1. I've set my alarm...

To make sure I see it all. I've always been a fan of him and QEII.

16. An amazing couple who let an amazing life.

His younger years were so tragic and difficult. I’ll always admire him for being the Queen’s support behind the scenes. A true self confident man, not threatened by a powerful woman. HE set a wonderful example in that regard. Many here apparently do not share appreciation for that example.

Very un-American, in my opinion.

These are not people to admire. They are the people our ancestors fought to be rid of.

with Disney buying some of it, and Comcast (owners of NBC) the British Sky operation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_News#Acquisition_by_Comcast

10. Doesn't matter how one feels about Royalty or even Philip himself. I've been captivated by the long

history and arc of his 99 years of life and the specials showing all that occurred DURING that life. He lived through 13 US Presidents and all the incredible inventions and scientific advances during those near hundred years. While anyone who lived that long could have a phenomenal story that could be told, someone in the unique role held by Prince Philip had exposure to so much more.

History is my thing and I have found the documentary coverage of his long life to be fascinating. Not because of celebrity adoration or any love for ROYALTY of any kind, but the global events that his life reflected. I'd not even think of turning away.

11. Same here.

Not to mention an example (maybe the first) of a strong, confident man giving up his career for a strong, confident woman, one who became the longest reigning monarch in history.

14. Well, that's fine, and I would never tell you, or anyone else, not to watch, but...

for myself, I'd rather watch a decent documentary, or read a book.

6. Anti-"royalist" here, *WILL* watch it, same as to keep up with stuff - like watching Awards shows

when never having seen any of the nominees, how I sampled a couple of seasons of the KARDASHes *and* Celebrity Apprentice -- all such to know, for myself, some of what is in the general soup out there. If people are interested in reconstructions like "The Crown" or whatever, why not watch a real time thing.

15. He picked the music (& all). DU artists should be commissioned on the theme,

"Phillip Pondering His Funerary Music." -- appropriately lugubrious. Perhaps with Anne in the hat and long coat in the backround - *very* spook-ay!

17. Aren't funerals by their very nature 'lugubrious'?

Anne was his daughter. Sad you find this so amusing. Not that a single person in that funeral party knows who you are, nor would they care what you think even if they did know.

7. Have someone stationed at the graveside to say

“Bugger off, you bloody old sodding fart!”

Phillip would have wanted it that way. Judging by how he talked to everyone else...

He seemed very much a family man.

26. Prince Philip's coffin draped in Royal Standard









Standard

Prince Philip is consort to Queen Elizabeth. His standard is quartered Denmark, Greece, Mountbatten, and Edinburgh: the two royal families the prince descends from, his surname, and his title. Denmark: three blue lions passant on a yellow field strewn with nine sea-leaves, depicted as red hearts. Greece: a white centered cross on a blue field. Mountbatten: 5 vertical stripes of white and black. Edinburgh: on a white field, a black three-towered castle, with white details except for red roof, banners, and gate, on a rocky grey base with a stairway leading up to the gate (usually 1:2, rarely 2:3).



Duke's flag, before Elizabeth's ascension



Flag of the Duke of Edinburgh (1951-1952)
According to Carr (1953) the design of the Duke’s standard, approved by His late Majesty King George VI in November 1951, consisted of the arms of the Duke impaled with those borne by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, when she was the Heiress Presumptive. However since Queen Elizabeth came to the Throne the Duke has used the standard consisting of his arms only.
