Uneducated questions from a small town American

I noticed that Prince Harry(can I call him Prince?) did not stop at the church alter after his Grandfather's funeral service and nod. Was this a sign of having left the Church of England? Is it a big deal?

1. I noticed the same thing

Perhaps he was just distracted by being back, and uncomfortable with the whole family situation. It could not have been easy. Some of the family was pretty chilly (particularly Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie). Some much more welcoming. The entire family was so obviously grief stricken. Sometimes that can heal a rift. Sometimes it can deepen it.

He should be heading back to his wife and son, real soon, maybe with some degree of healing.

2. I didn't consider that.

He has been away from any regular religious services that would be familiar for him.

3. After reading things about the "royal rift" at the funeral I get the feeling that the press

7. Is "nodding" a practice like Holy Water going into a church or bowing while crossing the front of

the alter? Both are R.C. practices.

9. It's by no means a universal CofE practice

I would say it depends on whether your parents taught you to do it (did William?), or you've gone in for some formal role in the church (I think it's something I've noticed that priests, lay readers, and so on are likely to do). Though atheist now, I was confirmed as a teenager in the CofE, and it wasn't taught to us as a "you should be doing this".
