I watched quite a bit of the funeral. Tried not to - but well, really had to.
First thoughts -
We do these things rather well don't we?
Thirty guests - well yes, but hundreds of miltary.
Shame they couldn't have found a space for at least one 'ordinary person' who wasn't one of the elite. Could have replaced one of the Germans that no one has ever heard of perhaps. Shows they think more of minor European royals than the British people?
I think they could have squeezed Boris in somewhere. He's just had his haircut and all.
Harry met William, and spoke to him. I do hope it was spontaneous and not just PR. They say he was disrepectful coming out and slapped his racecard against his leg. Oh dear.
That rugby player held his wife's hand as they came out. That will never do - showing a normal human reaction. I liked it though.
The four person choir was good -the rest can expect their P45's shortly I'd say.
The words spoken by the Clergy were even more ridiculous than usual. Does anyone listen to it all, and really believe any of it now?
Good as far as it went, but I think I still prefer Princess Margaret's method - service then just quietly away to Slough Crematorium - just up from the old dog track.
