(JustPatriots.com)- “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski choked up on camera as she covering the royal procession of Queen Elizabeth II. Following the funeral at Westminster Abby, the Queen’s coffin was en route to Windsor Castle where she was buried next to King George VI and The Queen Mother Elizabeth; her husband, Prince Philip; and sister, Princess Margaret.
