Prince is Dead

Prince Philip, the irascible and tough-minded husband of Queen Elizabeth II who spent more than seven decades supporting his wife in a role that both defined and constricted his life, has died, Buckingham Palace said Friday. He was 99.

May he rest in peace.

Forth Bridge protocols invoked.

Seriously, that's the code phrase for HRH Prince Philip. London Bridge is for the Queen.

I'd seen a video about London Bridge protocol some time ago. I just watched the one on Forth Bridge on YouTube yesterday.

I imagine that the funeral and associated commemorative events will be limited by the pandemic.

Will the pandemic slow down a Royal Funeral? I am not sure that will do it. Those Brits do love their Dress Up Parades.
We will see.
