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.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion



TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
