‘Felt cheated!’ Eamonn Holmes fumes at ‘beautiful’ moment ruined at Queen funeral

200

Eamonn Holmes reflected on a moment of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral which left him feeling “cheated” as he talked about the initially “beautiful” part of the service on Tuesday’s GB News.

“Oh yes, absolutely,” Nicholas replied. He went on to detail why he still wore a black tie.

“I’ve still got the black tie on,” he pointed out as Eamonn clarified: “But you don’t have to anymore.”

“I don’t have to, but I just feel I don’t want to let it go just yet,” he explained.

‘This is a public punishment’: Royal fans fume as Prince Harry placed in second row

Royal fans were left furious as Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were sat in the second row for the Queen’s State Funeral.

Those watching the funeral were infuriated with many claiming it was a “public punishment” for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leaving the Royal Family as senior members.

“I’d begun to think I may not live long enough to see King Charles III.”

Recalling the royal milestones he had witnessed, he repeated: “So for me, this is a period I just don’t want to quite let go of.”

“Yes, fair enough, fair enough,” Eamonn responded. “Talking about letting it go, was it just me?

“There was that beautiful moment in St George’s Chapel, when the coffin was descending into the ground and everybody was watching like, ‘Gosh, what happens next?’

“And it goes down, down, down and then we cut to the piper, and when we come back to the chapel, the coffin was gone. I felt a bit cheated by that.”

“Well, here’s the thing,” Nicholas responded. “At the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, I think the instruction must have gone out that we saw the coffin, then there was pictures – awful pictures we all remember of Her Majesty The Queen on her own with a mask and nobody with her, that was so, so heartbreaking, wasn’t it?

“When we next saw the chapel, the coffin had gone. And I thought, ‘What? What happened to that? Where did it go?’

“This time we got not long – they didn’t linger on it very long, but just enough to see it descend.

“But why would they not have continued with that?” Eamonn pressed.

“Whatever happens, a hole in the ground and then it’s covered up, or whatever.

“Is that considered bad taste? Is that considered a lack of privacy for a very public person?”

“I guess it’s a bit of that,” Nicholas assumed, recalling again the filming of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

“You remember again, going back to Prince Philip’s funeral, that although we saw pictures of The Queen, there was no dwelling on her.

“And I think people, quite rightly at a funeral, particularly of a Queen, particularly somebody who’s been on the throne for so long who was mourning and seeing her husband taken away for the last time, you know… proper behaviour. That’s fine, isn’t it?”

Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel airs weekdays from 6am on GB News
