Queen Elizabeth’s personal touches to her funeral service



Queen Elizabeth’s personal touches to her funeral service included flowers, jewels and corgis

Amongst all the pomp and ceremony of Her Majesty’s funeral service, were a number of Queen Elizabeth’s personal touches.

Firstly, there were the Queen’s two adorable corgis, awaiting the procession of her coffin to St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Muick and Sandy were escorted by two pages in red tailcoats.

It has previously been confirmed that Andrew and Sarah will take on the two royal pets. Her Majesty owned more than 30 corgis during her lifetime.

Crown Jewels

Sentimental jewellery was also on full display during the service.

Catherine, the new Princess of Wales was wearing the exquisite four-row Japanese pearl choker necklace with a curved diamond clasp.

This was commissioned by the Queen, using cultured pearls gifted by the Japanese government.

It had previously been loaned to Diana, who was the former Princess of Wales.

Catherine also wore a pair of diamond and pearl earrings which she had been given by the Queen.

Megan, the Duchess of Sussex chose to wear a pair of pearl stud earrings. These were given to Meghan by the Queen for her marriage to Prince Harry.


Music was also a big part of Elizabeth the second’s life and that was reflected in the Westminster Abbey service.

The funeral closed with the sound of bagpipes, played by the Queen’s personal piper.

The Piper to the Sovereign would play each morning for 15 minutes beneath her window, wherever she was resident. This happened over the course of her entire 70 years on the throne.

Meanwhile, ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’ was one of the hymns sung by the 2,000 mourners at the funeral. This was reportedly one of the Queen’s personal favourites.

Finally, at the request of the new King, the wreath laying on top of Her Majesty’s coffin was made up of flowers and foliage from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove House.

New York Stock Exchange in free fall



Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

FBI Director discusses classified documents as U.S. lawmakers demand answers



Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
