The royal family gathered for Prince Philip’s scaled-down funeral on April 17. “My family and I would like to thank you all for the support and kindness shown to us in recent days. “Each have an Audience of The Queen shortly after taking up their role.” 

The queen is still at her Windsor Castle home, where the funeral was held. Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, died at the age of 99 and was laid to rest at St. She said she and her family are “deeply touched” by the “support and kindness” they’ve been shown in the wake of her husband’s death. “While as a family we are in a period of great sadness, it has been a comfort to us all to see and to hear the tributes paid to my husband, from those within the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world,” Queen Elizabeth II said in a statement.
