Queen Elizabeth II, 94, is mourning the loss of her husband Prince Philip, who sadly passed away at the age of 99. She was spotted for the first time since his death, walking her beloved corgis on the grounds of Windsor Castle, where the Duke of Edinburgh will be laid to rest at St George’s Chapel.
Her Majesty drove her green Jaguar X-type through the grounds of the property, and a single guard stood by her as she headed towards Frogmore Gardens, where her grandson Prince Harry is believed to be self-isolating ahead of the April 17 funeral.
Queen Elizabeth II, who was married to Prince Philip for more than seven decades, will officially lay him to rest at a service attended by a select group of family members. The guest list will include just 30 people, amid strict COVID-19 regulations in the U.K.
Her son Prince Edward, his wife Sophie and their 17-year-old daughter Lady Louise Windsor were also seen arriving on the grounds of the castle, and looked at floral tributes left for Prince Philip by mourners outside the church.
It comes as The Daily Mail reported the Queen was “bearing up well” ahead of the service. “Final preparations are going on today and she is in control,” a source told the outlet, noting that she will be “confirming her outfit” with her longtime confidante and dresser Angela Kelly. “She is also going to be visited by her hairdresser Ian Carmichael,” the source added.
