Everyone saw the picture. of Her Majesty sitting alone. It would have been the same for any other family, the hardest part is not being able to hug those closest to the lost person. ” Emotionally, Peter Phillips explained: “It’s the same with a lot of families. There have been great sadnesses, but at the same time you have to try to take the positive out of these situations, whether it’s new life or happy memories is what you need to focus on. ” Finally, Princess Anne’s son added when referring to Prince Philip: “He was an essential part in our lives. We miss him dearly. He has lived a remarkable life and if any of us can even live the half of his life, we would all be extraordinarily happy. “
