I didn't even think of the Queen addressing the nation. She is a very strong lady but I hope she doesn't do it. I suspect that if anyone makes a public address, it would be Charles.

I also had the exact same thoughts too.

I don’t see a “like” button here, so I’ll just say you have a wonderful way with words!

I agree. This is one of those instances where Charles will be truly looking after his mother....If HM wants to speak,I can see him suggesting that he do so instead to spare her the pain and difficulty. I can also see him suggesting, even if HM didn’t mention making a speech, that he give one.

So do I...Philips’s face is priceless ! I’m sure Kate has so many wonderful photos...and undoubtedly Charles and his siblings do as well.

I cant see why anyone needs to make a speech and Im sure its not soemthing the queen would consider. Charles and the other children have made statments now and IMO that's enough....

I wish I had an answer for you but I actually was wondering the same thing about the US. Anyone know what network we might be able to watch it on?

I’m sure CNN and MSNBC will cover it, and possibly the main networks. I normally flip between the first two, but something I found out has turned me off CNN, maybe permanently. I also don’t trust US networks to cover this appropriately, so I’m going to hope that BBC America covers it...maybe PBS

Wow, people are complaining about over coverage of Prince Philip?

The BBC has received complaints about the amount of television coverage it gave to the Duke of Edinburgh's death.
The broadcaster suspended planned scheduling across BBC One and BBC Two to air special coverage after the duke died at Windsor Castle on Friday, aged 99.
The BBC later put a dedicated form on its website to allow viewers to complain about the TV coverage.
Broadcasters such as Channel 4 and ITV also adjusted schedules after the news.

I'm hoping for BBC America but I haven't heard anything so wasn't sure if they were covering it or not.

I’m kind of guessing not since it will be on BBC1, which I don’t get, but I’ll post if I find out anything

It was the because of the blanket coverage. Many millions have no interest in the RF & that's fine. The BBC is a publicly funded broadcaster so arguably it does seem unfair if there is no alternative.

I'd argue that the death of the sovereign's consort does merit blanket coverage but I understand if many don't.

Who is this Gayle King? I've seen her quoted in the press quite a bit recently - is she actually incredibly stupid, or just someone who's raking about for headlines to increase her presence in the trash media?

I'm not British but I feel that it probably is more than some people have no interest in the royal family. There are a lot of things going on right now. It is reasonable for people to want to hear about Philip but also want more information on COVID, the economy, etc.

She is Oprah's long time BFF and has been riding on her coat tails for a long time. GK works in the news field. Oprah is an entertainer.
After the H&M's trash talk interview I have lost a lot of respect for Oprah. No follow up questions, no fact checking pure trash talk. She is also working with Harry on mental illness and yet he could not help his own wife even though he'd been working in the field. Had to move out of the county for M?
Day after interview had Oprah on her show and talked racism.

Yes that's a good point.

The BBC did continue to have regular news reports as well as covering the prince's death but certainly there would have been people who felt there wasn't enough non RF news.

And of course there are the serial complainers who like to have a go at the BBC. It's a bit of a national pastime.

Some information here about the positive impact of the DofE Award on so many lives.

The traditional Seraphim Ringing will take place on the occassion of H.R.H. The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh's funeral on Saturday Saturday, between 12.00 and 13.00.

The Seraphim Ringing is the only occassion nowadays that the bells of Riddarholmen Church in Stockholm are ringing.

H.R.H. The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh received the Order of the Seraphim, by H.M. King Gustav VI Adolf on 23 June 1954.

Due to covid-19, and current restrictions, Riddarholmen Church won't be open to the public during the ceremony as is common.

Yes, this is about all of it. Gayle and Orph met in the early 1980s (before Oprah became a household name) working at a local TV station. They have been BFF ever since. Gayle pretty much owes her entire existence to Oprah She is a Morning News Show anchor on CBS. Had it not been for Oprah she would most likely be nothing more than a former local TV anchor from a medium market at this point.

Gayle caused quite the controversy last year after an NBA star was killed in a plane crash.
