      @Veronica Thanicatt I bet you are Catholic, right?
      People must simply: --believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins
      --accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior
      --ask Him to come into our hearts
      --have a loving relationship with Him
      --live our lives for Him, through our action and deeds, and according to His Word.
      Only each person can determine whether they believe in Him, and accept Him for what He has done for us. Nothing we say or do or pray can affect His decision on this regarding other people--only our individual selves.
      I wish it could be done for those we fear won't go to Heaven, but it can't. It is only between Him and the person. That is why He created us with free will. He wants people who chose to be with Him.
      It would be a slippery slope if we were able to do that. Then, there would be a certain number of people in Heaven who wouldn't want to be. Free will in choosing to love Him, is why He created us in the first place.

    Seeing HMTQ's children took a lot out of me. It doesn't matter how old you are, losing your parent at any age hurts. Yes, the older they are may shorten the grieving period but you will grieve and you won't be the same after. My condolences to HRH Prince Edward. As the baby when HMTQ was more seasoned into her duties as queen, Prince Edward would have had a different experience of HMTQ than Charles. I'm truly sorry for their loss. RIP YM.

    Crying in public is not a shame even for the Royal Family, I've cried every day since hearing about the passing of her Majesty and I'm not related to the Crown. It takes a man to cry. My father served her Majesty in the Royal Engineers as his Father did for King George also my Mothers father and my great Uncles during the War .

      @No Matusi I think that you will find many of the colonies became such in Victoria's reign or long before in Elizabeth 1st time and that of James 2nd.
      I dont agree with it but many countries did it throughout history.
      Queen Elizabeth ll simply inherited them. The world was a very different place at the start of her reign but her reign is more known for giving colonised countries back their independence.
      Britain itself has been invaded and taken over many since history was first recorded. You can't blame colonisation on one person. Its an attitude and way of thinking that is thankfully disappearing here but still rampart in many other countries. Might i suggest that instead of hating one person, and blaming them..you read up and study history so that you can change your own attitude that seems to stem from ignorance of the facts. .and hatred.

    I think they all held up remarkably well, considering they were being watched and scrutinized by commentators from around the world. That is especially why I am happy the final service was held in private, away from the public eye. The public had their public moments, and the family deserved their private moment.

      I felt sick to my stomach the day the Queen died. I have a mast cell disease and had to take extra meds to keep it from flaring up as it does during emotional distress. I got choked up but quite honestly I have a 5 year old and I don’t want her to be upset/worried so I kept it together.
      My husband was at work so we were alone. Not breaking down is being seen by a lot of ppl in these comments as uncaring and that is likely the opposite of what happened. Sometimes you can’t help it and I get that but you should try as an adult not to make the ppl you love worry about you and I think that’s what a lot of royals were doing knowing ppl that rely on them we’re watching.

    As an American, I wish I could be so proud and loyal to our own presidents. I felt a sense of pride for these people to hold their Queen to such a high thrown as she deserved I suppose. I also saw her as a human finally. As a mother, grandmother. I felt their sorrow. God Bless all. And I hood that we can one day have a better United States.

    • Clarinda Victor

      I'm from SA and feel the same way abt our presidents. The Queen's funeral was so moving and heartfelt and what made it more special was how the British people reacted, honoring their beloved queen with such dignity and pride. She surely looked down from heaven, with that beautiful smile of her's, on her face.

    Huge respect to the RF. Having to share /show their emotions during the funeral of their own mother., Grandmother , great grandmother etc must make their pain and grief so much worse.

      @No Matusi The Queen was not a thief. The jewels were sold by others and eventually gifted. You scream about being stolen when previous owners lost them. The one from India was taken after it was signed over. British being mean, probably, but the treaty was legal. Also, who does it really belong to? You? Sorry, but you shouldn’t be cruel and bitter. It really isn’t worth it and doesn’t belong to you.

      @Carla Dean Keeping stolen goods make you a thief. You can be jailed for keeping stolen stuff. She got another diamond that was stolen from India 'Koh-i-Noor Diamond'

    • Carla Dean
      Carla Dean 6 days ago +3

      @No Matusi She inherited it, she didn't steal it. It was bought by the SA Transvaal Co, then gifted (via Botha) to Edward VII (the Queen's Great Grandfather) It then passed to Queen Mary who gifted it to Queen Elizabeth II. So who was it stolen from, the original mine owner, the Transvaal Co? It would never have belonged to the African people that's for sure. If they wanted this bought and paid for diamond back that badly the SA Government should've reclaimed it. If you want to spew hatred at anyone, Botha is your man.
      Do your homework ffs.

