Elizabeth II is dead. Prince Edward: the departure of the Queen has left an unimaginable void

“May God bless Her Majesty and let her memory be cherished for a long time” – wrote in the statement published on Friday, the youngest son of Elizabeth II, Prince Edward and his wife Zofia, Countess of Wessex. They admitted that after their death, the monarchs were “overwhelmed by a wave of emotions.” “The departure of the Queen has left an unimaginable void in our entire life,” they added.

“As a family, we grew up learning to share our parents, especially our beloved mom, with the Nation, her kingdoms and the Commonwealth. While it was wonderful to be able to spend time on our private goodbye in Balmoral, now is the time to let others say their goodbyes. “- indicated in a joint statement after the death of Elizabeth II her youngest son Prince Edward and his wife Countess Wessex Sophia.

“And now we are for her, united in sorrow. Thank you for your support, you have no idea what it means. The departure of the queen has left an unimaginable void in our entire life,” they wrote.
