Especially when, I believe this was the UK's most expensive funeral of a select group of people who suffer no discomfort from cradle to grave.
    President Trump's state visit a few years ago cost £3.5 million. Makes the funeral with many many countries represented and suggestions of ~4 billion catching some aspect of the somber pomp on the day look not so expensive. I read that London festive season Hotel bookings are up significantly which should more than cover the costs of the event.
