Like the anniversary of her father’s death –the day she became Queen– it is expected that Queen Elizabeth will mark April 9 privately.
A Service of Thanksgiving was held last week and attended by Royal Family. In a sweet tribute to Philip, the Queen wore green, his favourite colour.
The service honoured Prince Philip’s dedication to his family, nation, and Commonwealth, as stated by a press release shared by Buckingham Palace. The event also remembered his dedication to charitable organizations, the Armed Forces, conservation efforts, and the opportunities he provided for young people.
The service at Westminster Abbey in London was the first time Her Majesty was seen in public in five months due to health concerns.
