Queen returns to royal duties after death of Prince Philip

Queen returns to royal duties after death of Prince Philip

The British Queen returns to royal duties, four days after the death of her dear husband. Prince Philip has passed away last Friday.

Queen Elizabeth II shows the best of the best example of braveness. Despite the toughest-ever times, the 94-year-old British monarch returns to her royal duties. On Tuesday morning, Her Majesty attended a retirement ceremony for a senior royal official, according to the Court Circular, the official record of royal engagements.

The queen attended a ceremony at Windsor Castle for Lord Chamberlain Earl Peel, who has retired as the royal household’s most senior official. He oversaw arrangements for the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh, until handing over to his successor days before the prince’s death.

According to the Buckingham Palace, Duke’s’s funeral will take place Saturday at Windsor Castle, with attendance limited to 30 because of pandemic restrictions. As AFP has learned, Prince Philip’s coffin will be borne to St. George’s Chapel at the castle on a specially adapted Land Rover, which he designed himself.
