Queen Elizabeth buried her husband, Prince Philip. The great thing about the U.K. is that when things are at their worst, they are always at their best. 

Queen Elizabeth buried her husband, Prince Philip. Watching the funeral ceremony from Washington DC filled me with high regard and great affection for Britain and the deep admiration I have for The Royal Family and all its traditions. 

Seeing the Queen, dressed in black, with a mask covering her face, sitting in the St George’s Chapel, isolated in the moment of grief with no one to hold her hand, brought into clear focus the cruelty of the covid pandemic. It is more than the virus. It is a humanity destroyer that separates us from our family and friends in both joy and sorrow. 

The Queen did not cry. With the cameras of the world placed on her, she managed to keep herself together while saying goodbye to the love of her life. Not in one moment did she make the funeral about herself in this most difficult moment of her life.

In this poignant moment of her nation’s life, Queen Elizabeth will forever be a source of inspiration and strength. “Grief is the price we pay for love,” The Queen said. The ray of light moved in. 

United in grief, brothers Harry and William stood in silence. 

The great thing about the U.K. is that when things are at their worst, they are always at their best. 

The farewell to Prince Phillip was simple and yet powerful.
