So, I finally figured it out about QE.

The Queen died at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland. They draped her coffin in the Scottish Flag, put her in a hearse, and drove her to Edinburgh, where she was stashed in a cathedral for the night. While there, the family came for a ceremony. They did that famous walk behind the hearse (that would have killed me), up some named street, and then she was carried into the cathedral. Thereafter, they had something called "vigil of princes," or something. This meant that her children all stood around the coffin with their eyes lowered, for twenty minutes (that would have finished me off.)

Her daughter Anne became the first female Royal to stand the vigil, wearing her uniform. She's 72! And genuinely grieving. Andrew was there, but he is disgraced, and they wouldn't let him wear his uniform. On the walk behind the hearse, someone in the crowd heckled him, and that man was arrested.

They're going to fly her to London next (maybe she's already back) and after ten days of mourning, on Monday the 19th, they'll have her funeral. I guess this is the event that Joe and Jill are going to attend.
T**** has that golf course in Scotland, but it won't do him any good. If he's going to crash, it'll have to be in London. I guess he could pretend to fly to Scotland.

Some things I noticed were that it took 8 soldiers to carry the coffin, and that they didn't wear headgear; they placed a crown on one end of the coffin which I found ghoulish. The Scottish people lined the roads all along the route, and in parts they clapped.

I hadn't realized that Charles is now King over Canada and Australia. I don't like that very much, but it's not my business. I've been waiting to see if the Orange Turd makes a move to crash, because I'd like to see him detained in London.

1. I suspect...

That the orange turd can't leave the country right now. Serious flight risk.

2. A good number of people in Scotland could care less about the royals

same in NI.

Orkney (the native families) would be dancing in the street. Except for the number of English and European tourists and incommers.

Not sure about Shetland.

The concept of entitled Royalty is rapidly dying. And none to soon.

3. Good summation,

Iím caring for my neighbors dog while sheís away and she turned the TV to BBC. Every time I go there something campy is happening (putting the crown on top of the head of the coffin!). I noticed they have special rubber soles for that funky walk. The ďgoodĒ children get to dress up. The bad kid does not. I like this Scotland part. Seeing the King and Camilla on thrones before Parliament is so off putting.

There is no way dump would be allowed to do that I canít believe anybody really thinks that itís going to happen lol.

Canada and Australia have been part of the commonwealth for as long as I can remember. Any countries can join or leave it if they want to, they also donít have to recognize the monarchy as head of state. Canada has a different relationship than many other countries and has been a monarchy for years apparently. Here are links. I know as a Canadian dual citizen I am considered to be a subject of the queen or king. I am not sure of all the specifics of it, but here are some links. Some countries have left and then rejoined the commonwealth such a South Africa after apartheid was abolished.

6. This is a royal funeral in the UK

And I am sure that no one not invited and also who prolly does not have appropriate security clearances will be allowed to attend the funeral.

8. Funny how they present them as such wholesome folks

Google the princess Royal and Laurence (her second husband). That affair was one hell of a scandal. The thing about these fairy tales is that they always leave out the real stories. Ask Kingieís first wife. Wait she died in a crash.
