I have no idea where this should go, but it's a fascinating picture.

As some of you know I am spending my retirement trying to do an analysis of the CC from the beginning to the present. I decided to start in 1952 - at the start of the Queen's reign and yesterday I was doing February, 1952 when something struck me:

The King died on the 6th - noted in the CC:

6th
COURT CIRCULAR
Buckingham Palace
The King passed peacefully away in his sleep early this morning.


There was a service at Sandringham before his coffin left to go to London to be placed in Westminster Hall:

11th
COURT CIRCULAR
Buckingham Palace
The Queen, with The Queen Mother, The Princess Margaret, The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of Gloucester, was present at a private Service for His late Majesty in Sandringham Church this morning.

The Coffin was conveyed to Wolferton Railway Station, followed by The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of Gloucester, and thence by special train to King's Cross Railway Station.

The Coffin, surmounted by the Imperial Crown, was placed upon a Gun Carriage drawn by The King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, and conveyed to Westminster Hall, followed by The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of Gloucester and by Members of His late Majesty's Household.

Upon arrival at Westminster Hall the Coffin was received by the Archbishop of York, the Marquess of Cholmondeley (Lord Great Chamberlain), the Duke of Norfolk (Earl Marshal), and the Right Hon. David Eccles, M.P. (Minister of Works), and borne into the Hall by a bearer party of The King's Company, Grenadier Guards.

The Queen, with The Queen Mother, Queen Mary, The Princess Margaret, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Princess Royal, The Duchess of Kent and The Duke of Kent, followed immediately behind the Coffin.

A short Service was conducted by the Archbishop of York.


Then there is this for the day of the funeral itself:

15th
COURT CIRCULAR
Buckingham Palace
The Funeral of His late Majesty King George the Sixth took place to-day at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

The Queen, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, The Princess Margaret and other Members of the Royal Family, together with the Sovereigns, Heads of States and Foreign Representatives, were present.


When I then compare the detail about the funeral of Lord Louis Mountbatten, or Princess Alice of Athlone I find that sad. They had much more detail about the day itself.

God save the king sung by 13-year old Julie Andrews to king George VI in 1948.



And she is still around. It's a pity her voice has been damaged or she could sing it to the new king almost 75 years later...
