Queen ‘still in mourning’ as royal fans note ‘coordinated’ silence on Philip


THE QUEEN is “still in mourning” for Prince Philip as the Royal Family kept all social media quiet when she reached her wedding anniversary, royal commentators have claimed.

“You noticed this, there were no social media from the family.

“The only acknowledgment was from Westminster Abbey who released a copy of the wedding programme and full list of service from the big day.

“What’s interesting is a coordinated social media push feels just as nothing about it which makes me think she is still in mourning. It’s only been seven months since Philip passed.”

It is also a month since the Queen was admitted to hospital overnight for preliminary investigations and ordered by her royal doctors to rest.

The 95-year-old, who also sprained her back and pulled out of attending the Remembrance Sunday service, has only been carrying out light duties since her October 20 hospital stay, including a face-to-face audience this week with the outgoing military chief General Sir Nick Carter.

Princess Elizabeth married the dashing Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten in Westminster Abbey on November 20 1947.

Their enduring relationship lasted the longest of any British sovereign and Philip was at the Queen’s side throughout the decades, supporting her as she devoted herself to her role as head of state.

Following his death in April, the Queen said she and her family were in a “period of great sadness”, but that she was comforted by the tributes paid to him.

“We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life,” she said.

Philip’s funeral was held during coronavirus restrictions with the numbers strictly limited and the final farewell taking place entirely within the confines of Windsor Castle.

In the days after the duke’s death, the Palace released a picture from the royal family’s private photo albums of the Queen and Philip relaxing together, sitting on the grass at the Coyles of Muick, a beauty spot on the Balmoral estate.

The Queen has since attended a rare royal double christening at Windsor.

Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall hosted the joint baptism of their sons at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire, on Sunday evening.
