I always feel sorry for APB - since his wife died he always seems lost and looks slightly shambolic.
He may look lost but he's got his family around him and he have Camilla. Despite everything, they remain very close and fond of each other.

Feel very sorry for Camilla, it's awful to have to say goodbye to a sibling especially if you have been very close. Been in her shoes. Must be the first time I have ever seen Prince Charles show any PDA...so lovely and comforting for Camilla.

Can anyone read Camilla's signature?

It looks like Mom or Mow or Mam or Maw & possibly some other letter/s on the end. Unless it is Maii but there are no dots.

Thanks

Mark may have requested that people not wear black and to wear something whimsical.

The women in his life wore:
Ayesha wore a polka dot/diamond top with a long purple & orange skirt with a Eastern wedding type head band.

Camilla wore a blue & white polka dot/diamond suit with a blue scarf tied around it.

Annabel wore a blue dress/skirt with a bright pink scarf and a dark blue jacket.

Laura wore a striped skirt with a blue or black top & a blue or black jacket and red shoes.

Katie Elliot wore a diamond & polka dot coat.

Alice Irwin wore a blue dress with a bright pink sash. (To match her mother.)

Clio wore a red leaf dress on a black background.

Talitha wore a pale green pants with matching top.

The men were a bit more subtle.
Prince Charles wore a blue suit with a polka dotted handkerchief.
Tom Parker Bowles wore a blue suit.
Ben Elliot wore a blue suit.
Tom Lopes wore a blue suit.
Luke Irwin look like he's in a black suit.
APB blue suit with a safety pin as a tie clip.

Maybe Milla? I think I read somewhere that she was called Milla by family.

It's the word "from". Her signature is hidden by the flowers.

Lovely tribute. He seemed liked he truly enjoyed life. Very strange though the lack of attendance of other royals.

I don't find it odd at all. I would imagine that the rest of the BRF (other than William and Harry who are in the US) never really met or interacted with Mr. Shand. From the sounds of it, it seems to me to have been a small, private service for those close to Mark.

There is no reason for Prince William and Prince Henry to attend Mark Shand's funeral. They accepted their father's new wife. It does not mean that they are obliged to attend Camilla's, Duchess of Cornwall, family gatherings of any kind

I wasn't even thinking about W & H, or even the Queen and Philip. Seriously not one single royal attended. That indeed is a bit strange to me. Wasn't Eugenie at the Event he had?

Cold, they attending her daughter and son weddings. I'm not here for this, I'm just saying I found it a bit strange.

If Prince Charles' sons chose to attend the weddings of Camilla's, Duchess of Cornwall, children in 2005 and 2006, they had their reasons or were persuaded to do so or ..., perhaps, it was just a PR move to show the family unity. By the way, Prince Charles and Mrs. Parker Bowles were married in 2005.
Now both gentlemen have their own life and plans. There is no need for PR event to show the unity and support. It is Prince Charles' job to console his current spouse. It may seem strange to you though.

Yesterday William, Harry and Eugenie were in US. I think they will attend a Memorial Service for Mark Shand.

I think it's easy for people to read into William and Harry's actions continued anti-Camilla feelings, but I tend to suspect that's more owing to their own continued anti-Camilla feelings than anything else.

It's likely that attending the funeral didn't work out well with William and Harry's plans to travel to the US for Guy's wedding. While they could have delayed their trip a bit, the more royal presence at the funeral the more unnecessary public attention is drawn to it, and the more it becomes about them and less about the deceased.

In choosing not to go, the Cambridges and Harry can be seen as being prudent. They're not making last minute changes to travel plans (which can get pricey), and they're not stealing the limelight from Camilla's family. This in and of itself is paying huge respect to the Shands.

For the other royals, it becomes a question of if they knew Mark and how well they did. We don't know that Camilla's extended family is particularly close to Charles' extended family, so the absence of other royals could simply be that they don't feel it's their place to attend this, or that they don't feel they were close enough to Mark to justify everything that their presence here would entail.
