Jacqui added to the Mail that she thinks William said ‘let’s go in’ to his son, before they entered the church.

Meanwhile, royal fans thought the Queen looked ‘frail’ as she attended the service for her late husband.

Eyebrows were raised as Her Majesty was accompanied to Westminster Abbey by disgraced royal, Prince Andrew.

Her appearance at the ceremony has renewed fears about her health, which have been circulating since late last year.

She has missed out on several high profile appearances, as well as being diagnosed with Covid just weeks ago.

Twitter users took to the social media platform to share their views.

One said: “Watching our Queen has just broke my heart. She is so frail but still so dignified. I really hope this isn’t the last time we see the Queen in public.”

Another commented: “The Queen looks frail but I am glad to see her.”

Prince Philip passed away on April 9, 2021.

His funeral had to be largely scaled back due to Covid restrictions and photos of the Queen sitting alone broke the nation’s hearts then too.
