    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I've always found it rather odd how some people prefer to focus on his attendance at a pre-war funeral when he was 16 rather than his years fighting fascism in WWII. It's as if they would rather think he was actually a secret Nazi for some reason.

    The guest list. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56765468 All children and grandchildren in attendance but no great grandkids. Beatrice and Eugenie's spouses also attend even though the former's husband has been in the family less than a year and probably barely knew Philip. Peter Philips and Lord Snowdon going alone after their marriage break ups, no place for Fergie not surprisingly. The three Germans confirmed but a no show for Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Pushy. Countess Mountbatten goes but not her husband, as do the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent without their wives. Princess Alexandra also present despite rumours of ill health but not Lady Pamela Hicks.

    Looks like three German relatives have made the cut. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9471993/Prince-Philips-close-family-Germany-isolating-Ascot-funeral.html Presumably this means some of the older or more distant names suggested (Princess Alexandra, Lady Pamela Hicks) might not be coming?

    Perhaps they mean the current Earl's wife? Haven't Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Kent been in poor health?

    Do we expect any of these to attend? 30 is pretty small for the Royal Family. Not sure if there will be enough room for the Kents, Beatrice and Eugenie's husbands might stay at home too. Obviously not looking likely for Fergie either.

    I think there will be few if any children there. Presumably on Philip's side King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie will attend? Perhaps Lady Pamela Hicks as well?

    In his defence he offended everyone without fear or favour.

    I don't he think he was quite as sharp in his last couple of years of F1, which is why I was surprised he lasted so long afterwards. His best years I think were with James Hunt.

    They took away exclusive rights to produce the Christmas message from the BBC after the Diana "Panorama" interview as punishment.

    I'm pretty sure the Forth/London Bridge codenames would have been changed ages ago.

    Same here. I assumed he would go on more or less forever.

    Surely they could have thought of a better excuse for the coup? I hope for her sake she doesn't have any overdue library books either. https://theguardian.com/world/2021/feb/03/myanmar-coup-aung-san-suu-kyi-workers-hospitals-civil-disobedience-aung-san-suu-kyi

    Do we go back to saying Burma as well?

    Tony Blair

    I was about to say the same thing, especially as he's still relatively young and away from the pressures of office for over a decade.

    Of all people I thought he/his family would be careful enough to avoid it. Perhaps the Barbados trip wasn't such a good idea after all.
