Not afraid to admit but have had a tear or two over this.

So much respect for a person who kept to her promise and gave her all by doing her best to look after us. An amazing monarch which the world will is never likely to experience again.

May she rest in peace and enjoy eternity with her soul mate, Philip.

I was doing okay until they got to the part where she was transferred to the hearse and drove off playing "God save the King (Queen?)" then I could feel a little bit of a tear coming on, however I loved seeing the little smile that Charles had around that time as I'm sure he felt that everyone had done her proud. The other time it felt it was when they were playing 'God save the King' at Windsor and he closed his eyes for a moment, the emotion on his face said it all.

We came across on 2nd and TBH when she died I did consider coming home.
But can pay our respects anywhere and have been able to watch some on TV. Especially today, sat on our pitch in Macon. In respect for a wonderful person. It was great to watch, something the British do best.

We were in Hyde Park with what seemed like at least a million others when HM was transferred to the hearse. Nearly everyone was on their feet singing the anthem and applauding respectfully at the end. Very moving.

Away in The Netherlands and Belgium but still watched the truly moving ceremonies. Listened to the Last Post being played last night with nothing but thoughts of her majesty. Tears a plenty today.

A fascinating moving days watch with incredible planning and performance of colourful complex pageantry and security. A suitable final send off for an incredible monarch and servant to us all .
There must be many very proud parents , friends and relatives of those taking part in such an historic event, the Pallbearers as a case in point, but many many more.

Away in France enjoying some fine late summer sunshine. The only way I could think of watching was to hot spot the phone to the tv, it worked!
Probably burnt through a bucket of data, but to watch the whole unique spectacle was definitely worth it.
Goodnight and RIP ma’am.

We witnessed the Last Post ceremony at Ypres 2 weeks ago, it was very moving them, I can only image what it must be like since the passing of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

My wife like so many others was so cut up over her passing that we decided to cut short our holiday and return home last week.

We are in Honolulu and stayed up until 3.00am to watch the funeral via BBC World.
Just before going to bed I took a quick look from the balcony of our 27 storey apartment and there were lights on in about 4 apartments, so that, I think, gives you an indication of the late Queen’s popularity here. These are locally owned apartments, not holiday lets, so occupied by average Americans.
I will be interested to hear what they think about Joe Biden being seated at the end of Row 14.

The funeral was very moving and wonderfully choreographed. I thought 'Thank God we can still do something well in this country'. I was particularly moved to see Emma her Fell pony at Windsor. I've had to give up riding in my 70s, but HM continued into her 90s. It was heartwarming to see the occasional clip of her out on her pony.

I totally agree Viennese. I watched the funeral on BBC World until 3.00am (I’m currently in Honolulu) but it wasn’t until I saw a roundup of the procession going to Windsor that I had to reach for my hankie at the sight of Emma.
BTW well done on keeping in the saddle so long.
