Why was Edward VIII not given a state funeral in Westminster Abbey? He
had been King. Was it because of the Abdication?
I would expect so.
The funerals for the death of Monarchs do not get accorded
to FORMER Monarchs.
When I read this, I immediately though of Princess Diana. I checked
Wikipedia and this is what they said:
"The event was not a state funeral, but a royal ceremonial funeral
including royal pageantry and Anglican funeral liturgy"
When you're right, you're right. Kudos.
