You are correct. In fact, Princess Ann just addressed this in the ITV interview.

It might just work if families sat in front and behind each other - so William behind Catherine then a space to the next family- but I still can't see that working for all of them. I think using the bigger part of the church will be much more practical.
There are three rows, so they could use the front and the back row.

I don't see them using the less personal bigger Nave as the "ceremonial center" is within the quire. So, unless it is absolute necessary (which I don't think it is if you carefully plan it out), I'd say they'll use the quire.

If I am counting correctly there are 33 seats both on the left and on the right side in the front (so 66 in total - using only the first and second row, that would leave 44; depending on the number of households they could probably seat at least 6 on each row (3 groups of 2; or up to 9 if two larger households - with 2 seats between each party); so that's 24 or more in total only in the front part). Then there is the area for the choir that can be used, as they won't need a choir. And behind the choir are a few more seats. So, that seems plenty to seat at max 30 people divided over between 10 and 15 households at most.

I don't recall seeing that image but I'd like to. Was it at the actual funeral or while they were looking at the flowers outside Balmoral?

It would be wonderful if he could make it - if the current Covid-regulations allow for it; one poster wrote about the option of a 5 day quarantine and a negative test afterwards. So, if he would arrive tomorrow morning (so leave tonight), he could be tested on day 5 (Wednesday); get his result on Thursday; and be at the funeral on Friday or Saturday - assuming he tests negative. If he tests positive, he of course cannot attend - but that would apply to any family member testing positive in the next week.

It does sound like that....Iím glad Philip didnít linger in pain, but like you said, I hope that everyone had time to say goodbye. It would be so painful to live with regrets..

I think the Queen would like to have all her children and grandchildren there. And Prince Harry must want to be at your grandfather's funeral.

Well how else would they do it? Macabre certainly but people don't want to talk the day someone dies and it takes time to put TV shows together. They probably have dozens for the Queen.

Happens for loads of people. When I first started seeing them I was a bit confused but it makes sense.

TBF for Anne and Edward is was clearly part of one of the many documentaries they've taken part in and said similar comments in just dressed in black. Morbid yes, but then no more so maybe that carrying a black outfit around "just in case". I'm sure they see it as part of their public duty and would rather make a fitting tribute to their father when they aren't grieving.

They don't. If you notice they talk about the past and their childhood etc.

I recall seeing during the funeral procession, briefly when they(Phillip, Charles, William, Harry, Charles Spencer) thought they were out of public view under Marble Arch that was when there was a side hug or pat on the shoulder from the DoE to his grandsons. Then they began to walk forward again.

Yup...and it strikes me as nervy to ask Anne and Edward, though they agreed, so obviously they didnít Baffert any issues with it.

Edward is wearing a black tie and the conversation is very much presented as though he is dead already. They could have done the interviews without the macabre touches but still planned for them to go out after he died.

BBC one has Charles too. I would say Andrew has been edited out...

I believe its common practice to be honest, for royalty, for PMs and senior politicians, world leaders etc.

Yeah but they aren't like now he is gone or anything. It is obvious filmed to be shown after he dies but they are talking about his achievements.it isn't a weep feast imaging his death.

Actors. I have seen one for Richard Attenbourough, Peter Hall once they get to a certain age I think they just make them. Judi Dench probs has one. Maggie Smith.

Some of the comments sound quite similar to those made when he turned 90 and then when he retired to me.
