Her Majesty The Queen attended a private mass at Windsor Castle on Sunday as other members of The Royal Family attended a service at All Saints Chapel, Royal Lodge. It is understood that Her Majesty did not attend mass in the private chapel where The Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin is at rest.
The Queen, as Head of the Church of England, has a deep Christian faith and will be drawing upon this in her time of need and grief.
The Sun also reports that the private mass would not have taken place in St George’s Chapel as this is currently closed ahead of The Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral there on Saturday 17th April.
The Duke of York, The Earl and Countess of Wessex and Lady Louise Windsor attended a service at All Saints Chapel on Sunday. The group then took the time to talk with reporters waiting outside the Chapel where The Duke of York said the death of The Duke of Edinburgh had been described by The Queen as leaving “a huge void in her life.”
The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday 9th April at Windsor Castle aged 99. His funeral will take place at St George’s Chapel on Saturday. Only 30 members of family will be attending owing to ongoing Coronavirus restrictions.
