Didn't he specifically call her "mon chou" since it is the French who use that term of endearment? At any rate it is fun to hear about the pet names and nicknames. Did anyone ever call her Lily? What's the origin of Lilibet because it's interesting how Elizabeth became Lilibet which sounds like a name an older but still young sibling would give her out of a mispronouncement. Otherwise Lily or Beth or Liz would be more common.

You'd be surprised by the amount of nicknames you can get out of a name. Elizabeth alone you can have Liz, Lizzie, Beth, Betty, Eliza, Libby, Lilibet, Liza...

And it's interesting how some nicknames come out of names you'd never expect. It's easy to see how Charlie comes from Charles but Peggy from Margaret? Names are so fascinating!

It's sad for her, and we feel for her, but what she experiences now is not different to what other people do too.
Losing someone you love is always so very hard.
Yes, nobody will call her "mon chou" anymore, or kiss her good night like a lover did, but that happened to my grandmothers just as well, it is so heartbreakingly normal. And it is also normal that with each loved one gone, shared moments are gone as well, at her age, she is not the only one who is the last of her generation in her family - one is usually the last one.
But she had more than a lifetime with him, more memories than many other people are granted. I think she has a lot to be grateful for...

You are right, and I'm sure she is. Smiley

That's what I liked about the funeral. Yes it was sad that due to restrictions, Philip wasn't given the full funeral he deserved, but I think the scaled down funeral actually made them more human and relatable. They have to follow guidelines just like everyone else, and somehow seeing their emotion and grief made people realize that they love and lose just like the rest of us.

When Margaret was a very little girl, she couldn’t say Elizabeth, it was coming out as Lilibet and it stuck. Remember the letters she was writting to her grandmother signed Lilibet?

And Elizabeth was calling Margaret Rose - Rosebud.

I feel like the stripped down funeral was a real PR win, even if it only looked the way it did because of covid. It put the focus on the family in a way that a state funeral wouldn't have done, while still keeping elements of tradition that make the BRF royal. It also felt historical to me the same way that HM had to save ration coupons for her wedding dress and how her parents toured bombed out parts of London - reinforces that she is with her subjects in hard times too.

It would be "ma choue," because feminine.  Chou/e means cabbage.

I don’t think “ma choue” is a thing! 😹 Chou is a masculine word in French...

It's very Australian to add the "zz" to names - Hazza, Dazza, Bazza, Shazza. I have no idea why!!!

I've never heard of Tel for Terence though (Terry, yes).

Harry from Henry?

Henry VIII was known as Hal. And the two American Henrys I know are Hank.

My great aunt was Marjorie Eleanor, but was known as Molly.

And I'm sure there has been a discussion somewhere else about (Katie) Scarlett O'hara's sisters in Gone with the Wind - Susan Elinor ("Suellen") and Caroline Irene ("Carreen").

There was a service in memory of Philip, in New Zealand. It sounded lovely!

https://www.dailymail.co....ervice-Prince-Philip.html

New Zealand Governor General describes the Duke of Edinburgh as one of the 'unchanging stars of the sky' in a memorial service

Quote
New Zealand has farewelled Prince Philip in a reverential memorial service at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul.

Around 500 people attended a service rich in pomp, song and prayer on Wednesday in a cathedral adorned with British and Kiwi insignia.
Quote
Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy gave the tribute, saying he was a bedrock of the monarchy.

'His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was a loyal companion and beloved support to Her Majesty the Queen for more than 70 years,' Dame Reddy said.

'For many of us, he has, like the Queen, always been there.

'We could perhaps be forgiven for seeing him as one of the unchanging stars in our sky.'

The venue was a fitting one: the Queen laid the foundation stone to the cathedral in 1954, and the couple visited three times more on official visits, most recently on their final trip to 2002.
