I wrote about the date my parents got married was the same day as the Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh married. There have been many special shows remembering the Prince Philip, in particular on BBC. As I hear more about their details, I found that birth years of them are exactly the same with my parents. i.e. Prince Philip was 26 and the Queen was 21 when they got married. So were my parents.
As I watch the special show in which many people talked about his personality and his dedication, and I watch gun salute etc. I feel that the long era for the British Commonwealth as we know is now over. Whenever I find that the era is over, I feel sad. This occasion is even more emotional and moving for me, as it goes parallel to my parents life.
