    EFL matches to be moved to avoid clashing with the funeral. Times to be announced once the full details of the funeral are released, but sounds like they may hold them earlier or later on Saturday. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12271909/efls-3pm-kick-offs-on-april-17-to-be-moved-for-prince-philips-funeral

    I think this game is going to outlast some of its competitors...

    Nick Witchell just said Harry will come back for the funeral. I suspect Meghan may cite pregnancy issues with flying and also looking after Archie. Still, they knew this was coming when they did the interview, had to be prepared for an awkward return in the near future. I didn't count Peter's wife as they're separated like you said, I did include Fergie since she's still essentially Andrew's other half and he needs all the friends he can get at the minute. But the son of the heir to the throne will definitely be expected to be there, and it would say more about the relations if Harry doesn't come back than if he does.

    OK, so, from Monday the restrictions lift to 30 for funerals... There is just enough room for the immediate family (including the Sussexes): rough count, Queen + kids and consorts + grandkids and consorts + great grandkids = 32 in total, but given Eugenie has a baby and Zara has a baby, and most of the great grandkids are under 8, let alone 10, I'd imagine a number of them wouldn't attend anyway. So there's space for a few more. Margaret's kids and grandkids maybe? I'm not sure Philip's got any living family he's close to on the Battenberg side. I don't think there'd be a massive need for them to break the rules, nor would it be a good look at an already tricky time PR-wise for the family to have more than the allowed number of mourners.

    BBC website's live text on the cricket ended 2 minutes after the announcement of his death.

    Actually think lockdown has probably been quite nice for them: a chance to spend his final year together in a way that hasn't probably been possible for decades. There'll be some closure in that.

    I'm presuming there's been discussion in the past year, and particularly early this year since he went into hospital, about what the procedures will be if he dies during lockdown restrictions. I'm assuming there's a plan in place about crowds, lying in state plans, state funerals, who'll be at the funeral, how they'll get there, and so on. It'll all come out in due course.

    I said this when he appeared. Suddenly showing his age. Found it amusing he was contacted "down the line" in the minutes after the death while he quite obviously going to be putting on his black tie and suit to come into the office - he was on screen about 15 minutes later!

    Think Martine's stunned she's the one who ended up on duty when it was announced. She must have a million things being yelled in her ear and it's all quite stunted. Was probably always going to be the case, though. I've no idea what impact it will have on the Queen. It will, of course, be devastating to her, but it is not wholly unexpected, and I suspect it's been a managed decline over the fortnight or so he's been home from hospital, so she'll have been preparing for it. I wouldn't put any money on her going this year, fully expect another Christmas message from HM. Oh, and of course Rest in Peace, Your Royal Highness. A life of service with an appropriately low-key end.

    Fair point. Having just had a look, you've got a 70s Scottish goalkeeper, and given the way they're diminishing, that's not a bad shout. And you could sneak up on the inside with the unpredictable Nobel Prize Winners group, where you have 4 uniques - youngest is 81, oldest is 89, so who knows?! It was enough for Rotten Ali in Game 1...

    Well you keep going Champ, they won't be laughing in the end will they? Trying to predict the Scavenger Hunt, though...it's a mug's game.

    Buffalo Phil was the only one who had Alex Neil, nobody had Ian Holloway. I'll do an update in a couple of weeks.

    I'm blaming you for reminding CdG to start another thread. Seems he'd missed the news on Wednesday.
