King Charles III and his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, are “deeply touched” by the outpouring of support for the Royal Family following the death of Queen Elizabeth II nearly two weeks ago.

“Over the past ten days, my wife and I have been so deeply touched by the many messages of condolence and support we have received from this country and around the world,” he wrote in a statement released by Buckingham Palace.

“In London, Edinburgh, Hillsborough and Cardiff, we were moved beyond measure by all who took the trouble to come and pay tribute to the long service of my dear mother, the late Queen.”

Her Majesty celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June, which honored her with seven decades on the throne as the longest-serving monarch in British history. Elizabeth died aged 96 on September 8 at Balmoral Castle.

“It must have been so difficult for her to be a lonely woman,” the Queen consort said during an interview for a BBC program airing on Sunday ahead of the Queen’s funeral. “There were no female prime ministers or presidents. She was the only one, so I think she carved out her own role.”

Camilla added: “She’s been a part of our lives forever. I’m 75 now, and I don’t remember anyone other than the Queen being there.”

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were just a few world leaders to pay their respects to the sovereign at Westminster Hall ahead of her funeral on Monday. Ukraine’s first lady, Olena Zelenska, also paid tribute to the late monarch amid the ongoing war in her country.

The Duke of Sussex was allowed to wear a military uniform at the wake despite his father initially not allowing him to dress as a senior royal after stepping down from family responsibilities years ago when he moved to the United States with his wife Meghan Markle.

But a surprising missing element from the insignia was an “ER” symbol, which was sewn onto Prince Williams’ shoulder and also visible on Prince Andrew’s.

Andrew is no longer a senior member of the royal family after his friendship with late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein developed. The prince was later accused of sexual assault by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and banned from using the titles “HRH”.

“We don’t know why the initials were removed from Prince Harry’s uniform, but I’ve been told Prince Harry was so upset by the removal that he seriously considered not wearing his uniform during the vigil. “, royal expert Kinsey Schofield exclusively told Fox News Digital. .
