She came unpainted and could hardly stand on her feet: the heartbroken Queen Elizabeth said goodbye to her husband
Queen Elizabeth said goodbye to her husband In England, they said goodbye to Prince Philip, who died in the hundredth year of his life on April 9, 2021. Strange as it may seem, but the Duke of Edinburgh began preparations for his own funeral long ago, when he still felt in perfect order. Even then, the Queen’s husband took part in the development of a personal hearse based on a Land Rover car, and a little later he gave instructions that close relatives would hold the farewell ceremony as quietly as possible, without unnecessary noise and fanfare.
The preparations for Prince Philip’s funeral were even codenamed Operation Fort Bridge. Fort Bridge itself is a bridge connecting Edinburgh and Perth, at the opening of which in 1964 the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were personally present. By the way, as reportedMK.ru, a similar plan, when the time comes, is also available for the farewell to Queen Elizabeth, called “Operation London Bridge”. Queen Elizabeth said goodbye to her husband
The funeral service began at 15:00 with a national minute of silence. The coffin with the body of Prince Philip was taken to the church for worship. But not all the participants in the procession went to the chapel of St. George. Due to restrictive measures related to the coronavirus, only members of the royal family, including Elizabeth II, attended the funeral service.
I must say that the grief-stricken queen looked completely depressing. Getting out of the car, Elizabeth barely stood on her feet. At the same time, even with the naked eye, it was noticeable that in just a week the monarch had noticeably lost weight and haggard. Moreover, in order to say goodbye to her beloved husband, the queen decided not to wear makeup and for the first time in many years appeared in public without makeup.
