For me, it wasn't the fact of who was the closest relative of William's that supported Child Bereavement UK but the fact that the support thread ran though his family in several ways. It was one of Countess Mountbatten's charities she supported.

Thanks for the correction on when the organization started and by whom though.

I see Prince Andrew is sporting a black eye at the funeral. What fight has he been in?

I wonder why Camilla didn't accompany Charles? Is she doing engagements elsewhere?

Yes - she attended with her daughter India Hicks - her picture is in the Daily Mail coverage of the funeral.

Her resemblance to the late Countess seems to become more marked as she ages?

Yes, if you scroll half way down you will find a photo of her and one of India.

Condolences to her extended family. She was quite well loved and respected. Charles was clearly quite close.

Funerals are always sad, but for a 93 year old a little less. She has lived a long full life. And can be happy to think her reunited with her husband, her granddaughter, her dad and of course her Nicholas. Died if old age, surrounded by her loved ones, and now reunited with those she lost.

Innocent mistake anyone could make

Yeah right up there with the fail. At least if Sarah, you could think they meant to say Princess Margarets daughter and part just got left out.

These photos [from yesterday's funeral show clearly the emotion felt at the loss of this extraordinary Woman.
A woman who might easily have descended into bitterness following the murder of her Father and son, [and her own resultant permanent disability] but who instead chose to devote the remainder of her life tirelessly helping others similarly struck by tragedy.
May she rest in Peace.
