Mourning period of each royal family?
 
I know that after the death of prince rainier III, prince albert is going to succed him after 3 months.
What is the mourning period of each royal family to suceed in the throne?

norwegianne 05-07-2005 05:51 PM

King Olav died in January 1991, and King Harald received the blessing from the bishops in Nidarosdomen in June the same year. However, he swore to uphold the Constitution four days after his father's death.

How long the period of mourning lasts, varies, I think. There is the heavy period of mourning, which I've read lasts for about three months, where in the Royal Family doesn't undertake any official engagements.

When a monarch dies, the heir succeeds him/her as the new monarch as soon as they have died. The enthronement ceremony or whatever is held takes place later of course.

I believe I've read something like what Norwegianne says, that 3 months is a normal period of Court mourning.

That would probably depend on when in the year the Queen will die. I can't imagine that if the Queen died in August that they would have a January coronation.

Does anyone know what date Princess Beatrice (daughter of Queen Victoria; 1857-1944) was buried at Whippingham Church on the Isle of Wight? I know it was sometime in August 1945, but the exact date would be helpful.

magnik 12-27-2007 02:03 PM

The funeral of Queen Victoria took place 2nd February 1901

According to Wikipedia princess Beatrice was buried on the 3th of November, 1944 (she died on the 26th of October), her body was exhumed in August, 1945 and reunited with her husband, Prince Henry, at Whippingham Church.
Wikipedia
Some sources say she was finally buried in August, some sources that in September, like this here:

charles coronation would take months of planning
george vi died in feb 52 and the queen wasnt crowned until june 53

(only exception being after edward viii abdicated his planned coronation went ahead just as planned only with a different monarch)

King George died in February 52 so it was 16 months till Elizabeth's coronation. In Tonga Queen Salote died in December 1965 and her son wasn't crowned until July 1967.

In a few Arab countries such as the Gulf, mourning period is 40 days.

Yes, it is the same as Malaysia.
The mourning period is 40 days.

PrinceOfCanada 03-28-2008 09:27 AM

In the UK, the Throne passes to the new Sovereign at the moment of the previous Sovereign's death. Coronation is not actually required. Typically in the UK, the new Sovereign will wait at least one year, as it would seem inappropriate to have a jubilant celebration (the coronation) during the traditional (Victorian, I think) 1 year of mourning.

Jim 04-13-2008 05:32 PM

According to the records in the site for St. George's chapel the coffin of Princess Beatrice was transferred to St. Mildred's Church, Whippingham,
Isle of Wight on 27 August 1945. The burial service was private with only her son and I believe Princess Marie Louise attending.

Royal Funerals and Tombs
 
Is there a book covering royal tombs and/or funerals? Burial sites of European monarchs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is a listing of royal burial sites. The Find-A-Grave web site (see Find A Grave - Windsor Castle (St. George's Chapel) for an example) provides photos of several royal tombs.

Royal funerals
 
These can be one of the largest and most grand occasions ever. I respectfully look forward to the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth the Second. It will be amazing.

I thought it might be nice to see how different royal families mourn significant members of their rank. The Maori Queen's funeral was spectacular and was almost a week of public mourning and rites.

Green is the traditional colour of mourning for Maori. The majority of the funeral rites were conducted on the sacred courtyard of her official home of Turangawaewae Marae in Ngaruawahia. Royalty from Tonga, Cook Islands, Hawaii and Fiji arrived in official delegations and paid respects to Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu.

Here are some pictures.

Close female relatives of the Maori Queen sit in vigil during the entire mourning process. Her eldest child and daughter Heeni takes the place of chief mourner to the left.

Former prime minister of New Zealand pay their respects.

Prime Minister Helen Clark was afforded a special place during her official welcoming.

Te Ata's oldest son...Tuheitia was raised up as the new Maori King besides his mother's closed coffin. Maori monarchs are elected in secret by the council of chiefs. The people did not know who their new monarch would be until he walked into the sacred courtyard in procession.

I once heard that Princess Diana's coffin weighed some 40 stone. How did they arrive at that figure, and is this a typical weight for a royal coffin?

LordMountbatten 05-22-2010 11:01 AM

Queen Victoria even mourned the death of her much love husband, Prince Albert, for the rest of her life.

Traditionally royal coffins are lead lined, hence the seemingly excessively heavy coffin.

Does anyone know if the period of mourning would extend to things such as the state opening of parliament in the UK? They couldn't delay that for 3 months, could they? Would the new sovereign perform necessary duties like that, and just cancel all the other royal engagements?

What about things like Remembrance Sunday?

(I have a lot of 'what if' questions, apparently...)

Jacknch 11-13-2012 09:42 AM

I would imagine that if such events as the State Opening of Parliament fell during the period between the death and the funeral, it would be delayed until after the funeral. With regard to Rememberance Sunday, I cannot imagine that it would be postponed or delayed at all. I'm not sure whether there is a recent precedent here in the UK where a monarch or senior royal has died at a time where a major national event is about to take place.....anyone else know?

By the way, I do like "what if" questions so keep them coming!

buckbeakbabie 11-13-2012 09:54 AM

I actually just found out that Queen Elizabeth II didn't open Parliament on two occasions - when she was expecting Princes Andrew and Edward. She empowered Lords Commissioners to do it for her. A new monarch could do similar. And I suppose another member of the Royal family could do Remembrance Sunday...

It's interesting to think about, because I'm not sure how patient the world's media is nowadays. I'd imagine they'd be clamouring for the new King, and wanting to see him perform the 'big' official duties. The whole concept of mourning is very different now to what it was in the 1950s... I wonder if it wouldn't be that things along the lines of the State Opening of Parliament would be done by the new King, but minor official engagements would be cancelled for a period of months. But that's just a theory, really...

(Yes, what if questions are so much fun...)

vkrish 12-25-2012 02:06 PM

Can someone tell me who attended the funeral of Queen Maud from BRF? Did George VI attend?
I know usually the monarch doesnt attend foreign funerals. But this is his own aunt by blood, and his grandfather's only surviving cjild. He could have attended it.
The Queen has attended all funerals of her uncles/aunts, even those ny marriage..

wbenson 01-10-2013 02:57 AM

:previous:
This contemporary article doesn't list George VI as attending, only the Duke of Kent.
