Following Her Majesty’s death on September 8, 2022, Prince William paid an emotional tribute to this late grandmother:
“Thursday, the world lost an extraordinary leader whose devotion to the country, the empires and the Commonwealth was absolute. So much will be said in the coming days about the significance of her historic reign.
‘However, I have lost a grandmother. And while I will mourn her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful. I have benefited from the queen’s wisdom and reassurance into my fifth decade.
‘My wife has had her guidance and support for twenty years. My three children have to spend vacations with her and create memories that will last a lifetime.
She was by my side in my happiest moments. And she was by my side through the saddest days of my life.
“I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without grandma will feel real.
“I thank her for the kindness she has shown my family and me. And I thank her on behalf of my generation for setting an example of service and dignity in public life that was of a different age, but always relevant to all of us.
“My grandmother once said sadness was the price we pay for love. All the sadness we will feel in the coming weeks will be a testament to the love we felt for our extraordinary queen.
“I will honor her memory by supporting my father, The King, in every way I can.”
She was by my side in my happiest moments. And she was by my side through the saddest days of my life.’
On Her Majesty’s death, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge inherited the titles of The King and Queen Consort and became Prince and Princess of Wales.
Speaking of Kate and William’s ‘ruthless’ work schedule, Jennie said: ‘I think the work-life balance must have been tough these past few weeks and let’s face it, their new responsibilities aren’t going to get any easier.’
