It's nice that the deredactie feed is several seconds behind the VTM. I can get a replay if I need to.

I missed seeing the prayers, unfortunately. Could anyone kindly share who read prayers in which language?

It's such a heart warming funeral. Looking at the King, queen and their children makes me want to cry.

Haven't the Norwegians, swedes arrived?
I'm waiting to see who represents the British royal family?

Yes the Norwegians and the Swedes are in the Cathedral, next to Empress Michiko, Princess Beatrix and Los Reyes.
