Chester Barnes - one for the oldies. Had his chop.
Bit slow Sb! He kicked it 10 days ago. Probably been Post Mortemed, funeraled and burnt / buried about week ago! ;)

Shame, played some great parts. Liked him in no offence.
Is it my imagination or do there seem to be an increasing number of people getting brain tumours?

I have to be honest his name meant nothing to me but when I saw him visually I knew who he was.

I don’t know why I haven’t watched Friday Night Dinner.

I've seen something that they're up by 40% since the early nineties ,a lot of that might be advancement in detection .

Paul Ritter! Shit on it :(
FND was one of my favourite comedies. It was the one show which everyone in our house loved. He showed his versatility when he appeared in Chernobyl.

RIP Paul.

He was brilliant in Friday Night Dinner, also in Chernobyl in something totally different. Sad to lose him so young.
Only started watching FND a couple of years ago after both Mum and daughter raved about it (Neither would be trusted for recommendation normally!) Very good show.
Way too young to go.
RIP.

Martin was my favourite in FND. Did a great job convincing everyone that Anatoly Dyatlov was a complete bastard.

Can’t imagine how the Queen is feeling. 75 years with someone then they’re gone. Sadly wouldn’t be surprised to see her go soon, my Nan deteriorated after my grandad died.
Happens a lot doesn't it? Must be tougher in such a bizarre situation like being the queen and you are isolated in many ways and it has been the 2 of you for so long.

Funeral on a weekday and a public holiday or a sneaky Saturday?

What are the odds on Meg accompanying Hazza for the funeral?
Without trying to be in any way facetious, what are they going to do about arrangements with these restrictions on funerals currently? Will they stop people lining the streets?

I used to work with the Duke's batman (ex RN). He travelled the world with him and certainly had some tales to tell and many he kept to himself.
One of his duties was keeper of the royal condoms!

That won't happen obviously. What are the current/reviewed arrangement concerning family numbers at funerals?

Possibly have a service at Windsor which they can easily restrict access to and if the public demand is there a memorial later when crowds won't be an issue.

My stepfather was cremated on Tuesday in Cornwall and could only have 16 at the service. We had to watch via video link. Not sure if those limits will change after Monday though...

Had to turn TV/radio off. Whilst I don't consider myself a Royalist/Monarchist, I'm not necessarily 'anti'. But the overwrought fawning from some exceeding posh voiced commentators has already reached fever pitch.

He wasn’t married to the Queen. That said I’m sure it’s not a state funeral is it?
