1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I’m sorry to hear this- was hoping he might make it to 100 and share the joke with his wife about the telegram. RIP

    Maybe (and I speak as a republican) today is not the day for slagging them off.

    RIP Phil the Greek, I don't consider the royals much but I don't think an RIP thread should be the time for criticism.

    I feel sorry for Elizabeth. What a shock at her age regardless of her standing. She will need her family now, maybe they’ll pull their fingers out and rally around her.

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    RIP, I happen to think he fulfilled the difficult role of Queen's Consort rather well. Given his background, the era he grew up in, his family and military history, it could have been difficult for him to be subservient to his wife but if it was, it never showed, and his occasional gaffes added a certain humanity to his persona.

    Pity he never lasted long enough to get his telegram from the Mrs. Although in the background for much of his life he certainly wasn’t short of a funny quip!

    I afford him and his family the same condolences I would to anyone. I agree that this is not the place to debate the concept of royalty.
