and his three siblings stood vigil around the flag-draped coffin of Queen Elizabeth II for 15 minutes on Friday evening in London.  A baby’s cry was the only sound.

the tide of emotion that has engulfed us and the sheer number of people who have gone out of their way to express their own love, admiration and respect (for) our dear mama.”
