Very sad for The Queen, now all that generation has gone around her. That generation where men were men and gentlemen. 73 years together, he will be missed.
All her family will feel his passing quite keenly. He has left quite a legacy of duty and service and his family will have lots of good memories to cherish.

I am not really following the British royal family but he was a legend and we were very used to live a life where he exists so this comes as a shock.

I feel for the Queen, it's not easy to say goodbye to a lifelong friend and companion. I wish the family the best.

I dont even know if all the children and grandchildren with partners will be able to go. How many people are allowed at funerals?

Just checked and it is 30.

Eight grandchildren...4 partners (Meghan wont be there), 4 children and three partners and the Queen. That is 20. And perhaps.the oldest great grandchildren, Savannah, Isla and George and perhaps David,Sarah and Lady Hicks. Bring it to 30. He would want a private ceremony.

Maybe because of COVID restrictions he'll get the more intimate one he longed for.

I can't imagine the pain of the Queen, to lose the companion of her whole life. May he rest in peace.

Rest in Peace.

I was hoping he'd make it to his 100th birthday.

The poor Queen: she'll be lost without him.


No-one lives for ever, and 99 is a wonderful age, but I'm very sad.
30 people... What are the travel restrictions for the UK currently? Could Harry fly in tomorrow and quarantine long enough to be at his grandfather's funeral?

Wife: 1
Children & spouses: 7
Grandchildren & spouses: 4 + 3 + 4 + 2 = 13
Great-grandchildren: 4 + 5 + 1 = 10 (I don't expect all of them to be present; maybe they decide to bring only the oldest 5-7 or none at all)

So, his direct descendants are 30, with his wife making it 31. The babies surely won't join - and I'm not sure about Harry and less sure about Meghan. They will likely decide to keep it within the family with probably the Archbishop of Canterbury to lead the service and maybe one government representative (who would be a likely candidate?) and/or a representative of Philip's original family (not sure who)?

I assume that, due to the Covid situation, there cannot be a public funeral. Prince Philip allegedly never wanted a big, public funeral anyway, so his wish will probably be fullfilled.

If there was a man who could live forever, it would be Prince Philip. A life full of extraordinary service to the country, the crown and his family.

Meghan wont be there and maybe not Harry too. I would say Autumn would be. Along with at least 3 and maybe five of the great grandchildren.

Lady Pamela Hicks if she herself is well enough. And probably David and Sarah with Sarah's husband and probably Serena.

My first reaction was denial; No Phil, I know you want no celebration for your centenary, but not this way!
Then check everywhere (SM, News Media) and fine, it's happening.

He's one of few, he had a very eventful life and now he deserved to rest.

Rest in peace, The Duke of Edinburgh.

It shouldn't surprise me but it does. I thought he'd be alive for another year or two.
