Do we know for sure that he won't be moved there? I assume the most practical thing was to have him be lowered into whatever happened to be below the quire. I guess the 'rooms' below St George's Chapel are connected, so the coffin could be moved. There will be some more that needs to be done than just lower the coffin (such as removing his standard, his hat and sword); he will be put into a specific spot - whether that will be a temporary or final one is anybody's guess (or has this been confirmed by the Palace?).

There really haven't been very many televised British royal funerals. The Queen Mother, Diana...Lord Mountbatten if you want to include him in that category, I think that might be it. And none of them were interred as part of the funeral service.

I think the plan is he will be moved there when the Queen dies. I guess they are looking at it practically and why mess the chapel up twice and then have to re-do the memorial stone.

This is the first time the internment has been done on camera as such, usually there is a larger service at Westminster abbey then a more intimate family only internment service or the whole funeral it at Windsor in private.

Ah, thanks for the explanation. That is a difference from how it's being done here. That makes sense.

I think so. St. George's doesn't have a girls choir and neither does WA. But I couldn't say for sure if they had any female lay clerks (adult choir members) I don't think so, although St Paul's does.

This is the most encouraging thing to me, the family truly coming together as a family, not wanting to be separated ... This was Charles’ idea. and I can’t help thinking of his last conversation with his father, about how he’s to lead the family going forward. This was, to me, significant, that he’s emphasizing family

Just out of interest - was Princess Alexandra there? I didn't see her in any of the coverage.

Yes. Seated "between" the Duke of Kent and the Countess Mountbatten of Burma.

It was her loneliest journey, but she was not alone, writes Hannah Furness. In her darkest day on public duty, the Queen had her loyal lady-in-waiting by her side, Lady Susan Hussey.

Carried in the State Bentley for the short journey from the Sovereign’s Entrance of Windsor Castle to the Galilee Porch of St George’s Chapel, the Queen and Lady Susan travelled in companionable silence.

In quiet contemplation, with rugs over their knees, the two women faced the cameras and the watching world with dignified calm.

The Queen had personally asked Lady Susan to join her for the journey, as she prepared to say farewell to her husband of 73 years.

One of a close inner circle of ladies-in-waiting, Lady Susan has been by the Queen’s side since the birth of Prince Andrew, when she joined the royal household to help answer a flood of letters.

The Funeral of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

The music was lovely, but it was very sad to see the Queen on her own. She seemed to hesitate for a few moments before she went into the chapel ... it was probably just according to plan, but it was as if she was waiting for Camilla and Kate to come through the doors behind her.


If we’re thinking about the same moment, I thought she seemed to be turning and looking at something related to the procession. But maybe she was waiting for Camilla and Catherine.

It was sad to see her on her own. Mostly she was looking down, but there was one photo I saw of her looking up, and her eyes were heartbreakingly sad. Eyes are truly windows to the soul. That was apparent with everyone today.

Looks like it was a first then. A small bit of royal history made today.

I can't help but think the Queen looks like she's aged a decade in the last week. And both Charles and William look heartbroken. Philip clearly meant so much to that entire family. The loss of him has obviously been devastating.

I love that they chose to walk back to the castle. I imagine that was due to the weather being so nice.

I also noticed Sophie link arms with Edward on the walk back. Nice little touch. Nice to see the family chatting and being a normal family. It's a shame they couldn't have a proper family gathering for this due to the current pandemic but nice to see them all walking back.
