    I was touched to see the Imperial State Crown openly displayed on top and I guess there were enough guards surrounding Her and I suspect plenty of uniformed and plain clothed police on patrol to prevent any scumbag opportunitist tea leaf.

    Hope these scum are paying for all the pomp around this with their own billions and nothing is left to the tax payer.

    No need to crucify me. I'm anti monarchy and have always been.

    I bet they wish they were paying for it and selling the TV rights to make a lot of money from an old ladies death. Unfortunately the state has taken the opportunity to cash in away from them instead using as some global soft power tool.
