Really? How absurd, he was a kid!, Im 18 and I would've cried my eyes out!



I'd congratulate the Kings of Spain for the beautiful family they have built. And I don't know what else.. Im very talkative, so I'd have a nice chat with the Princes of Asturias too.

why aren't they allowed to cry in public?? whether old or young that's not the issue, it's a matter of expressin how they feel, if they are very sad then why not show it!

In Chelsy's interview to the press, she told them that that is what Harry said, and he had alot of anger about it, the British Royal family, DO NOT cry at funerals, the Queen didn't cry at her mum's or sister's funeral!!!

it seems odd, Queen Elizabeth wept in public when her yacht was laid to rest (i'm pretty sure of), yet she cant cry at a funeral? Odd.

I'd do the same, but I'd also ask King JC about his life and how he felt succeeding General Franco, knowing that his country had very little faith in him. I'd ask what his fears are and what he is proud of in his 'role' as King of Spain.

Perhaps it has something to do with the old British 'Stiff Upper Lip' thing.
Poor Harry, a ten year year old should be able to cry bucket loads when his mummy dies.

I would like to ask all the Royals if they had the option of being anyone else in the world, who would they be????

The Queen did not cry at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, but she did cried on the stairs of St. Geogre's Chapel at Princess Margaret's funeral, i think, auntie.

Yes, she did, I remember the picture on the front of the newspaper. I wouldn't say she wept but she did shed a few tears.

I would love to meet the Swedish RF. I would 'jokingly' ask CP Victoria what she wants to be when she grows up. Mostly to see what kind of sense of humor she has, but honestly, I would most likely be 'royal' struck and only be able to get out 'Your Highness'!

Well, I had the impression that she had tears in her eyes at her mother's funeral - she doesn't have to break down to seem to be mourning "properly".

Don't we already have a thread on this topic?
Anyway, I would bombard QEII with questions, I could imagine since she has reigned so long she is a veritable walking history book.
Among other (more serious)questions I would also ask her if there is a secret file on Jack the ripper and if I could have a peek
I would like to ask GeorgeV about his feelings when he heard what had become of his look-alike cousin Csar Nicholas and his family.
I would like to ask Queen Mary what a feeling it really was to marry the brother of your dead finance.
And I would like to ask Queen Victoria about John Brown

I'd ask Sultan Qaboos about how he even managed to start implementing his reforms - and how far he actually intends to go - will women be totally free to do what they want? Will he, in the end, proced with the reforms at a loss of traditional culture. And who does he favour as his heir, as he has no official ones.
