Brenda Edwards appeared to have son Jamal firmly in her thoughts as she attended a reception at Buckingham Palace yesterday (June 9).
And it appears her late son Jamal, who died recently, was held close in her thoughts as she met the royals.
Brenda Edwards in secret nod to son at Buckingham Palace
The trio of Loose Women stars were at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Commonwealth Diaspora.
The event celebrates the important contribution the population of the Commonwealth brings to the UK.
As a result, hundreds of guests were welcomed to the palace, from celebrities to key figures representing the arts, education, the NHS and the charity sector.
Brenda, meanwhile, attended with Judi and Charlene and a video showed the trio chatting to the Prince of Wales, with Judi belting out that she was enjoying the champagne.
Brenda’s conversation with Prince Charles appeared a little more sedate, though.
Although no details could be heard, she did pay a touching tribute to her late son Jamal with her attire.
Brenda was seen wearing a royal blue jumpsuit paired with a lighter blue jacket.
On her wrist, she wore a bracelet bearing Jamal’s name.
Brenda Edwards on son Jamal’s shock death
Jamal died earlier this year after suffering a sudden heart attack.
Earlier this month, Brenda sadly revealed that the heart attack was caused by Jamal’s use of recreational drugs.
She said that she was “in shock” after finding out her son’s cause of death.
Admitting she was “still trying to process” the news, Brenda confirmed that Jamal died due to “cardiac arrhythmia” which is caused by “having taken recreational drugs”.
Jamal’s link with the royals
Jamal was, of course, no stranger to the royals.
Back in 2015, he was awarded an MBE for services to music.
