The Queen enjoying the life ‘Prince Philip would have wanted’ admits royal expert

She has been all smiles during her recent engagements

The Queen is reportedly living “the life Prince Philip would have wanted” after returning to Royal engagements.

The 95-year-old monarch has hit the road in recent weeks, with an emphasis on in-person visits.

And all the while Her Majesty has done so with a smile on her face.

What did the Royal expert say about the Queen?

Royal expert Phil Dampier told the Daily Mail that while the Queen was devastated at her husband of 73 years’ death, she’s now living life to full.

“Some might think it is strange that she is so happy so soon after Prince Philip’s death, but I think there is a simple explanation,” he said.

“I’m sure she was devastated by his passing – after all they were married for 73 years. But I’m sure that he told her to enjoy what was left of her own life.

“He would not want her to sit around mourning him like Queen Victoria did for Albert, and I bet he would want her to carry on living life to the full.”

“New energy”

Phil went on to say that since the easing of lockdown, the Queen has found “new energy” since her husband’s passing.

During lockdown, the Royal couple spent a lot of time together looking back over their lives, he added.

Calling Her Majesty “practical and pragmatic” Phil also said that the Duke’s death had been expected.

But now, accompanied by close family members, she has attacked Royal engagements with “enthusiasm”.
