Though the royal funeral was broadly as many would expect, there was one notable event which is not being talked about.
An unidentified woman chose the very moment when people were mourning to raise awareness for an important cause. The protestor ran topless onto the road outside St. George’s Chapel shouting “save the planet” after the minute long silence for Prince Philip.
She also tried to climb the statue of Queen Victoria which is placed outside of the chapel. Needless to say she was quickly removed from the premises by officers.
Several people showed up to observe from far, although COVID restrictions meant that only 30 people were allowed in the funeral.
Among those who attended were Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and prince Edward.
Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who is also Beatrice and Eugenie’s mother, was not in attendance and it is not yet clear why as she is thought to be on amicable terms with the Queen and still lives with her ex-husband at the Royal lodge castle.
The Queen’s 10 great-grandchildren including the heir to throne, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s son Prince George were also not in attendance.
Boris Johnson also did not attend to free up the guest list for other attendees it was reported.
