Queen Elizabeth II – She would have been PROUD!

Yesterday, I couldn’t sleep. I woke up at 2:30 AM CT. Annoyed, I turned on the TV.

I GOT SO LUCKY!

My annoyance was short lived. Suddenly, I was watching the BBC Channel, so many amazing back stories about the Queen and her generosity. Heart warming to hear them all.

I was able to see the Bagpipers. They were INCREDIBLE! If I had not been up, I would have missed them.

The funeral had so many amazing moments. We have not seen something so regal like this in years.

The weather was beautiful too. I found this picture of The Queen in yellow. How perfect since the sun came out for her yesterday. Someone interviewed said there was a rainbow the day before.

I LOVED how she had her signature style. ALWAYS the same hat / dress / coat, but in a variety of vibrant colors. Just wonderful! We always knew it was her!

She had two funerals yesterday. They were absolutely beautiful. This gave us time to be at peace.

One young man who was in the procession said he met King Charles. The interviewer asked, “What did he say?”

The young man, not used to being on camera, was nervous, but finally shared, “The King said his mother liked drills and precision, so to be precise.”

AND BY GOSH – THEY WERE ALL PRECISE!!

The young men who carried the coffin were incredible. I’ve moved furniture with another person, it’s hard going up stairs with a heavy load. They did it perfectly!

I wish she could have seen it!

The Queen would have have given her beautiful smile, waived and been PROUD!

A job well done!

We will miss you!

  1. I wish I had gotten up at 5am, but I didn’t tune in until 7 so missed the first part of the funeral. I saw the procession through the streets but missed the Windsor Castle part.I was hoping they would replay it in the evening, but all I saw while channel surfing was bits and pieces. I’ll have to see if I can find it online later.

  2. At one point in the service there was a solitary bagpiper, who started playing and then marched slowly away until you could no longer see or hear him. I thought that was a nice touch.

      1. Didn’t know that! If you knew about the bagpiper off the top of your head, you’re way more versed in all things “Queen” than I am. I have to rely pretty much on whatever I remember from “The Crown” 🙂

      2. LOL – I was up at 4:30 AM day of funeral, the Bagpipers were lining up, they interviewed the bagpiper to the Queen that’s how I learned about it. He said it was an honor playing for her.
