Archbishop of Canterbury lamented that, like the millions this year, the Royals couldn’t “say goodbye the way they wanted or planned.”

Most Pastor Justin Welby, Who will deliver Blessings at the funeral of Prince Edinburgh, Members of the Royal Family said they were sadly united with the British who lost their loved ones during the pandemic.

He praised the household for sticking to Covid-19’s social restrictions, saying that this meant “representing all funerals” last year. This is characterized by the “burden” of not being able to give off ideally to relatives.

“My first thought when I heard the news was for my family,” he said.

“This is like all other funerals and unlike all other funerals. It’s like all other funerals because the family is a family. But this loss in the glare of goodness. And because you have to endure sorrow, it’s clear. Many people around the world see them.

“The Royal Family has just behaved brilliantly and just followed the rules, which means that last year, 6-8 million people in this country alone experienced what they experienced. In fact, they can’t. Say goodbye the way you wanted or planned and it’s an extra burden

“But as people around the world are looking at them tomorrow, I think they can sympathize with this and feel that there is a funeral here that represents all the funerals in a great way.”

The archbishop praised the Queen for her calm and Stoicism in the face of the struggle.

“I will never forget to admire His Majesty’s behavior. Knowing her a little is one of the greatest privileges of this role.

“She sits alone and masks. Complaining about it never crosses her mind. She reflects her normal dignity and calmness.

“People will look at her and make all sorts of decisions about what she thinks. We can’t do that at any funeral. You never know what people think. Hmm.

“We know that this is the Queen who has served us extraordinarily for nearly 70 years, her power in her words, and say goodbye to the man who has been staying all the time. It means that it is. “

Looking back on the Duke’s life, the Archbishop said he was constantly struck by his uncontrollable energy.

“We all know someone who somehow brings a little hump to the room when they enter the room,” he said.

“In my experience, Duke was one of those people. He couldn’t be completely bored.”
