Did my eyes deceive me, or did Queen Margrethe curtsey deeply to Princess Lilian's coffin when she arrived?

I didn't start watching in time to see everyone arrive. I noticed Siliva curtseyed, but Margrethe is a Queen Regnant, and her deep curtsey moved me greatly. I have had great respect and affection for Margrethe anyway, but that has increased tremendously tonight.

Is there any information about the flowers that are both sides of the coffin?

According to Expressen's comments queen Silvia and Victoria have been wiping their tears many times.

Madeleine is in tears all the time... So sad. And I'm worried about Queen Margrethe, she looks so frail and sad. I know she has had some back problems lately and they must be serious since she looks almost the same height as Victoria and I know she is much taller than her. She suddenly looks so old and fragile.

Not happy to see Hellqvist there but it was to be expected...

According to the commentator of the funeral, the court mourning (first grade) ends on Monday, and the second grade mourning ends on 29th March. Until then mourning clothes are worn.

Anyone else surprised that Queen Anne-Marie nor Princess Benedikte didn't attend the funeral?

It did seem to have been beautiful. I didn't understand much of what was said, but I liked the style of it, and there was a bit of music from her homeland. I'm rather disappointed that the British Royal Family doesn't seem to have been represented. I wonder if anyone from Wales was there.
