Justin Welby’s crush on Prince Philip’s funeral

The Archbishop of Canterbury praised the Queen for “doing the right thing” by sitting alone at Prince Philip’s funeral.

In what could be considered a critique of party portal – with two Downing Street gatherings were held the night before the funeral – Justin Welby said the Queen’s observance of Covid rules embodied her sense of ‘duty’.

The Archbishop, who officiated at the Duke of Edinburgh‘s funeral in April, said: “The clearest moment for me, the absolute pinnacle of [her commitment to duty]is that at the funeral of her husband of 70 years, she sat alone.

“It was leadership, he was doing the right thing.”

He continued, “But she doesn’t take herself very seriously…She has an absolutely superb sense of humor.”
