Queen Elizabeth ‘definitely died of a broken heart’, royal expert says.

The late monarch was married to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh from 1947 until his death in April 2021 aged 99, and died herself on September 8 aged 96 after a record-breaking 70-year reign with royal expert Cathy Nicholl explains although King Charles, who came to the throne at the time of his mother’s death, had a “hard time” watching his mother’s coffin being lowered into the royal vault during her funeral on Monday, Her late Majesty “got it all right”.

Katie said: “That moment when the Queen’s coffin was lowered into the royal vault was very, very powerful. Very emotional. It was very, very hard for the King to watch. But in reality, viewers may not realize that the Queen had it all worked out because the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin is in the same royal vault where it now lies, and they will both be interred together in this private ceremony, which will not be televised and will only for the next of kin.”

Katie went on to explain that Queen Elizabeth – who also had children Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward with Philip – “wanted” her late husband to wait in the royal vault so she and Philip could be buried together with his father King George, who died in 1952 aged 56, and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, who died in 2002 aged 101.

She told ETOnline: ‘And it was her wish that he wait for her in the royal vault. She said, ‘Don’t open my father’s vault,’ where they would all end up together, because she knew it wouldn’t be Soon, and she wanted this last journey to be made with Philip by her side.”
