For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I feel so bad for Queen Elizabeth. To be married to someone for 70 plus years, her heart must be broken.

And she cannot even mourn in private.

Rest In Peace, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg
 
99 3/4 s years is one heck of a run.   The House of Glücksburg (changed to Mountbatten after WWII) is proud of you

There are some absolutely beautiful photos of a very young  Queen Elizabeth with her husband when they were courting, and then through the years. Here.

So, Meghan and What's-His-Name will return to the UK?  Might be awkward.

Agree.  And methinks as sad as Harry may be over his grandfather's passing, there's a part of me that also thinks he's rather relieved he doesn't have to face him.

He had a very long life and married a beautiful queen. A lovely couple indeed.  Prayers for the entire family and England; truly a very sad day.

...hmmm.... sadly, I don't think Harry will make it and he won't come without Markle.

It is wonderful that Prince Philip got to celebrate another Easter with his family.   Too bad he didn't get to see his grandson and great-grandson on that day as well and didn't get to see them before he passed.

I hope Harry is proud of himself; maybe he'll do some self-reflecting!

Thank you for posting the photographs. I really like looking at them when they were young and their children were small.

The Queen announced 8 days of mourning

The Queen to enter eight-day mourning period following death of Prince Philip as funeral is arranged


Quote

T
he Queen will now enter an eight-day period of mourning following the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip.

Buckingham Palace today confirmed the Duke of Edinburgh passed away this morning at Windsor Castle, aged 99.

In the next month, the royal family will enter a period of mourning while a ceremonial funeral is arranged and a burial.

In a break with tradition, there is not due to be a lying in state for the Duke of Edinburgh.

During a royal lying in state, the coffin is draped in a royal flag, usually a personal standard, and rests on a catafalque – a decorated platform, covered in purple cloth, flanked by military guard around the clock.

For all who were curious about Megan and Harry

Prince Harry prepares to fly back to Britain following Philip's death - but will Meghan come too? Duke of Sussex faces having to quarantine for five days after arriving from US



Quote

Prince Harry’s return to the UK for his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral will be a pivotal moment for a divided Royal Family still nursing deep wounds over his and Meghan’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

Harry will be attending the event at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, most likely next week, and although there has been no word on whether heavily-pregnant Meghan would join him, it is believed unlikely in the circumstances.

Harry is likely to make the journey to London by private jet from his home near Los Angeles and it is understood he may be permitted to use a diplomatic exemption to waive the normal Covid quarantine rules applying to flights from the USA.

There has not yet been an official statement from the couple on Philip's death. 

It has been reported that Harry was already largely self-isolating at the £11m mansion near Santa Barbara from when his grandfather entered hospital.
