The Queen, who turns 95 on April 21, has said she was “coping” after having attended the funeral of her devoted husband of 73 years on Saturday.

She was spotted on Sunday driving out of Windsor Castle in a green Jaguar.

The plan to support the Queen is said to have been formed by the female leading figures in the family, including her daughter Princess Anne, daughters-in-law the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex, supported by the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Queen is expected to have a series of regular visitors as she stays at Windsor Castle, where she has remained for most of the past 13 months as the coronavirus pandemic swept across the country.

A source told the Mirror: “The Queen will not be alone.

“She will have others who care about her deeply and want to be there to support her in her most pressing hour.

“In typical fashion the Queen has insisted she is coping and despite the suggestion she had prepared herself for this day to come, everyone is well aware there is nothing like the experience when it comes.”

The involvement of Prince Harry, if any, in the plan is uncertain but it’s thought he could stay in the country for his grandmother’s birthday after leaving his return flight to Los Angeles open.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, jetted into Heathrow eight days ago and self-isolated at Frogmore Cottage in Home Park at Windsor before he was cleared to attend Saturday’s funeral.

Harry’s ticket means he could fly back to the Californian home he shares with pregnant wife Meghan, 39, and 23-month-old Archie at any time.

Our source said: “If all goes well, he could stay for the Queen’s birthday.”

Nearly 14million viewers in the UK tuned in to watch the funeral of Prince Philip which was held under Covid conditions, meaning only 30 guests could attend.

Prince Charles is expected to visit his mother sometime this week, driving from his country home Highgrove in Gloucester, some 90-minutes away.


The Countess of Wessex has planned on a number of visits in the coming days, along with her children Louise, 17, and James, 13.

Princess Anne will also visit, coming from her home in Gloucestershire, Gatcombe Park.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who returned to London with Prince William and their three children, is said to have lined up a number of video calls.
