As for what will happen as a society, it'll be Poppy Day on steroids.
Yep, you thought we lost our heads in Diana week, you ain't see nothing yet.

On one side you'll have those demanding we wear sackcloth and ashes for the next six months, and that anyone not in full lamentation mode should be shot, and then deported.

On the other you'll get those whinging about Bargain Hunt being cancelled for coverage of possibly the biggest domestic story that the BBC et al have covered for 70 years.

Can't wait. :roll:

Please explain, I didn't see it.
Neither did I, but from what I see, the story is he looked quite distressed, but there's no mention about how Edward, Anne, William or any of the others looked, so who knows? I mean it's possible that the enormity of the prospect of his destiny drawing ever nearer suddenly overwhelmed him.

It might also be the case that he was thinking of his father not being around, who was of course, a veteran himself. As he turns 73 himself today, he might not have got the presents he wanted?

At the end of the day, we don't know. The only thing to do is wait and see.

I thought the same; okay I’m not an expert, but even given the solemnity of the occasion, he looked very human and close to really expressing his emotions

He looked like he was really struggling and for a moment his lip was quivered and the tears looked they were about to come. It was actually incredibly moving to see. This was before the two minutes silence. As they all trouped back in afterwards and the camera panned across the balcony of the Foreign Office, Camilla also looked distraught. Now obviously we're putting two and two together here, and I'm usually pretty immune to this royal watching stuff, but this morning felt different.
