He was seen by people around midnight.

If they had any doubts that he had been seen alive after midnight they wouldn't have been able to be so sure since 1952 that it was in the early hours of the 6th rather than the late evening of the 5th.

The CC clearly says 'the early hours of this morning' dated to the 6th February. Any decent doctor can tell within a short period of time when a person has died and that is how they pinpointed the time to around 1.30 - things like the state of rigour etc at the time that he was found.

I also had some friends, now sadly departed, who worked for the royals at the time and they have told me of speaking to staff who saw him after midnight - he was standing at the window and they were walking in the grounds (not my friends but other staff).

There has never been any doubt about the date - only the time - between midnight and 7.30 a.m. but the doctors have always gone with around the 1.00 - 2.00 a.m. given the state of the body at the time the doctors first saw it.
