An intimate portrait in a superb setting.  

Well done Sophie.

Amazing!
They were lovely together, a true couple, real partners!
It also seems to be from a setting of a movie! Backstage... and it is indeed kinda backstage, a side of their life we never got to see until now.

I am just floored by this photo dump. This one is so gorgeous and to think they still had over 17 years still to go together. Her beloved Scotland and his beloved Lilibet "mon chou".

What a lovely observation editor. Yes you can see that they trust the photographer implicitly.

Beautiful pictures being shared, and I love how each of them has been an "off duty" moment that allows us to see the family behind the throne as it were. I can so imagine Philip more and more being just like my grandad.

Jut re my comments about those attending and Edo etc - I completely think everyone who is going should be there and likely Philip asked for them to be there in some way or another. Covid is so hard for things like funerals, especially when you come from a relatively large family like the RF. My gran went into hospital not that long ago and for a while it was very touch and go, during conversations with a friend who had been to a funeral of a friend the rules of only 30 people being allowed hit home - my gran has 8 children of her own and 22 grandchildren - there is no way we would all be able to go when you factor in spouses. Its heartbreaking people have to pick who should attend and who can't and I don't want it to seem as if I was saying Edo or any other -in law shouldn't be there. They should and have every right, I just meant I wouldn't have been surprised if some people offered or indeed did give up their place for others to attend - the fact they is even something needing consideration is heartbreaking.

I will say, we always heard Philip didn't want a big funeral with lots of fuss so in some ways I guess the restrictions may be a blessing - likewise I wonder if HM will be quite happy to go back to her apartment after without having to host a load of dignitaries, foreign royals etc (yes I know they are family) and can instead pour a large gin and dubonnet, raise it to Philip and settle down in front of the TV or with a good book or jigsaw.

That said I do hope they mark his passing in some way when restrictions are eased more, it would be a shame for those charities he worked with, those friends and wider family and others not to mark his passing.

I get that Edo is a rather recent addition to the family, but then again their wedding was the last family event of significance.  The last (or one of the last) photos of Philip released that wasn't some horrid paparazzi attempt to capture him being moved from hospital to hospital.  It was the last time that we really saw him as him, not a sick man.  Additionally, including other spouses because they've been around a bit longer or have had children but not Edo is to isolate Beatrice.  The photos we've seen have really shown how Philip was very much a family man - much more than previously indicated.  He seems to have been very close to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and I doubt he would have wanted to make his beloved granddaughter feel different or indeed unsupported.

I totally agree about not having to host a ton of people. Hopefully she can have a few family members/friends with her and just relax without having to be “The Queen”.

It’s a terrible time to bury a loved one.

Indeed it is; there were 4 people at my Dad’s funeral in December and no gathering afterwards.
As for who is/isn’t invited to the funeral…I imagine Philip was quite aware he was going to die soon and that he made the final decision as to who the 30 allowed mourners would be. At least I like to think so.

I'm so sorry, EAH.  No matter how old we are, we're never ready to say goodbye to our dads.  Hug
