Mods please move if there's somewhere more appropriate.

This is Shackleton's Cross by Edward Seago.

https://en.artsdot.com/@@/A268UY-Edw...georgia,-(1957)

Seago was with Prince Philip onboard Britannia in the South Atlantic in 1956/57. The painting was commissioned by the prince & forms part of his private collection.

The painting inspired this lovely haunting piece by the modern British composer Howard Goodall.

Thank you for posting this. There's a similar event planned in Wellington.

I'm not sure about Canada although flags are to remain at half mast on government buildings in Ottawa until the funeral.

Yes - both my grandfathers died many years ago, but they were the same generation as Prince Philip, and over the last few years it's felt as if the Queen and Philip had become like everyone's grandparents. Someone on TV said yesterday that it feels as if the Queen and David Attenborough are the only grown-ups left now - it sounds like a silly thing to say, but I know what they meant! The Queen and Prince Philip were like the elders of the family: they were always there and always had been there.

Yes that's an apt description Alison H. Like a tribal elder.

From today's Express. I've heard this story about JFK Jr before but's it's very touching.

I think I can relate to similar feelings.

I've seen it said on this forum that "he came from a time when men were men, and men were gentlemen." Prince Philip was an energetic former military man who willingly accepted carrying out public duties that were, mostly, unsung and probably not very interesting, without ever seeking greater recognition. In a world where everyone wants their two minutes of fame, or wants a job that's immediately fulfilling, Prince Philip's attitude now seems so rare. It feels like with him, the uncomplaining and resilient character of his generation has passed away. There seems no one to quite replace him.

Does the rite of giving viaticum to the person in danger of death exist in the Church of England?

It’s difficult to imagine the UK without Philip, and I think it will feel downright surreal when The Queen passes away. I’m around the same age as William and my grandparents were around The Queen’s age. For me, QEII and Prince Philip are almost like a link to my own grandparents, especially to one of my grandmothers, who was the reason I became interested in the BRF.

I’m sure Charles will be a good King, but Elizabeth and Philip were so young when she became Queen - they’re part of the fabric of the UK in a way that will be hard to replicate.

Funeral this Saturday 3pm at Windsor - children and grandchildren in attendance

The funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh will be held at Windsor next Saturday, Buckingham Palace says.

The event is to be a "ceremonial royal funeral" not a state funeral, which "very much reflects the duke's wishes", a palace spokesman says.

It will start at 15:00 BST and be televised throughout.

The palace says the funeral will "celebrate and reflect" a life of service and has been adapted to take account of Covid-19 regulations.

The Queen has approved the plans.

And that’s precisely how i imagine The Queen right now... Not screaming in pain like Queen Victoria was said to do the moment Prince Albert passed away - but dignified and composed like her grandmother Queen Mary was in 1952, and taking care of everyone else while processing her own grief.

...the circumstances under which the two women lost their spouses were not exactly the same, but neither are/were the temperaments of Victoria and Elizabeth.

Members of the Royal Family, including the Prince of Wales, will walk behind the Duke of Edinburgh's coffin, with the Queen travelling separately to the chapel, the palace says.

The procession will take eight minutes, with eight pallbearers carrying the coffin up the west steps into the chapel.

It will be draped with the duke's standard, with a wreath and his naval cap and sword on top.

On arrival, it will be greeted by the Dean of Windsor and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Dean, the Archbishop and the eight pallbearers are not included in the 30 attendees allowed under coronavirus guidelines.

A guest list for the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral will be released on Thursday.

We should assume that the guests will be children and grandchildren of the duke.

The Duke of Sussex will attend, the Duchess, on medical advice, will not.

There will be a national silence at 15:00 BST before the service begins.

More details about the service will be released on Thursday.

After the service the duke will be interred in the Royal vault.

Philip’s coffin will be borne on a specially modified Land Rover, which was always his special request, as he played some part in the design of the vehicles many years ago.

It will be flanked by pall bearers drawn from the Royal Marines. The Prince of Wales and other members of the royal family will take part in the procession on foot, immediately behind his coffin. The Duke of Edinburgh’s insignia, the medals and decorations conferred on him by the UK and Commonwealth countries, together with his Field Marshal’s baton, and Royal Air Force wings, and his insignia from Denmark and Greece will be positioned on cushions on the altar.

Here is a timeline of the day:

14.40 Coffin at state entrance, Windsor Castle.

14.45 Processions steps off.

14.53 Land Rover reaches the west steps of St George’s Chapel.

15.00 National minute’s silence, the coffin enters the chapel.

That’s a beautiful story that says so much about Philip’s innate decency and compassion

I hope the Queen doesn't arrive at the chapel alone and have to wait for the others and the coffin.

I would I imagine that all of he children and grandchildren will walk behind the coffin but I imagine any partners and perhaps some of the children will arrive at the chapel ahead of the children.

I would ot be surprised to see Sophie actually being with the Queen.

The Queen, the Private Secretary, 7 children and partners. 8 grandchildren and probably 5 partners (I see Autumn being there) and a couple of great grand kids I dont see anyone else there

Apparently it willbe different then at the Queen Mother's funeral where only the men (+ Princess Anne) walked behind the coffin and the woman arrived by car. But yes it would not be nice if the Queen would need to drive alone.

Well I can't imagine you would tell Zara and Beatrice and Eugenie not to. And I think those days of the women awaiting the coffin is gone. In normal families absolutely everyone follows the coffin.

But I also can't see the family leaving the Queen alone so some will be with her.


The Queen mother's funeral was a bells and whistles one and the only grand child or great grandchild old enough who didn't go after the coffin was Sarah and Zara.so yearatne traditional in that sense.
