I read through the Order of Service this morning and I have to say, I’m not sure my heart can handle the Lament, Last Post, Reveille, and Action Stations. Break out the tissues because I’m sure the waterworks will be flowing.

And, oh, that photo of all of his insignia on the altar. Stunning and gut-wrenching at the same time.

I'm watching the BBC pre funeral coverage on YouTube (Huw Edwards). It's 8:15 AM here now. I also just read the Order of Service and it will be very emotional to watch. I feel so sad for the Queen.

I love the military personnel parading in the sunshine, everyone looking their best. I'm really glad it's a nice day even if it's a sad occasion.

It's a beautiful sunny spring day right across the country. OK, the weather isn't going to make the Queen feel any better, but it feels as if the sun and blue sky have turned out to do Prince Philip proud.

The BBC News Special shown between 10-11 this morning featured an interview with one of Philips Great- Nieces Princess Xenia of Hohenlohe-Langenburg who’s brother is attending the funeral. Lovely lovely interview which is probably on iPlayer.

The Princess had some lovely words about her great uncle.
