To lose your loved ones is very difficult to anyone including Queen Elizabeth II, after she lost her husband of 74 years.
An expert said that the Queen will be stepping back from her royal duties gradually.
In fact shortly after his death she is back to work, putting a brave face on her virtual audiences.
Her duties are to be short-lived. In this time she will be preparing to step back, as a royal expert says.
It is unlikely that she will return to her busy meetings schedule, receptions and garden parties.
Possibly Prince Charles will have to take on extra duties. Prince Philip has given advice to him on how to lead the royal family.
