George HW Bush, the former US president, was remembered as a "noble" man of “great humility” on Wednesday at a state funeral attended by much of America’s political establishment. Emotional eulogies from his son and friends remembered the 41st president as a “class act” who dedicated his life to public service and embodied courage, both political and personal.    In a service dominated by the messages of unity and patriotism, speakers praised Mr Bush’s opposition to “unthinking partisanship” and awareness that “hatred corrodes”.  Jon Meacham, a presidential historian, summed up Mr Bush’s approach to life as “tell the truth, don’t blame people, be strong, do your best, try hard, forgive, stay the course”. The messages were interpreted as a call for civility in politics at a time when the country is bitterly divided along party lines. Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and their wives sit together for George H W Bush's fun...

The nation's capital bids its final farewell to the late former President George HW Bush on Wednesday in a service of prayer and praise that is drawing together world envoys, Americans of high office and five current and former presidents. A ceremony at Washington National Cathedral, the nexus of state funerals, caps three days of remembrance by dignitaries and ordinary citizens as they honored the Republican president who oversaw the post-Cold War transition and led a successful Gulf War, only to lose re-election in a generational shift to Democrat Bill Clinton in 1992. The four living ex-presidents are present - among them, George W Bush will eulogise his father - and President Donald Trump will attend but is not scheduled to speak. Also attending: Prince Charles on behalf of the Queen, King Abdulla and Queen Rania of Jordan, Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel and Poland's president Andrzej Duda, among representatives of more than a dozen countries. The atmosphere...

The 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT) memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral will display an unusual bipartisan spirit, with both Republican and Democratic politicians gathering to hail the life of a president who called for a "kinder, gentler" nation. Bush's son, former President George W. Bush, will deliver a eulogy, along with former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, retired Wyoming Republican Senator Alan Simpson and presidential biographer and former journalist Jon Meacham. "You'll see a lot of joy," said Ron Kaufman, who was George H.W. Bush's White House political director in his unsuccessful re-election campaign in 1992.

  Donald Trump will attend the funeral of former US president George H W Bush on Wednesday, capping days of public praise for the Bush family and ending a feud that has simmered at the heart of the Republican Party for years.  Mr Trump is expected to sit in a row of the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, alongside former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter for the service.  The US president has clashed in the past with Mr Bush, America’s 41st president who died aged 94 on Friday, and his son George W Bush, the 43rd president who did not vote for Mr Trump in the 2016 election.  Mr Trump once mocked Mr Bush Snr’s well-known “thousand points of light” phrase, used to describe the positive impact volunteers have on the country, asking “what the hell is that?”, and was fiercely critical of both the former president’s sons.  Mr Trump repeatedly criticised Mr Bush Jnr’s policies, not least his Middle Eastern military intervention, and defeated Jeb Bu...
