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?

I visited Windsor exactly two years ago, the chapel and the castle. Surreal!

There is a corridor/small hall behind the altar that allows you to leave from the left inside the chapel and emerge of the right side door to go outside.

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

Sending love to all the Dishers who have had their own personal grief and losses amplified by the loss of Prince Philip.  Funerals for others, even if we didn't know them personally, always stir up that latent grief that never goes away...just gets a little more hidden as the time goes on.  And especially sending my love to those of you who have recently lost dear ones and have had your grieving traditions dictated and curtailed by Covid.

Sorry if OT, but nice to see the brothers walking and talking together

I...kind of donít think they are.  I think Harry is speaking to Catherine & vice versa.  I think William is doing the endless adjusting of his attire, as he did one time before (adjusting his scarf endlessly to avoid another conversation).

We'll find out for sure from Good Morning America at some point, including details of what  Snare they spoke about.  

Did anyone else notice how when leaving the chapel, Harry just walked past the altar and didn't even glance at the orders placed there, or bow his head.  His aunt Anne who was directly in front of him, did so.  I saw that William did, too.  It was a tasteful, not to mention respectful, gesture I thought.

Well that's just lovely.  

There's a photo on GettyImages of Sophie wiping her nose during the ceremony.  I like those moments as you remember they're family and what they've lost.