    My brother is 14 years younger then I, and 19 years younger than our oldest sibling. With both of our parents now gone, my younger brother has often stated that he wished he had more time with them. He is 49 and the other eight of us are all 60 and over. He feels we had a lot more time with mom and dad. It's a strange feeling, too that baby brother does not share any of our early childhood memories. He was basically raised as an only child. When I saw the pictures of Edward, I wondered if he too wished he had more time with his parents.

    She may be the face I can't forget
    A trace of pleasure or regret
    May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
    She may be the song that summer sings
    May be the chill that autumn brings
    May be a hundred different things
    Within the measure of a day
    She who always seems so happy in a crowd
    Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
    No one's allowed to see them when they cry
    She may be the love that cannot hope to last
    May come to me from shadows of the past
    That I'll remember till the day I die

    Man, I still have outbursts. You never get over the loss of your mom and dad. It's devastatingly heartbreaking and a deep bellowing from pain never experienced before.
    I couldn't imagine how they feel considering they were blessed to have her by their side their whole life. Some over 70 years.
    It takes years for some to join the world again.
    I believe these days of mourning are important for EVERY FAMILY.
    Because when a loved one passes, you get rocketed into another deminsion some in shock while the world keeps moving at its fast pace. And you're so in another place. It's like hold up, pump the breaks yo.

    Watching the final part of this funeral I got a strong emotion just like when it was my mother's funeral 3 years ago. I wasn't aware the members were so moved they were in tears but the sadness transmitted through the airwaves that I picked it up.
    Sadly, the queen is gone but a person can't live forever. This occasion has brought out the human side of this monarch family, letting down the traditional expectations that they must be perfect none humans or I guess it was to show strength but today we know strength is shown in other ways and for a royal family to show love together for one same person they broke that traditional cold ice expectations of a monarch family. Just beautiful.

    This show of deep emotion from the Royal Family broke my heart! Little Princess Charlotte was the saddest part. No child should have to feel this sadness. This all brought back memories of my grandmother, and mother's passing. God bless all.

    Edward has always been a very sweet and honest person. They all wept I think but I think none of them could really start grieving until the funeral ended and they could withdraw. It must be incredibly hard to grieve in public.

    Good for Edward for not pretending he isn't human like the rest of us!👍🏻 He's lost both his parents less than a year and a half apart. He has every right to show his emotions.
    He & the formidable but lovely Sophie are a masterclass in loyalty, mindfulness and class. They have raised two beautiful well-balanced well-behaved children. Good on them, what a beautiful family!!👍🏻👏🏻👌🏻🐾🌈☮️🇨🇦

    Edward is the youngest and probably spent a bit more time with his mother than the oldest children. He would have had a very special attachment to her, and to his father, as the youngest. How difficult it was for the whole family to remain dignified and composed in public when they must have been suffering terribly. Seeing the public weeping and grieving certainly affected them even more. Bless them all as they adjust and go on.

    I also said goodbye to my own mother about a month earlier and thankfully my show of grief and emotion was left at the funeral, only to be reflected upon by myself in private! The way it should be.
    It's not an outburst, it's raw sadness and completely normal.

    What is forgotten in the video is that Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Forfar, not only comforted Prince Edward, but also did the same with Princess Charlotte. HM's favorite daughter-in-law lived up to the expectations of a wife, mother, and even great-aunt and in my mind, is an angel to many. And yes, there is nothing wrong with a 73-year old monarch shedding a tear or two as his mother's death was so sudden (in the eyes of many), from commissioning a new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to passing within a span of 3 days is quite shocking to many, even though we have been preparing for that very day for many, many years.

    They were all lucky to have their mom, grandmother, and great-grand mother for as long as they did. Not many people do. I very much wish my mom or dad live an extra 11 years. My mom died at 85. she had dementia for almost 2 years so if very much felt that we lost her earlier especially caring for her by ourselves, my sister and I.

