The Queen herself planned her funeral well in advance. It was she who wanted a ceremony in Westminster Abbey and came up with the idea for the lights in the hearse so that her people could say goodbye to her at night, to name just a few details. Elizabeth II wanted her funeral ceremonies to be broadcast so that anyone wishing to bid farewell to the century monarch could do so.
But some moments of the funeral will probably never be seen again, reports the British news portal "Mirror". There should be a royal ban, which should mainly relate to very emotional moments of the royal family. There were a few situations in which King Charles III, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, in particular, were shown to be very upset and fighting back tears. But in addition to a state funeral, it was also the farewell of a family from their head. The agreement with the television stations is said to have existed for some time, so it was clear: Yes, they can broadcast. But no, in hindsight, some scenes will never be released again.
The official mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II ended last Tuesday. Now it's time for the royals to finally say goodbye and to organize themselves in the new royal hierarchies. Prince William, the new Prince of Wales, and his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales, paid their first visit to Wales with their new titles. The 40-year-old is said to have even started learning Welsh.
