    That's the clip (the protection officer in Scotland, meeting the tourists with Her Maj) that at least 4 people sent me after the Queen died. You think my friends know me or what? 😁

    Ooh, I got a photo to load!!!

    Freaking Meghan - as the tweet posting this said, she's breathtaking and you're not even seeing her face!

    Yeah, agree Charlene didn't look good. (the dress/coat was awful but I mean her face - but also my god Albert looked SO OLD, I didn't believe it was him!) I haven't watched all the funeral yet - was out at dentist yesterday, recorded bbc and nbc, only got up to the entrances to the Abbey on BBC (they started coverage almost 3 hrs before the funeral so there was a lot to watch!) I have a busy week so I'll watch in bits and pieces, probably. It's not like a sporting event where the ending is supposed to be a surprise.....

    I know - I sort of want to see if I can find it in Country Life (I don't think the new story has any interior shots - wonder if any older copies do?) online. Royalty aside, I ADORE waterfront houses, mills are special, and this looks like an amazing conversion. Some people have a LOT of opinions about adults who are married/together but maintain separate residences or rooms or whatever. To me, meh. Where you sleep or live doesn't tell me if you have a good or bad relationship (and honestly, NO ONE knows what goes on in a relationship except the people IN IT, appearances can be deceiving). They have a lot of houses, they travel a lot, they were old(er) divorcees when they married - and she was a scandal - good for her for keeping something for herself, and good for him for recognizing it's not a referendum about the state of their relationship.

    I also loved the story (I think it was in Omid Scobie's book) that it was Fergie who pulled Meghan aside before her intro to the Queen to make sure someone had taught her how to curtsy and when.....

    The curtsy thing is ridiculous. But yes, Kate is lower in rank and originally would have had to curtsy to Bea & Eug but the Queen changed it, I think, but perhaps it was only when she was with William - on her own she'd still be lower? I've read I don't know how many stories about that and I'm still not sure what the original protocol was vs current protocol, and then whether there's an issue of "protocol" but everyone just does something else....

    I watched the procession of the coffin (I keep wanting to say casket so I need to look up the specific differences...) from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall this morning. I love the intricate staging and logistics - how one officer collects the bearskin hats of the pallbearers so they don't get in the way as they move the coffin, just silly little details that the military has mastered like no one else. Seeing which family members were there. Contrasting Anne's sensible shoes (she was walking, good for her! First princess ever, loving it!!!) and then the stilettos of Kate & Meghan & Sophie (Camilla also has more sensible low-heeled shoes on - I would definitely be THAT royal 😉 ) The camera was focussed on Charles & Camilla as they walked away after the ceremony, but you could see curtseys in the background - I do believe that "upstart American" Meghan had a deeper & more graceful curtsey than the POW 😉

    I think Jean Smart was one of my top picks - she is stunning!!! Connie Britton is so pretty (and an amazing actress!) but I didn't like her dress, though everyone else seems to.....

I didn't watch but am catching up on fashion this morning. A lot I like! Bowen Yang's jacket - yum!

    My best friend is bummed at the timing. She lives in Scotland (Aberdeen, just sold house and moved to near Glasgow) but she's in England this weekend/part of the week helping watch her nephews - she's missing the Scotland and England opportunities to pay her respects in person, which she wanted to do for history. (she's American)

    11 yeah, don't doubt it, so what? Kate too.... [if I could live to 96 AND look as good as Elizabeth did, way until the end - her skin was perfection! - I'd probably smoke too!] 7 ugh, nope, don't believe it 9 if this is Andrew, that I would believe. That's why I think Charles will always support him, hating it as he does (and/or Andrew is WELL taken care of in Queen's will and Charles just has to ignore him) 7 (7 again? Fakey Fakey Fakey, you suck) EVERYONE in media had their "when the queen dies" items ready. Given that family, esp Harry & Meghan - you know they've talked about it. Most people talk about what happens when family dies, and when your family is rich and/or famous? Those discussions have import and consequence - so she's probably been talking about it and a podcast wouldn't be too much more effort.

    Damn my photo issue continues - that link doesn't look like it's working. Well, it's the 3rd photo in Lainey's post https://www.laineygossip.com/gabrielle-union-dwyane-wade-brought-magnetic-contagious-confident-energy-world-premiere-the-inspection-tiff/71650

    Gabrielle Union

    Hmm, don't remember the drama before they married - funny to read 15 yr old posts now! Anyway, Union had a movie premier at TIFF last night and Wade was with her and DAMN are they hot. So hot. I don't think my husband and I look at each other this way often, but I think I need to change that 😉 https://photos.laineygossip.com/articles/dwyane-gabrielle-09sept22-0003.jpg

    Today, I learned that King Charles III's favorite dog breed is a Jack Russell terrier and I couldn't be more surprised. I'd think that breed would just dig up his lovely gardens.....I also learned that the Queen had a cocker spaniel at her death. I knew about the 2 dogs Andrew gave her after Philip died, but she had another 2, and one was a cocker. Interesting. She really did love the animals more than her children....
