In addition, Mr Fitzwilliams added: “He always wanted the minimum of fuss, insisting that he got on with the job and did his best.

“However his memory will have a very special place in the nation’s affections and the Queen will, I am sure, take comfort from this.

“His superhuman energy and tireless zeal in supporting the Queen and the institution of monarchy are, however, irreplaceable.”

Meanwhile, according to another royal expert, the Queen may enjoy a Zoom call with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their newborn daughter Lilibet on Thursday.
