Watching on BBC 1. Wish Huw would shut up and let us listen to the bands/watch them March.

Go over to ITV!

Thank you! Much better!

I had a tear up at his gloves on his carriage. This feels very personal for a royal funeral.

Yes, that was sad. I wonder what was in the plastic bottle with the red lid?
I'm so glad it's not pouring down today.

I thought his jar of treats for the horses the80sweregreat?

IamnotH Sat 17-Apr-21 14:29:05

I thought treats too.

I hope the family can take some comfort in as private and intimate a funeral it was ever going to be.

It's very emotional.

I'm bawling my eyes out

SoupDragon Sat 17-Apr-21 14:41:53

I love that he planned everything about his own funeral, even down to designing a landrover hearse

Horehound Sat 17-Apr-21 14:42:29

Yeah it's definitely a nice touch

RainingBatsAndFrogs Sat 17-Apr-21 14:44:43

Anne looks s distressed 🙁

the80sweregreat Sat 17-Apr-21 14:44:58

It's been so beautifully arranged.

RainingBatsAndFrogs Sat 17-Apr-21 14:45:16

Poor queen, not to have family holding her hands.

Justmuddlingalong Sat 17-Apr-21 14:45:31

Poor Liz 😢

MissMarplesGoddaughter Sat 17-Apr-21 14:45:57

I'm so glad the Queen isn't alone in her limo

Chunkymenrock Sat 17-Apr-21 14:47:36

The beautiful fell ponies, and the carriage with his cap, scarf and gloves was so poignant. Its so respectful and dignified. So sad.

Pupster21 Sat 17-Apr-21 14:47:47

Aw Queenie wiping her tears

Jesus Harry looks fantastic

CauliflowerCheese30 Sat 17-Apr-21 14:48:26

Prince Charles looks visibly upset bless him

SoupDragon Sat 17-Apr-21 14:48:37

There is no way I could have done this walk at my fathers funeral 🙁

KM38 Sat 17-Apr-21 14:48:41

Beautiful ceremony so far. It’s lovely to see such personal touches too ❤️

BloomingBlooms Sat 17-Apr-21 14:48:49

So poignant that the Queen is coming last, behind the Duke when it was always the other way round.

popcorndiva Sat 17-Apr-21 14:49:42

It's a lovely funeral feels very personal and less pomp and circumstance. I teared up at the cap in the carriage then when I vowed to thee my country played

Same here. I couldn't do a reading either..... My DCs did it for me.
