In a very moving moment at Prince Philip’s funeral, the Queen placed the note written on paper on the casket.
One of the most moving moments at Prince Philip’s funeral was when 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth II placed a handwritten note on the coffin of her former husband of 73 years.
During her funeral at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the note written on paper that seemed to say “Your love” could be seen, as well as “Lilibet”, a nickname that the monarch was given as a child and that it was the way the Duke of Edinburgh affectionately called him.
Elizabeth attended the funeral with only 30 close family members and had to sit alone due to Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines.
Buckingham Palace confirmed Philip’s death on April 9. He was 99 years old.
