No it is a part of the service. Everyone will be standing. After the lowering of the coffin and the comittal, the Archbishop will pronounce the benediction (blessing) followed by trumpeters and buglers, The Garter King of Arms reading Prince Philip’s titles and styles, and the National Anthem.

Though i wish that the camera will focus on the coffin and the priests in that moment and not showing who is crying and who is not...We really don’t need to know that

Actually, that thought about Louise crossed my mind too but I wouldn't bet anything but the lint in my pocket on that. Attire would be the first concern. She'll be dressed in an appropriate church outfit. It would really be touching and emotional though if she did drive the carriage perhaps with Penny Knatchbull by her side.

Oh good gracious, you’re right. Having Penny Knatchbull with her hadn’t even crossed my mind but if the two of them were to drive the carriage I’d bet my last cup of coffee that there wouldn’t be a dry eye in the family or amongst dedicated royal watchers. I agree that it’s highly unlikely but I’ve been surprised before and given how many deeply personal touches have already been announced and we know how involved Philip was in the planning, I can’t say that I’d be stunned if, in fact, Louise and Penny are driving his beloved carriage and ponies.

I don’t think I can bear to watch American coverage of the funeral with all the errors. Is sky news a good alternative? I think I don’t get bbc America on my lowest rung cable

I'm not going to watch American coverage either. I'm all set up will watch the coverage on the Royal Family You Tube feed.

I have BBC America, buy they don't have coverage of the funeral listed. Does anyone know if they are going to cover it?

I had plan to stream the YouTube channel above of the RF. One question I have is will there be any commentary on that channel? So wish I could hear BBC. I agree with others that it would drive me nuts listening to some American newscasters.

I was going to, but I donít want to deplete my batteries on my IPad, so Iíll probably check out ABC, with Victoria Murphy and Robert Jobson, and MSNBC with Victoria Howard (I assume others, too, but I donít know). KF BBC World ends up showing it, Iíll probably watch their coverage

Death of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh: 9 April 2021

I found this on YouTube. Iím not sure it will work in the US but it may be worth a shot.

https://youtu.be/LL55C3pgiEo

I am technically challenged so please be kind.

It looks like a BBC Link to the funeral.

I donít think so. I have it also, and my tv cable guide - which has updated all the networks that are airing the funeral - lists BBC America as airing their usual programs

I just looked and it appears that Iíll be able to watch it on BBC World. It doesnít look like BBC America is showing it, at least not according to my guide.

I'm in Oregon so probably will watch MSNBC on our satellite dish. Live Streaming doesn't have good sound on our 14 year old TV.
I was so disappointed that I missed the live version of the Queen Mother's funeral in 2002. Thank goodness for YouTube and my iPad.

Your BBC World is covering the funeral ? Odd, my cable guide doesn’t show it, and neither does the website.

I may try to stream the Aussie site that Dickie Arbiter will be on, at least occasionally ..other than that, I’ll flip between ABC and MSNBC

A delightful photograph! Grandfather Philip had many interesting stories to tell to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The funeral service sounds very moving.

I love much of the music that the Duke has chosen but the Russian Kontakion for the Departed I find particularly moving. It’s also a nod to the Duke’s links to the Imperial Russian family.

Those are gorgeous photos that the Queen and Mike have released. Kudos to Catherine and Sophie for the pics.

I know! American commentators on BRF events are awful.

The Sun has a live feed on Youtube, all free. It has already started. All available in the US.

Agree that it does seem that the procession is excluding on the grounds of gender - Earl Snowden is walking while his sister is not, with no granddaughters walking. Itís a shame, the funeral of such a moderniser would be an ideal time to give women the choice and do away with the gender exclusion.

I am surprised to see both Anne and Tim walking, in the interests of reducing numbers Iíd have expected him only to walk if Anne did not wish to do so (which was never going to happen!) Iíd like to think James would have been asked - William and Harry may have felt that they were too young to walk behind Dianaís, but they were always going to have greater media scrutiny upon them being the heir and the spare and a harder time with it being their motherís procession far before her time. Everyone has to do what they feel is right for them and that isnít always the same thing.

Article at the website of The Swedish Royal Court, the Seraphim Toll for prince Philip today 12.00-13.00.
Ahead of the funeral in Windsor, the Royal Family has sent wreaths as a final greeting.

It’s long standing tradition. This is how it always has been done in UK so it doesn’t surprise me for 5 minutes... I think Beatrice, Eugenie, Louise, Zara and Sara feels rather relived than excluded

Princess Anne is UK’s only female Honorary Admiral of the Royal Navy so i don’t think anyone expects her to not go... Both she and Tim went in 2002 when The Queen Mother’s coffin was moved from St James’ Palace to Westminster Hall to lie in state but on the funeral day, Anne walked alone while Tim travelled with Peter and Zara To the Abbey by car.
It’s very likely that The Queen’s future funeral procession looks the same.

I refuse to read too much into it....

Itís what the Queen wants and presumably what Prince Philip wanted. Iím ok with that.
