    Well we do pomp and ceremony well don't we?

    I didn't plan to watch any of it but did and to be honest I am glad I did.

    Whatever your take on the Royal Family today was a piece of history.

    Not a Royalist by any stretch but to see the military precision of every part of the event today and how everything went like clockwork made me proud to be British.

    It's easy to forget that she was a dearly loved Mother and Grandmother etc.

    RIP Elizabeth II

    Doesn't give us mere subjects much hope for the future
    Best not to criticise or draw attention to any short comings tho
    They've had a hard life after all
    Agree fair play to the Queen things will be much different now

    Agree -had to look up what cosplay was and its meaning is defined as:
    1. the practice of dressing up as a character from a film, book, or video game.
    How that relates to todays proceedings is anyone's guess.

    Most of us plebs are more worried about heating our homes this winter and putting food on the table than listen to Huw Edwards drone on about how wonderful her maj was.

    Am sure those who are deciding whether to heat their house or feed their kids this winter will look back (whilst cold and hungry) on a freezing cold December night and think how well we do pomp and ceremony and how everything went like clockwork wonder how much it cost the taxpayer in these austere times
    Just a thought

    Conflating the cost of today with the existing fuel costs crisis seems somewhat disingenuous

    Everyone to there own, when I got up this morning I was not aware the proceedings had started, I made a brew for me and our lass and watch with pride the ceremony of delivering our queen to her final resting place.
    No slapping ourselves on the chest our whipping bodies to show how much we loved her no mass weeping, the armed forces and the powers that be did it with dignity and we loved every minute.

    You nailed it with your first words Dave. Each to their own.

    Likewise. Each to their own and all that, I just don't care one way or another about her passing or today's proceedings.
