Penny Junor told The Sun: “After all those years of having Philip by her side, both as a loving husband and a supportive consort, no-one will ever fill the void in the Queen’s life left by him.

“But she has the love of a nation and her own family to support her through the coming months.

“And she know she can always rely on Sophie and Kate.”

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Her Majesty released a statement to thank people for their birthday wishes.
