I think she was, like the men, wearing the medals and star in lieu of the uniform she would have been wearing had circumstances been different. The Queen would have been wearing civilian clothes no matter what.

Where should obituaries and other articles about the Duke of Edinburgh be posted from now on, as the Death thread and his former News/Events threads have been closed?
We will create a new thread for the Duke of Edinburgh today where such information can be posted.

Edit: you can find the thread here.

I don’t remember seeing other family members. I do remember the other readers including Diana’s sister and I do remember her brother’s eulogy.

The singing from the Choir, (consisting of soprano Miriam Allan and lay clarks Tom Liliburn, Nick Madden and Simon Whiteley) were absolutely beautiful. I was moved especially by Psalm 104.


One of the memorable moments was Prince Philip's driving carriage with his two ponies (being comforted by two drivers), as well as his cap, coat, gloves, blanket and bottle (with red cap/lid) of sugar treats for the ponies. This was where Nimrod was played.
That was when I started blubbering, combination of the ponies, hat and gloves along with Nimrod.

Edward being both the youngest child and the oldest when he became a parent himself (39; Charles was 33, Anne 27 and Andrew 28) does put Louise and James closer in age to their cousins once removed rather than their cousins, but in COVID times it was a surprising error. That they were seated with Edward and Sophie during the service should have made it obvious who they were.
Katie Nicholl, and other British and non-British royal reporters, make errors all the time. She made an egregious error in a written cover story she did on Princess Anne for Vanity Fair, which is much more damaging because that misrepresentation has been and will be used as evidence of a "royal tradition" that is in fact not a royal tradition.

I think this comes about because a reporter may start reporting a certain royal (or royal adjacent), and they get certain visibility and media outlets start inviting them, or they make themselves available, to give commentary about royals and miscellaneous royal matters. Apparently how knowledgeable they are about royals in general, royal history and conventions isn't a deciding factor in them getting these assignments and opportunities.

Again, Katie Nicholl is not the only royal reporter I have seen give erroneous information, but the Vanity Fair misinformation was (to me) beyond to pale.

Many thanks

Flags have been raised at Buckingham Palace and other buildings ending the period of National mourning for the late Duke of Edinburgh.

She looked so small & frail & vulnerable.
It has happened many times. when my mother died inn March last year, we were allowed 10 at the funeral, and that included the minister and 2 funeral people. There were only her six children and one granddaughter who recorded the service for the rest of our family, No hugging, no common meal, no get together, It was horrible. we went to the funeral, had a 40min service and came home again. We didn't like it, but we had to accept. Sadly, these things happen sometimes. We had an outdoors graveside service. It turned out, it was not we wanted as a family, but our Mother only ever wanted a small service. In years to come, they will remember today's service as what Prince Philip wanted.

I just saved a still of the image and rotated it to try and read the words. I'm pretty sure it is "In loving memory", but what is written below is obscured by some foliage. I wouldn't be surprised if it was "Lillibet" though. That message is quite appropriate and proper, and consistent with what we know of HM, I think. No reason for her not to write "Lillibet" as it is well known that is a family name used for her.

It is a pity but realy we know that there are rules and theyr're there for a purpose.. The queen isn't going to be one who breaks the rules.. and PHillip himself has always said he didn't want a big fuss so I suspect the smaller service would have pleased him...

Sarah Chatto also wore the beautiful pearl and Diamond earrings inherited from her mother, which I believe she wears at every public royal event.
A poignant tribute.

Yes, she was definitely there. I don't know how to link it from my Android but she photographed sitting in a car, on the front page of the Daily Mail.

It was a beautiful funeral, I liked the music
the picture of the Queen sitting alone in the chapel, made me sad, but I think, it fitted her state. She lost her companion and husband of 73 years.

I've read a few articles saying that the wake was cancelled, yet people walked to the castle after the service, so there had to have been a gathering. Do we know who were among the 15 people who attended.

Pretty sure more than those three people called her Lillibet. Like Pamela and Patricia Mountbatten amongst others....

We do not know for sure if 15 attended, we have been told there was no wake. They all needed to go back to the castle for their transport home, so under any circumstances of any funeral even in Covid, there would be farewells and transport arranged.

They possibly split in to their own family groups, it is a big castle with lots of rooms, I am not sure but I thought the senior royals had their own rooms there but I could be wrong.

In the end it doesn't really matter and it was a private note. It could have been "Lillibet" or "your devoted wife", but it would have been very charming if she had signed it "cabbage."
