Norton Knatchbull, the next Earl Mountbatten of Burma. As is custom, he'll be styled as such after funeral of his mother, the late Countess.

Countess Mountbatten of Burma, who survived the IRA bomb that killed her father, Earl Mountbatten, and her son, has died aged 93.

A statement from the family said: “Patricia Mountbatten died peacefully on Tuesday 13 June at her home in Mersham, Kent, surrounded by her children.”

A great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria and cousin to the Duke of Edinburgh, Lady Mountbatten’s life was devastated in August 1979 when the IRA blew up the family’s boat in Co Sligo.

The Prince of Wales has paid tribute to his “very special godmother” Countess Mountbatten of Burma, who has died at the age of 93.

Heir to the throne Charles said the Countess played an “extremely important” part in his life and he would “miss her presence most dreadfully”.

How very sad
Sad is perhaps not quite the right word in reference to the death of a 93 year old ? A life well lived,but marked by the appalling tragedy for losing a Father and Son in that ghastly terrorist atrocity.. may the Countess rest in peace with those loved ones taken from her, and us that awful day..

I was wondering about that and frankly, I would have been very surprised if there wasn't a large royal turnout for the funeral as this is family funeral.

The Funeral will take place at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge ,I had thought it might take place at Romsey Abbey.

The Countess hasn't lived at Broadlands for many years. I've also read that she is being buried at Mersham.

Thank you for posting this Royal Protocol. I normally do not open and read things from the Daily Fail but I'm glad I did with this one.

If anyone has any kind of doubts that Charles and his parents do not have a loving relationship, these pictures are, as one would say, "the proof is in the pudding".

Its also made me realize how after the horrific tragedy of losing quite a few of her family in the IRA boat bombing, Countess Mountbatten threw her energies into Child Bereavement UK which now has the Duke of Cambridge as its royal patron. I hadn't realized the royal silver thread that formed this link before.

Death and Funeral of the 2nd Countess Mountbatten of Burma: June 13 and 27, 2017

Child Bereavement was founded in 1994 by Julia Samuel who was a close friend of Diana and now George's godmother. Diana was the royal patron . His mother's involvement is a way closer tie to William than the Countness's .
