Now, it is reported the Queen is using her closed family members for support.

A source told US Weekly: “It’s a lot to take on. But as usual, Elizabeth is handling the stress and sadness with great dignity.

“Prince William, Duchess Kate, Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles and Princess Beatrice are rallying around Elizabeth, even Princess Eugenie who has just given birth is checking in.

“Prince Charles, in particular, is making a real effort to step up. Elizabeth is the first to admit that he has been her pillar of strength.”

ED! has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
