Ah got your point now lula. The spin of politics does not stop even over a funeral ... that's sad. However, I like the fact that the SRF show up at such occasions (no matter what background decisions finally made them go) and I wish more Royal Families would do the same in other countries as it does show respect towards the families of the deceased.

Duke, the Royal Family is the representation of a country, and often before the tragedies a country needs turn represented, in Spain this way is think. Often, specially in topics as the terrorism, or in situations where the politicians are involved, the Royal Family represents this "something" that is to the margin of the politics and that therefore the people perceive as more nearby.

Only we can hope that a lot of time passes until there is another funeral for a victim of ETA. The Spanish and French police are doing well work, in the last years the attitude of France has changed and probably after this change furthermore. For the first time ETA kills in French territory. For the present time the King travels to Paris this week, and this one will be one of the principal topics of conversation.

The queen is sad, the princes are sad, but tomorrow they'll go back to their daily routine. I don't mean to be insensitive, but it bothers me that the attention is on the queen crying and not the mother's suffering.
Roxsteve, I don't think anyone here made a big deal of the Queen crying. If I remember it right, all the posts were towards the Queen showing sympathy to the families of the killed officer. Everyone is just saying how nice the Queen or her attitude towards the victims by being there for the funeral and I haven't read any posts that says it's a big deal for the Queen crying. I think you misunderstood some posts.

My sympathy to the families of the officers
