Lady Pamela Hicks if she herself is well enough. And probably David and Sarah with Sarah's husband and probably Serena.
Lady Pamela Hicks is indeed a likely representative of the Mountbatten-Windsors. I just realized that they (hopefully) will need a few camera(wo)men so the world can join the family from a distance; so, if the limit remains 30; it seems unlikely that David and Sarah can join. If the number is increased, they are indeed likely to join their aunt and cousins. That probably also applies to the queen's cousins; who were both family and his colleagues for decades.

His years in the Navy and his record during WW2 should also be highlighted at this time and not forgotten.

This is especially hard at this time during Covid - he can't have the funeral he deserved and the public will not have the same opportunity they would have to show their gratitude for his service and to their support to the Queen.

I remember when I completed my own Duke of Edinburgh and I met him during my Gold presentation - he had an amazing ability to put us all at ease, crack jokes and show interest in the activities we had completed
You are a really lucky person to have met him. I would have been SO nervous- he would have needed all his jokes!
I don’t mean to be rude but did he have airs and graces? I expect formal- but sometimes I look, and even though people tell me their nice, you expect airs and graces

yep I agree - I would not be surprised if only HM The Queen and the children attend the funeral, and then there is a large memorial later. I thought that he might like to be buried at sea.

I am reminded about something the Duke said at a cricket game when the prize player was bowled at in the 90's and never got to the century. He stood, along with the rest of Lords and said to the people around him as he sat, "People make a big deal about centuries - but a well played innings is more worthy."

He wrote this on the visitors book of the Jan Smuts' museum in South Africa. "I am a mere traveler on God's Ship, he pulled the tides that I sail on and will one day pull me ashore."

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.
None of the foreign royals will be allowed to come?

Regardless of his age I feel she must be breaking her heart at his loss and the knowledge she will truly be alone for the rest of her life. His children and grandchildren must be devastated because there have always been "their parents and grandparents" and now there is just Mama or Granny and a pandemic that will make it differcult to even see him off in the style he wanted, let alone the style the Country and Commonwealth needed.
Twitter is nasty. People hide behind fake photos, no photos and can be nasty without any flack. It's truly a disgusting place.

I wonder if they’ll do a public service when restrictions are lowered. Which should be relatively soon, from what I gather.

I can see Philip not wanting a big public service, but IA, he deserves one.

While not unexpected, this is very sad news.
May his soul RIP and may his family be blessed with strength to bear this loss

The longest serving consort in British history.

He did his duty to Queen & country:

“I Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, do become your liege-man of life and limb, and of earthly worship, and faith and truth I shall bear unto you, to live and die against all manner of folks. So help me God.” June 2nd 1953.

Thank you Sir.

Surprised at how emotional I feel. Wasn’t expecting that.

I hope there is at least some pomp at Windsor. A military (RM?) band & naval guard of honour at the least on the day of the funeral. Maybe last year's Windsor parade could serve as a template.

Thanks for sharing. Those are lovely quotes from Philip. A wise man. I love the nautical reference to going home one day; how perfect for a naval officer.

I think they will have a very small funeral and then a larger memorial when more restrictions are lifted. I would not be surprised if they go for HM, his children and grandchildren and maybe A representative or two from Philip’s side.

Not only due to numbers but due to the requirements to quarantine ... which is why I am not even sure that Harry will be able to be their. He will need to do 10 days in quarantine and the funeral is reported to be in 7 or 8 days time.

Only 30 people are allowed and with The Queen, four children, three spouses of children, 8 grandchildren and six spouses of grandchildren that is 22 with no great-grandchildren or more extended family members.

It is for this reason that I do think that a state memorial service will take place next year with foreign royals etc being in attendance.

Lovely article about HM and Philip. I’m so glad that he had time to devote to his own interests, that he and HM got to spend more time together and that family did visit him when they could.


Quote:
While he had few friends in later life—Philip outlived almost every one of his friends—the duke found great pleasure in painting, walking, and reading his vast collection of history books. Because the Queen continued to work, the couple lived largely separate lives toward the end of the duke’s life with Her Majesty based at Windsor and London and Philip at Sandringham, but they remained close by speaking on the phone regularly. When coronavirus lockdowns began in 2020, the Queen and duke were able to spend more time together than ever before, which one source described as “wonderful” for the couple. According to royal sources, the couple enjoyed daily walks around the private gardens and made a point of dining together each evening.

.....

“The Queen and Philip made a decision when the duke retired that they would be apart more, but they were on the phone to each other very often,” said the Queen’s biographer Sally Bedell Smith. “Philip always loved Wood Farm which became his base and the Queen would go and spend time with him when she could and visit her racehorses. She wanted him to be in a place where he could be happy and comfortable. He was able to go on walks, paint, and go out on his carriages in the morning. He loved nothing more than to ride around the Sandringham Estate.”

The official website of the palace has been replaced with a single page showing the announcement of the Duke of Edinburgh's death on a black background.

https://www.royal.uk/

This is the same protocol that is planned for the death of Queen Elizabeth II, so it appears the Duke of Edinburgh is receiving the same honor as the Queen as far as the palace's communications staff is concerned.
