Thank you. That does not appear to be an ermine border.

I agree with Curryong. There was not a lot of precedent on how to deal with a divorced spouse and in the end Diana was afforded royal trappings because she was the mother of a (presumably) future King. Not everyone involved agreed with him, but it was Charles who led the charge and who ultimately prevailed.

I sincerely agreed with Charles. He made sure that Diana was given the full acknowledgment of her remaining in her role as mother to princes of the UK. I don't think I've ever respected Charles as much as I did during that tragic week.

That standard has indeed an ermine border, the white border with the recurring black symbol represents the ermine border

I found this article regarding Diana,Princess of Wales and Royal Standard.

'How strict Royal protocol was BROKEN when Diana's body was brought home to UK'

Isn't the ermine border on the linen Royal Standard symbolic? I can't imagine an army of people sewing a border of fur onto cloth nowadays.

In the #2 post of this thread Ish explains the various Royal Standards and states that Diana did have a Standard with an ermine border at her funeral.

This may seem a strange observation but in the white border of the Standard shown in photos, as below
https://www.thoughtco.com/princess-d...uneral-3528738

the small black markings of the sort that are on ermine robes appear to be there on the border.

If the royal standard with an ermine border was allowed with Diana as she was the mother of two Princes of the UK, would the same apply to Sarah, Duchess of York as she is the mother of two Princesses of the UK?

One must look at everything that happened at Diana's funeral has an exception rather than a rule for ex wives of princes. She had a quasi state funeral, basically because Charles pushed for it, given that she was the mother of a future monarch

I imagine it's already been decided that she won't have the royal standard because she isn't an HRH. The Duchess of Windsor wasn't an HRH & she didn't have a royal standard. It could be argued that Diana was different because she was the mother of a future king.
