Except dressed in black. People are only going to say the same thing.

I really like how they are made to be timeless too. You couldn't place when they are made. Very cleverly done and always very nice commemoration too. I don't k ow what people would except.

Exactly, they are saying almost exactly the same as when he retired just in black. They aren't pretending they are speaking right now with faux tears or anything. As ever, lovely to hear from his children about how loving he was, and to be reminded how difficult his childhood and upbringing was.

Let me try to get this right! Ena's father was Prince Henry of Battenberg, the brother of Prince Louis of Battenberg, so Ena was the first cousin of Prince Philip's mother. And Ena's mother was Princess Beatrice, the younger sister of both Prince Philip's great-grandmother, Princess Alice, and the Queen's great-grandfather, Edward VII. Queen Sofia's father was Prince Philip's first cousin.

Horrendous childhood. Quite shocking really.

Just watched the two interviews with the princess royal and earl of Wessex. I really liked how Anne talked about his father's childhood (which might be relatively new information for many while it must have shaped him as a person); she clearly didn't like the question about his 'gaffes' and blamed people reading the wrong newspapers... before asking to move on. I thought that Edward handled that part much better, while starting by saying that the picture of his father as a rascal was unfair (but how the duke was good sports about it) and stressing how his father's humor (accompanied by a twinkle in his eye) was such an important part of his personality but that his humor could be interpreted differently and be used against him.

And I liked Edward talking about how important his parents were for each other; that was missing in Anne's interview (but could have been edited out).

The funeral procession video. More like arms around their shoulders.

Happens for loads of people. When I first started seeing them I was a bit confused but it makes sense.
Yes. I think it was one of the Queen's cousins or maybe one of the Mountbatten ladies that talked once about having to film remembrances of about 10 people whilst they were still alive and how strange it was to talk about them in the past tense. It happens with many public figures for the documentaries designed for the day their death is announced.

Ah, thank you. I think I may have actually seen that clip then. I’d like to see it again, though. I’ll have to look it up this evening.

Its the archway underneath the Horse Guards building going from Horse Guards Parade into Whitehall. It's about 15 minutes or so before the arrival at the abbey if that helps.

Middletons attending the funeral? They included in the final 30. Interesting if true.

Even though it was expected it is still a really sad time for The Queen. After 73 years together that is a special relationship together. This morning I was listening to a radio interview of The Duke speaking about his carriage driving accident back in 1985. After that the radio played Roberta Flack's song Killing me softly with his song." And that was it for me, I teared up and felt quite emotional. This was a man who was always there supporting The Queen for my whole life. I always thought he was tremendous, and I loved the fact he wasn't always Politically correct.

He belonged to a generation when Men were Men, and Men were Gentlemen.

Which means Queen Sofia is Philip's first cousin once removed or the PoW's second cousin, correct?

I very much doubt this is true but, of course, we have no way of knowing until the RF releases a list or photos/videos are obtained. If, by some chance, it is true then that is very interesting indeed. I did notice the article stated that Mr. and Mrs. Middleton have become good friends with Charles and Camilla. We gave no way to know if that’s true, either, but for the sake of their children and grandchildren I certainly hope it is. Life, and particularly a life like they lead, is always most pleasant when everyone involved is friendly and supportive.

Information about events on the 10th. Appropriately, salutes at sea as well as on land.
