.

Nelson Mandela was the president of South Africa, not the King. I don't believe HM attends the funerals of elected leaders, exceptions being Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. There may be more, but I can't remember.

You are right, and this will be the first in Westminster Abbey (the others being at St Pauls). I've had a look at the media reports at the time it was announced and they are saying HMQ was expected to attend. I've no problem with Harry representing her, just surprised she's not going when there is nothing in her published diary.

I've been learning how to do this on the Kate threads:
Really, he is a prince.
Can't someone tell him to carry a bag if he doesn't know what to do with his hands: http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/is...e=image%2Fjpeg
And he needs to quit touching his face - how unprofessional. It makes me crazy when he touches his face like this. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...90_306x548.jpg
And really - could he maybe wear a shirt that fits and iron his pants when he appears in public? I just don't understand how stupid he is that he does not get it. I mean, he's a prince! He looks like he dresses out of a dustbin. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...27_306x530.jpg
And did anyone count how many times he said "uh" and hesitated. He's a prince - he should know how to do this. It's Public Speaking 101.
And finally - what is it with these Wales guys and hair? Don't they know that they are princes and they need to train the female side side to wear hair up, not hanging in the face? Preferabaly with a tiara. And the sparkles belong on the head not the feet: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...78_306x721.jpg

Thanks Dman! How about all those rock star screams? I do think it is the coolest thing in the world, too.

Yeah, I'd like to be screamed at like that too... for all the right reasons of course.

The prince started his speech by apologising to anyone expecting another famous Harry, and was then forced to pause throughout, for cheers - and one marriage proposal-
