I suspect the family may mingle for a moment or two before heading their separate ways, no wake will have been planned.

Such a moving service, but utterly heartbreaking to see the queen alone. That brought tears to my eyes.

It was beautiful when the bagpipe faded.

Yes, Hester. I have new respect for him. I used to just notice the ďgaffes.Ē But all the articles about him being warm, supportive, and humorously disarming charmed me. I have enormous respect for him and his mother.

He was well loved by the people all men are charged to care for in their lives, their family. The measure of the man.

It may be a fanciful hope but I would love to get a little tribute from the great-grandchildren in some way. The photos that the family has released show that Philip was not only a loving grandfather, but made sure to spend time with his great-grandchildren as well.

All right, Eternal Father Strong To Save.  Iím 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.

Can you imagine how surreal it must be for the queen?

They had a good, long run.

I love the picture they shared that Sophie took at balmoral, such natural smiles.

12 years ago in two weeks, I buried my husband. It was surreal.

I am so sorry for your loss. In light of your post, I agree that it seems disrespectful for the movie to use it.

IIRC Eternal Father was sung on Titanic as part of the religious services. The hymn is known to be synonymous with the sea and the Navy. I think the use of the hymn in the film was one brief moment of historical accuracy, though ofc the words were utilised for dramatic effect in the film.

Utterly beautiful service, I'm heartbroken. My auntie, who is also my Godmother, passed away suddenly on Thursday. I'm feeling a lot of emotions right now, but the funeral service, Philip's choice of readings and music was comforting to me, and I'm sure that was an intention of him for his family too.

Seeing the Queen so alone like that was heartbreaking. She looked so frail, so broken. But she carried that refined dignity that is synonymous with her and Philip's persona and philosophy.

The service was filmed in a very dignified manner, cutting away at the most emotional moments to allow the family to grieve in private. Kate was very moved too during the service, I noticed, as well as Charles, Sophie and others.

The walk after the service reminded us all that they are still a family, despite their status and titles. It was nice to see Earl Snowden comfort Peter Philips, and the family talk among themselves. They seemed to have sighed a breath and relax after they left the Chapel, as we all do after funeral services.

I so hope in the future that the Queen, her children and grandchildren are supported and support one another.

It seems a lot of us have lost so much in the last year. This is a punch in the gut for some reason, just seeing the photos. Knowing all we have permanently lost as of last year, and the fact is we as humans cannot properly grieve or send off our loved ones which helps with the grief and closure - so it sits like an open wound salt rubbed into it every day.

 Hug my lovely disher family, I do care deeply for you all

I know this is hardly the biggest issue of the day, but if anyone has visited Windsor Castle, perhaps they know the answer to this question, as it pops into my head every time I watch a service from Windsor: how is it that the family enters the chapel from a door to the right of the altar but then appear from the left?
