Just chatting to Mrs AFC.

We do not watch live TV but she has just read that Prince Phillip will not get a state funeral.

Though neither of us are supporters of the Royal Family, she thinks that is an abomination and she is right.

He has served this country for almost 80 years, the idea that we can not say goodbye and thank him for everything that he has done is just plain wrong.

Apparently on his death bed he asked NOT to have a State funeral. And he asked not to have his body lie in state.

I'm aware of that FG, Just one more thing that he needs to do in the service of his adopted country.

It is not for him, it is for us.

And Soho.

We should ignore his death bed wishes because it's what others want?
No. His was a life dedicated to the service of the people of this country. I believe that there are many, many, people who want to offer their thanks and show their resect. I think he would understand that.

Quite clearly he didn't understand that or didn't care, he asked for no state funeral. Perhaps those people should show their respect by granting him his death bed requests.

Well if he was alive he’d think you were a right twat for that AFC.

RIP. One of the good ones.
I think that he might well call me names for suggesting that, but would understand the necessity.
Do you understand the concept of service?

Genuinely difficult one hackney, I totally understand his wishes and (I think) understand them.

But he would also understand his one remaining act of service for the people of this country.

Why should he do one more act of service? Give the lad a break, he didn’t retire until he was 97 ffs

Of course , which is why given the man he was , quietly serving his country without expecting huge recognition , his wishes for a private funeral should be respected

First actual good point made.

Still think he would understand the necessity though.

I imagine Phil watched Diana’s funeral and thought ‘not in a million years do I want that’.

He might simply have been well aware that queues and crowds aren't a great idea at the present time, and decided to put himself second – again.
Still, it's nice to know that people on here can still get into an argument about anything and everything...

l have strong views on the royals, and its a 180 degree turn of what l thought a few years ago. Others have the view l had back then, so its like religion , you don't have to agree with other peoples, but you should respect them !

I'm prone to make light of everything, well take the piss really. Some stuff as made me piss though and l haven't shared it on here or facebook. Yet! sorry, l was joking.

Shock horror . Bnet “ knows” funny stuff . I’m sure he’ll provide convincing well sourced evidence one day soon . 😂
Like proper evidence too , not a youtube video spoken over by a deranged unidentifiable American .
