Queen ‘kept Philip’s handkerchief and treasured photo in handbag during funeral’

Queen ‘kept Philip’s handkerchief and treasured photo in handbag during funeral’

The Queen carried fond reminders of her 73-year marriage to Prince Philip at his funeral, it has been reported.

She is said to have kept a photo of the pair as newlyweds in Malta shortly before she became Queen.

According to a royal insider, it sat in her handbag with one of the late duke’s handkerchiefs, which could often be seen folded neatly in the breast pocket of his suit on public engagements.

The items were the closest comforts available to her at times, as coronavirus restrictions forced her to sit separately from her family during the ceremony.

The scaled-down commemoration included just 30 guests, the maximum currently allowed, in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Prince Philip, who died aged 99 on April 9, was laid to rest on Saturday afternoon.

The Queen is thought to have left a handwritten note on the duke’s coffin signed ‘Lillibet’, a childhood nickname which he continued to call her by until his passing.

She also laid a wreath of flowers she had specially selected for the occasion.

WINDSOR, ENGLAND - APRIL 17: Queen Elizabeth II takes her seat during the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on April 17, 2021 in Windsor, England. Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark was born 10 June 1921, in Greece. He served in the British Royal Navy and fought in WWII. He married the then Princess Elizabeth on 20 November 1947 and was created Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, and Baron Greenwich by King VI. He served as Prince Consort to Queen Elizabeth II until his death on April 9 2021, months short of his 100th birthday. His funeral takes place today at Windsor Castle with only 30 guests invited due to Coronavirus pandemic restrictions. (Photo by Jonathan Brady - WPA Pool/Getty Images)

The Malta photograph was one of the pair’s most treasured mementos, according to the royal source cited by MailOnline.

Philip was stationed on the Mediterranean island from 1949 to 1951 as a naval officer.

The Queen recalled ‘happy’ memories living there in a speech delivered during a three-day state visit in 2015.

Malta would prove to be last foreign country she visited before handing responsibility for overseas visits to her children and grandchildren.

Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward walked behind Philip’s coffin during the funeral procession, followed by his grandsons, son-in-law, and the Queen’s nephew, the Earl of Snowdon.

The family will continue to grieve this week, although the period of national mourning has now ended.
