What a beautiful tribute to his uncle! And how brave and sad that Tom and Ben had to make that long flight knowing what they had to when they reached the States.

My thoughts and prayers to Ayesha and the rest of the Shand family.

Beautifully written. It hurts to lose someone you love. Just from the funeral today of a colleague who died from ovarian cancer at age 58. She leaves behind two teen girls. Her sister gave a beautiful eulogy. Tom really using a wonderful writer.

Very well written. It is very clear that the Shands / PBs / Elliots are a close family, and Mark was close to his nieces and nephews.

Ah, I had no idea that Camilla is a descendant of one of the Lennox sisters!

ETA: Ouch, I think I made a mistake there. Lady Anne Lennox would have been the aunt of the famous Lennox sisters though, so there is a connection.

The Daily Mail & others are saying the funeral for Mark Shand will be held on Thursday May 1st.

When their father died, they had a funeral but it was stated he was cremated at a later date.

Mark may be cremated and his ashes buried or scattered in India.

It's beautiful and very touching to see Charles hold Camilla's hand in comforting her in this time.

I thought the same. It is intrusive of the press to photograph these personal, sad moments but that's the press. They photographed Sophie's mother's memorial service in 2005. It's at times like that you'd think they would leave you alone, given that Sophie's mother wasn't even famous. (She didn't really want Sophie to marry Edward as she was afraid it would'n't work given the family history of unsuccessful marriages.) It's different for Mark as he had fame in his own right, but it's still sad that the paps felt it suitable to attend this funeral.

What an emotional funeral for the Duchess and her family. Totally unimportant here but I would like to say: HRH looked wonderful and probably brother Mark would have been so proud on her.

Very touching, Camilla was clearly devastated.

The body language between Charles and Camilla speaks volumes.
Very poignant.

I too thought the same thing. We don't often see royal couples be affectionate, so when I do, it warms my heart.

Such a sad day. It must be dreadfully hard to lose a sibling as they tend to be your first ever playmate when you are young and you share such a lot when growing up.
It is no surprise that the media turned up, but I imagine they were quite some distance away so hopefully the intrusion will have been minimal.

I suppose it was inevitable that the funeral would be covered, and in a way it is a good thing because Mark was a public figure in his own right and the photos and article may help raise money for the elephants that were so close to his heart and that would please him.

My heart aches for Camilla and the rest of her family though, because their grief is so obvious and the photos so intrusive. But though the photos are intrusive, it's lovely to see the way Charles is caring for Camilla. That hand-holding shot speaks volumes.

Why is Andrew PW wearing a safety-pin in his tie? Is there some symbolism to it or is he just trying to keep the tie from flapping around?

Take your pick:-

1. Its as you suggest an ordinary safety pin to stop his tie flapping
2. He's lost a button off his shirt and (see 1) doesnt want his tie to flap
3. It's a "fun" precious metal tie pin.

I always feel sorry for APB - since his wife died he always seems lost and looks slightly shambolic.
