Queen Elizabeth wipes tears at Prince Philip funeral



Queen Elizabeth wipes tears at Prince Philip funeral


Queen Elizabeth II said her last goodbye to Prince Philip at his funeral in April. The 95 year old was seen wiping away a tear on the solemn day.

Her Majesty seemed heartbroken and bent her head in respect as she accompanied her beloved husband’s coffin on its last voyage, while their oldest son, Prince Charles, sobbed as he walked behind the casket into church, followed by other bereaved royals.

Elizabeth was seen touching her black-gloved hands to her eyes and fixing her mask as she sat in the rear of her black Bentley, after the funeral procession.

“The Queen wipes away a tear as she says goodbye to her husband of 73 years,” the Royal Central captioned the photo of the incident.

Sally Bedell Smith, a royal biographer, told USA Today:


“She is a woman of deep feeling but she works very hard to present an impassive face.”

“It’s partly due to her role, and partly her temperament and the way she was brought up.”

The queen wore a black coat, hat, and face mask to the memorial service for her late husband on Saturday, April 17.

While the royal family gathered for a celebration of life event in honor of the late Duke of Edinburgh, who died at the age of 99, all eyes were on the queen, who sat in a row by herself out of precaution owing to the coronavirus epidemic.

On April 9, Buckingham Palace announced Philip’s death. “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the family’s statement read. “His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

By the time the Queen arrived at the church and during the solemn ceremony that followed, the queen was obviously gloomy but in command of herself.

Camilla wore the Rifles Brooch, while the Queen wore Queen Mary’s Richmond Brooch.

Philip’s grandchildren were also there, including Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise, and James, Viscount Severn.

The couple bonded over their very unique living circumstances for the duration of their 73-year marriage. “They were two unique people, and only they knew what it was like to be them,” royal biographer Ingrid Seward, author of Prince Philip Revealed, told Us exclusively. “And they were in unique circumstances, they shared things. For instance, when they were younger, they were constantly traveling around the Commonwealth and around the world. And then Phillip used to go off on his own, but when they were together, they could share everything. I think it actually would have been an almost impossible job for someone to do on their own. So it was a partnership, a very unique partnership.”

People who knew Philip well say he would be happy with the fewer numbers since he always insisted on “no fuss” in the event of his death. People who stayed at home for the funeral decorated their houses with Union Flags and photographs of the duke and his wife, and many ate traditional full English breakfasts or afternoon teas while watching the funeral on TV.

Just before the Duke of Edinburgh’s burial ceremony began, the United Kingdom held a minute of silence throughout the country.

    Elsewhere while the grieving woman was forced to sit alone….even after having driven TO the funeral with a close friend by her side….a snookers championship was taking place.
    The incredible randomness and hypocrisy of the Covid laws is what has normal people appalled.
