A black pennant was added to the flag at both Huis ten Bosch and Paleis Noordeinde last Saturday in remembrance of the duke of Edinburgh (and acknowledgement of his funeral).

Just read that the signal 'Action Stations' means that everyone on the ship needs to take his position. So, we had:
1. Last Post: Final Farewell for a soldier laid to rest
2. Reveille: Symbolizing Philip's welcome into/waking up in heaven I assume (or something along those lines)
3. Action Stations: Call for everyone (left behind) to take in their position

That so sounds like Philip.

When I read that - on Saturday - I got so emotional. There’s something wonderful and moving about military tributes.

Mike Tindall has spoken about Prince Philip's funeral on The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast with Alex Payne and James Haskell. He stated that the funeral is exactly what Philip wanted: No fuss and get on with it. He used the word "eerie" twice, especially with Philip's cap on the carriage and naval hat on the coffin. He also stated his love for The Queen, who sat alone and led by example in aligning with COVID-19 restriction.

The relevant part started at 1:40 with Alex Payne first contributing and asking Mike Tindall on the funeral and ends at 3:47.

I'm sure the weeks of his final illness were a great trial for her. I don't care what anyone says, no matter how long you may know in your mind that a loved one is dying, in your heart you are never prepared for it.

May God grant her peace, strength and courage to go on without her "strength and stay".
Beautifully stated.

Mike Tindall confirmed that after the funeral (and the walk up to the Castle) the family members went to their cars and left.

Quote:
"Then the funeral finished and it was 'get in your cars and go home', but that is what was allowed, that is what the rules state, so that is what happened."

Y'know, I'm glad Mike Tindall came out and went public with this statement. It shows that even how big and important and well known the Duke of Edinburgh was and the fact that it was a royal family funeral, they still strictly adhered to the guidelines in place and followed them to the letter. To me, this is a prime example of being of service to the people. There's no "do as I say and not as I do" with this family. Setting an example. They could have very easily found loopholes around things for themselves on this occasion but they didn't.

Yes, very true.......... For all the privileges afforded the BRF, it doesn't shield them from loss such as everyone else suffers. In the way that the Queen was so alone, that her family couldn't comfort her and each other........just like so many of us.

Elegant...somber...a flawless service from start to finish.

I wasn’t sure where to put this, but this thread seems appropriate.

How beautiful, and that photo of father and son...������..in a boat, which is so appropriate ������

This is the card - with black borders - you will receive if you wrote to the Prince Charles a condolence letter or card on the occasion of Prince Philip’s death.

I love that photo of Charles and Philip. It seems fitting that he chose a photo of them on the water.

I said the same thing - and my tweet was included in the Daily Mail article ! It's right under the photo of Charles from the funeral........the middle one. I guess I'm infamous, lol.

I love the fact it's a photo of them in a boat.....Charles is looking at his papa like he's the sun and moon.
