Queen Elizabeth is allegedly struggling to cope with the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

In its April 23 issue, Us Weekly claimed that there are some major fears for Her Majesty. After all, she and the Duke of Edinburgh were married for 73 years.

Just before Prince Philip passed away, he was rushed to the hospital, where he got heart surgery. A source claimed that the monarch knew that there could be some risks. And she’s also aware that her husband isn’t getting any younger.

But when the dad of four took his last breath, the queen still wasn’t allegedly prepared. Now, family and friends of Her Majesty are worried that she would suffer a downward spiral following her husband’s demise.

And to make things worse, they are also worried that the queen might follow Prince Philip to the grave.

“She’s inconsolable. She’s keeping busy but it’s with a heavy heart. There are legitimate fears from those close to the queen about how she will manage without Philip by her side,” the source said.

Last year and until earlier this year, the queen and Prince Philip also spent a lot of time together because of the coronavirus pandemic. The very busy couple quarantined at Windsor Castle together. So, they had plenty of memories to share.

The queen also felt that it was a blessing to be able to spend much time with Prince Philip before he passed away because she knew that he didn’t have long to live.

After all, the Duke of Edinburgh was allegedly already very frail just before his passing.

Meanwhile, the queen has officially returned to her royal duties just days after Prince Philip’s death was announced. The tabloid’s source said that Her Majesty is drowning herself in work as means to cope with the grief.

Since the queen is already 94, the people around her want her to slow down. They’re worried that if she works too much, she might also pass away.

However, there’s no stopping the queen. She has been a hard worker ever since she was young.

The queen will be attending Prince Philip’s funeral at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday. She will be joined by her four children, grandchildren, and some of Prince Philip’s relatives.

Her Majesty is following her husband’s wish of having an intimate funeral. And because of COVID-19, only a total of 19 guests are allowed to join the ceremony.
