He will be at her side to support her. After more than 70 years of love, Elizabeth II lost the love of her life. Prince Philip passed away “peacefully at Windsor Castle” on April 9 at the age of 99. It was Buckingham Palace that shared the sad news. On April 17, her funeral took place in St. George’s Chapel and the Queen of England had moved viewers as she found herself sitting alone in front of her late husband’s coffin. From now on, it is all alone that she will have to continue her royal engagements. However, as the Daily Mail reported on April 11, Prince Philip spoke at length with his son during his hospitalization and asked him to take care of Elizabeth II following his death. Thus, as reported by The Mirror this Sunday, April 25, it is logical that Prince Charles will be alongside his mother for the opening ceremony of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which will take place on May 11. There is no doubt that the Prince of Wales will be very present for the Queen of England during his next outings.
Following the death of Prince Philip, the Queen of England can count on the support of the royal family. As reported by The Sun this Sunday, April 25, Prince Charles is not the only one whose role will become more important. “It is obvious that the Queen does not want the crown to skip a generation and that Prince Charles will play an even more important role within the royal family”, first clarified a member of the staff of Buckingham Palace , before talking about Prince William and his wife. “With the departure of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, one would think it is time for Kate Middleton and her husband to take center stage,” said the same person. “We are undoubtedly in a period of change with the Queen of England who is at the top and who gives more and more responsibilities to the Prince of Wales but also to Prince William”. According to this source, more responsibility would therefore mean that “Kate will be more and more put forward compared to what the British have seen in the last two years. She has definitely gained confidence and will be able to do it without any worries. “, she concluded.
