I have just completed watching on ITV1 the funeral of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. The commentators and other contributors were professional and very down to earth. The Queen sat alone with her head bowed during the service, but I felt all the UK seemed to be thinking of her and wishing her the best, including myself. The poem at the end of the programme on ITV was powerful and reflective. Covid 19 and its implications, in my view, are here for a long time yet, but if there is anything I’ve learnt today it’s about reaching out to others, doing the right thing, and being tolerant of the other person. Finally see a clip re. the Duke of Edinburgh funeral. Many thanks to you all for reading my blog.
