LONDON, UK: Queen Elizabeth II now lies at Westminster Hall, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Sophie, Countess of Wessex have paid a touching tribute to the late monarch. In the message, Prince Edward, the monarch’s youngest son, thanked Queen Elizabeth II for her many years of service.

Prince Edward said the Queen’s death last week left an “unimaginable void in all of our lives”. In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, the late monarch’s youngest son said: “As a family we grew up learning to share our parents, especially our beloved mama, with the nation, its wealthy and the Commonwealth. Although it was nice Having spent time saying goodbye privately in Balmoral, now is the time to give others the opportunity to say goodbye.”


He added: “We have been blown away by the flood of emotions that has flooded us and the sheer number of people who have gone out of their way to express their own love, admiration and respect for such a special and unique person, who was always there for us. And now we are here for them, united in sorrow. Thanks for your support, you have no idea how much it means. The Queen’s death has left an unimaginable hole in all of our lives. Sophie and I took great pleasure in seeing our James and Louise enjoying the places and activities that their grandparents loved so much. Since my mom let us spend so much time with her, I think she really enjoyed seeing those passions blossom, too. These shared memories, these happy times, have now become very precious for each and every one of us. May God bless Her Majesty and may her memory be long cherished even as the baton she has carried for the last 70 years now passes to the next generation and to my brother, Charles, Long Live the King.”

Thousands of mourners visited Manchester yesterday to pay their respects to the Queen and Prince Edward and Countess Sophie were there to meet her, Daily Mail reported. The couple took part in the procession that carried the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall on Wednesday. At Westminster Hall earlier in the week, Edward and Sophie paid tribute to the monarch with their children, Lady Louse and Viscount Severn.