    My mother also recently passed away, early last month. I am still very sad about it, but also very angry at the funeral home because of what they did to me.
    My mother lives several states away. I used to live in the same state as her for over a decade, but moved away when I got married a few years ago, due to my husband's job. When my mother unexpectedly passed away, I heard about it through a friend that still lives in the same town as her. I had to call all the funeral homes to verify if it was true, and sadly it was. I was informed by one particular funeral home that they would keep me updated with everything, as they were the funeral home my mother had pre-picked out. My mother had a pre-paid funeral, so she had already paid for all her funeral expenses ahead of time. All that needed to be done were some minor details, such as picking out the specific types of flowers, picking out any songs to be played at her funeral, writing her obituary & having it published in the local newspaper, etc. I got to work, on my end, writing a beautiful obituary for my mother's to be submitted to the funeral home, sho she can be remember in print forever.
    My mother's most recent husband also passed away, about 1.5 years prior to her own passing. They married later in life, around her 50's, because my biological father passed away when I was 5 years old. At the time of her passing, she was living off of disability due to some health conditions (early-onset dementia, immune issues, thyroid problems, etc.). She was still independent enough to live on her own, she just couldn't drive, or manage her own bank account, & had care givers check in on her.
    My mother, even though she had some health problems, obviously wasn't expecting to pass away so soon, let alone unexpectedly, because she didn't have a Last Will & Testament. And, the only reason she had a pre-paid funeral was because, when her recent husband passed away, he actually left it in HIS will to make sure she would have all her funeral expenses paid for with his money.
    Anyway, long story short, my mother's ex-step father, who never legally adopted my mother or had custody of her when she was a minor, and who wasn't even married to my grandmother when my grandmother died (my grandmother had remarried over THREE decades prior!), well he showed up at the funeral home, claimed to be her "father," and took over everything, in regards to all the little details that needed to be completed to start & complete my mother's funeral.
    I kept waiting for the funeral home to call me with updates, and they didn't.
    After about four days of not hearing anything from the funeral home, I started calling the funeral home myself, wanting to know what was going on with my mother, and her funeral, and how I could help. I also needed to know, ahead of time, when the funeral was, so I could make arrangements for travel; I explained I lived several states away, and I would have to either book a flight or drive to get there, but would need several days notice either way.
    The funeral home told me her "father" was taking care of all the arrangements. I explained to the funeral home that her father had passed away along time ago, so whoever was their claiming to her father was NOT her father, and he was the ex-step father. This ex-step father made a point to make funeral arrangements that went against all the wishes of my mother too. The funeral home never asked for verification that he was here "father" or anything, they just took his word for it because, "he knew a lot about her, so he seemed legit," was their explanation." . . . What?
    To make matters worse, even AFTER I told the funeral home all this, they continue to work with the ex-step dad! Not once did the funeral home ever return any of my phones & promised. They decided NOT to published her obituary I wrote because the ex-step father didn't like it, nor did he want any music being played.
    The worst part of this is, the funeral home never informed me of my mother's own funeral home. I called them, on my own time, to inquire about the funeral. The person that told me, "oh, it's 1st thing tomorrow morning." They KNEW I wasn't going to make it on time, because they were made very well aware of the fact that I live far away. And if I didn't call that day, would they have ever had the courtesy to even tell me after they buried mother? 💔😢

  • PollyAnna

    Prince Edward showed a lot of courage by releasing some of his emotions of grief. Why is it that society defines strength as not showing emotions, define being strong if you don’t cry… crying in any environment and for any reason, whether it is for a known reason or simply tears just fall, is being strong. When children are young, like 3 or 4, they might fall over and start to cry. A parent has several choices in their reaction and each choice will define that child’s emotional maturity from there onwards - 1) child cries, parent hugs them letting them cry completely without setting a limit to how long the child cries. 2) child cries, parent hugs them then says there there, you’re ok now, hush hush, child stops as child learns crying is ok but only if you have a few tears 3) child cries, parent laughs as parent turns it into a joke by saying oh no, you made a hole in the pavement when you fell, come and look. Parent uses humour to deflect child from being emotional teaching child crying isn’t really acceptable and it’s best to find distractions or humour no matter what 4) child cries, parent gets frustrated and tells child directly to stop crying, you’re ok, you’re not hurt/you’re not bleeding, come on grow up. 5) child falls over and doesn’t cry at all because they’ve already learnt by age 4 that crying isn’t healthy or acceptable or allowed. Why is it society is afraid of tears, afraid of emotions. In order to encourage emotional regulation we need to encourage all emotions, to help a child recognise their emotions, to sit with their emotions, to have them and to define them.
    Good on Prince Edward, George, Charlotte, Sophie , Anne, Charles, William, Catherine, Zara, Mike, Andrew, Charles, …etc… for showing their emotions

I know what if feels like to lose, one at a time, each of my recent ancestors. The first was a great grandparent when I was 5 and the last was my mother when I was 47.
