Its not “British” to brag “Patriotism”…..
Its not “British” to brag “Patriotism”…..but there is not another country that can hold a candle to our ability to a flaunt ceremonial “show”. We can do “BIG” – you have seen it before with all the royal weddings and funerals of the past. Now, in the middle of a covid pandemic, we have shown we can do credit to the old Duke with a funeral that he mostly designed himself!
The Queen would would not have approved of breaking the covid rules…..people would say “It’s one rule for us and another for the Royals” so just 30 people were allowed to the funeral, all socially distanced and masked.
The Duke didn’t want fuss – from his idea to have his coffin on his beloved Land Rover, to the stunning brilliance of the Choir of just four, I thought the whole event was poignant and apt. The elegant simplicity delivered a powerful effect?
People around the world will have watched with interest and one day they will come back and we will visit Windsor again.
Let’s Tour England !
