- How will Queen Elizabeth II spend the sad day?
One year has passed since the death of Prince Philip. The husband of Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 99 last year on April 9.
Prince Philip's first death anniversary falls this Saturday, and it's sure to be an emotional day for the Queen. Royal fans are wondering how she's doing and how she'll spend the day.
How will the Queen spend Prince Philip's death anniversary?
The Queen herself has been dealing with health and mobility issues, which have cut down on her public appearances. For the first time in weeks, she actually had a rare outing for Prince Philip's memorial service in London last week.
But don't expect to see the Queen out and about again on her late husband's anniversary. According to Hello!, the 95-year-old plans to mark the occasion "in private" with her family on Saturday. Though social media tributes are certainly possible.
The Queen is now living at Windsor Castle permanently, so that's where she'll spend the sad anniversary. Her husband of 73 years Prince Philip died of "old age" on April 9, 2021.
Queen Elizabeth herself turns 96 this month. For the first time in her historic reign, she is finally beginning to show signs of her age. Health troubles have led to many recent cancellations, and the Queen essentially works from home now in Windsor.
Today, the monarch also cancelled an upcoming appearance on Maundy Day. The Queen will certainly be on the minds of royal fans on Saturday.
