Charles crying Cry


His face appeared very, very red compared to everyone else’s.

What do you mean by that? He’s in direct sunlight, no?

Nothing sinister. Everyone was in direct sunlight, but his face was just noticeably much redder than everyone else’s.

Yes, I notice he was very red faced the whole time. So they are saying the Queen had 15 people back afterwards. https://www.express.co.uk...harry-prince-William-kate. Clearly:
Charles and Camilla
Anne and Tim
Andrew
Edward and Sophie
Peter
William and Kate
Eugenie
Beatrice
Zara
+2

What is your guess?

I’m sorry if a little off topic, but read down thru the Express link listed a couple of posts back and got a little incensed by the commentary of the CBS broadcaster, Gayle King, aka Oprah’s best friend.  Since when does Gayle King become the ultimate knowledge on William and Harry’s relationship and of all days, couldn’t they leave this topic alone!  Let the Queen and her family have their day without all this stupid UK and US tabloid and broadcasting, going on and on about this!  Just leave it alone already and let them heal!! 😡

All right, Eternal Father Strong To Save.  I’m in pieces now.

Did this song make anyone else think of the movie Titanic? 🤭 It was the first time I heard it. This choir did a beautiful job.

Not me.  A friend of mine was the first female graduate of the US Naval Academy to die in the line of duty.  Her funeral at Annapolis was wrecking but we sang this.  I grew up in a Navy family so I considered it disrespectful (rising to the level of Stolen Valor) for the movie to use it.  Anything for a buck, eh Cameron?  

It's quite an old hymn, and it was actually sung at the Sunday morning church service aboard the Titanic, per survivors.  So Cameron, far from seeking a buck, was just being historically accurate.

I fully realize that.  I still think it was vulgar and cheap of Cameron.  My family has served since the War of 1812, and hearing Winslet, who I otherwise like, warble her way through something I consider genuinely sacred is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

I agree Curtains. Cameron knew that more than one historical inaccuracy was in the movie, but decided to just let it be, so it isn’t hard to believe that he would disrespect a navy song. Personally I hated that “throw a huge piece of blue plastic jewelry that looked like a cheap knockoff of the Hope Diamond” into the ocean” ending.

Anyway, to get back on topic, what a horribly difficult day for this family and I wish them peace and healing.

In regards to the wake of up to 15 people - up to 6 people can meet outside in a garden or public park.  It could well be that HM hosted those who would have to leave knowing full well that she will see her family in the coming days e.g. HM hosted the likes of the German relatives, the Kents and Duke of Gloucester, Penny Brabourn, maybe even her children and spouses and left the grandchildren to have up to 6 in a garden somewhere e.g. Royal Lodge.

Who knows.

It was a lovely service, sorry for all of you who watched this in CNN, I screened the whole thing on Youtube via the BBC, just silence, no comment was needed. Even if this was a very personal moment, lowkey because the DoE wanted this way plus the pandemic, it was beautifully done, the Windsor do know how to do this things. I managed to pull it together until the God Save The Queen, I could tell some of them were crying, looking at Sophie was hard for she cried during most of the service. It is nice to remember from to time they are human, people who seldom show any emotion like Charles or Anne looked devastated. The DoE was difficult at times but such a character as well, he hated being forced to play a role and that was what made him so genuine, that is why it made me feel so sad for HM, she looked frail, even her clothes looked big on her.

I mean, we all have partners, right? But 70 b... years, that is a life. You can say what they want about them, or feel as you please, but they managed to pull themselves through a lot, and be there for each other.

He shall be missed, and I hope the HM reigns for a bit more. Britain needs stability, the family issues, brexit, the pandemic, Scotland wanted independence and now losing Philip, when you think about it, her twilight years should had been calmer but it was the opposite way around, she couldn't catch a break in the last 5 years, and I pity her.  Sad

He’s always ruddy. I think he has rosacae and is the most outdoorsy royal as well...

It was a beautiful ceremony.

Charles just seemed broken. I guess all the people who think that he's just been waiting for his parents to die because he hates them and wants the throne can see how wrong they've been

I didn't see the German relatives, even thought their presence was announced.

I’ve never, not once in decades of royal-reading, seen that written about Charles. Do you recall where? Or was it just Twitter? 😬
