I'm not particularly for or against the Royal Family.
What had to be remembered that not only was Prince Philip a very senior Royal, but also someone's husband, father, grandfather etc etc. So to celebrate his death is completely wrong.
However, I do think the media , TV in particular, went completely ott. Was there any need for the three main terrestrial channels to devote their entire programming schedule to telling us the same thing over and over again.
Yes, his passing required to be reported, but an hour or hour and a half long programme would have been more than enough.
