The Final Journey

I spent most of the day watching the television coverage of Prince Philip's funeral.

It is always interesting to see royal events. However, it was even more intriguing to see this one considering we're in the midst of a pandemic. 

The biggest takeaway I will have from watching today's event is the image of the Queen as she sat alone - on a pew - wearing a facemask during the service.

It will become one of those images that history will remember. It's more than a reigning monarch at the funeral of her husband. It's a widow grieving, alone, during our troubled times.
