He added: “Grandma, although this last goodbye brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories with you to the first time I met you as my commander in chief, to the first moment that you met my dear wife and embraced your beloved great-grandchildren.
“I cherish these moments I’ve shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not only by us, but by the whole world.
“And as for the first encounters, we now honor my father in his new role as King Charles III. Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice.
‘Thank you for your infectious smile. We smile too, knowing that you and Grandpa are now reunited, and both in peace together.’
