Being a tour guide is so difficult in 2/3degree weather! ❄️ you can’t feel your face, can hardly hear and can barely move your finger tips ⛄️ Family time is always a good time though! Happy Holidays everybody🎄

** England’s first Crowned Queen Regnant is buried ** • • “She was a King’s daughter, she was a King’s sister, She was a King’s wife, she was a Queen, and by that same title a King also” Bishop John White of Winchester in his sermon to Queen Mary I at her funeral. • • 460 years ago #onthisday - 14th December - in 1558, England’s first Crowned Queen Regnant Queen Mary I, daughter of King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon was buried at Westminster Abbey. • • Mary had died on November 17 the previous month at St James’s Palace aged 42. Within hours of her death, her body was embalmed, then it was moved to the Privy Chamber, where mourners paid homage to the body in the same place where Mary had received privileged guests. Until she was buried, her household would continue as before, with with food placed on the royal table, gentlemen ushers officiating with their white wands and guards standing at the doors. On December 10, a solemn procession of heralds, lords, ladies and officers of the household all in black entered the Privy Chamber at St James’s Palace, took up Mary’s coffin and carries it to the Chapel Royal of the Palace. On the 13th December, the coffin carrying the body of Queen Mary was draped in cloth of gold and removed from St James’s Palace and was taken to Westminster Abbey. On top of the coffin was a life-sized effigy of the Queen Crowned and carrying the sceptre and orb. • • Following behind came a grand procession accompanying the Queen on her last journey through her capital city of London. The procession included, her household servants and gentlemen mourners, King Philip’s servants, the Marquess of Winchester with the banner of the English royal arms, and the heralds carrying the paraphernalia of Monarchy - the sword, the helmet and the coat of armour - male symbols which would now pass from England’s first female ruler to its second. Mary’s ladies, ‘riding all in black trailed to the ground’, and her chief mourner, Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox (daughter of Margaret Tudor, therefore Mary’s first cousin) immediately followed the coffin. Behind them came the clergy. • • Continued in the comments >>>
