Queen Elizabeth has already changed after the death of Prince Philip. The ruling monarch has begun the process of rearranging her royal duties as she reigns alone for the first time in almost 70 years.
It has been reported that the Queen will now rule directly from Windsor Castle where the couple spent the last year quarantined together throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Prior, she reigned from Buckingham Palace in the heart of London, England.
The Daily Mail reported that the queen will not endure a lengthy period of mourning after Philip is laid to rest. Rather, it was reported she will resume her official duties sooner than later.
In fact, just days after Philip’s death on April 9, the Queen temporarily returned to work to say farewell to her lord chamberlain of the past 15 years, Earl Peel. On April 15, she carried out two other tasks for the Commonwealth, including a virtual audience with Canadian premier Justin Trudeau and the Governor-General of Australia, David Hurley.
Queen Elizabeth made one change to Prince Philip's funeral plans
According to the Daily Mail, The queen’s staff have reportedly been told that all official business will be conducted from Windsor. While she will work at Buckingham Palace, she will not live there, nor does she have plans of stepping down from the throne.
Queen Elizabeth adhered to all of Philip’s final wishes for his funeral, but she did change one thing.
She instructed the small group of mourners gathered at St. George’s Chapel not to wear military uniforms as to avoid any impending issues with her grandson Prince Harry and son Prince Andrew. Harry had the honorary military titles given to him by his grandfather removed, including the Captain General of the Royal Marines, when he stepped back from his official duties as a senior member of the monarchy. Prince Andrew, who had personal ties to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, was made an honorary Vice Admiral of the Royal Navy in 2015. He stepped down from his duties and away from royal life in 2020 (via Entertainment Tonight).
The last widow who served on the throne was Queen Victoria, who lost her husband Prince Albert when she was just 42 years old (via The Daily Mail).
