Since many of you seem to be fans of the Royals I would expect to read that at least a couple of you would make the effort to have a viewing of the coffin, unless you're just forum keyboard fans.

Therefore, I have posted this as a pre-warning for those who do decided to make the effort to show their respect, as opposed to just talking about it.

Anyway, it should provide some amusing news footage if the queue is shown.  :clap:

What makes anyone assume that her body is still in that coffin?

PureCremations already done the deed, or she's already interred in her final place, but the show must go on.

Well, we were all most likely waiting for the announcement of her passing for hours before it came through.  I suspect that she'd already died before they even issued the statement around midday that she was unwell to the media.

Whether the family actually know the full facts or not isn't really relevant.

I'm just throwing out a not entirely unreasonable hypothesis.

Heh heh...all those crowds of Folk in London waiting for hours to show Their respect as the coffin passes will not be pleased to know that....I'm not as cynical as You. :rolleyes:

Yes,We knew She had died hours before it was announced.

We don't live in the middle ages. I can't see any advantage to anybody in subterfuge about the time of death or any of the other speculations. 

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

Yes, it should be an open coffin so the few seconds gawp is worth the 5 mile trudge.

Problem is that someone will suggest it's a waxworks image.  :shocked:
