Queen says Duke of Edinburgh’s death ‘has left a huge void’ in her life

“The Queen has said that the death of her beloved husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, has “left a huge void in her life”. In the monarch’s first reported comments on Prince Philip’s death, she was also said to have described her husband’s passing as a “miracle”. The Queen’s words were relayed by the Duke of York, as he left a church service in Windsor. Her Majesty is understood to have taken huge comfort in the warm tributes that have flooded in from across the globe. Prince Andrew, 61, described the depth of his mother’s grief as he spoke of how she had been coping in recent days. “The Queen, as you would expect, is an incredibly stoic person,” he said. “And she described his passing as a miracle. “She’s contemplating, I think is the way that I would put it. She described it as having left a huge void in her life, but we, the family, the ones that are closer, are rallying around to make sure that we’re there to support her.”” – Daily Telegraph
