Queen Elizabeth Issues Her First Statement Without Prince Philip

Queen Elizabeth is making her first solo statement.

The 94-year-old royal shared her sympathy to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines following the volcanic eruptions that have displaced about 20% of the Caribbean island’s population in what is her first solo statement since the death of Prince Philip.

Typically, statements from the royal began with “The Duke of Edinburgh and I.” This is the first statement to not include her late husband, beginning simply with “I.”

“I have been saddened by the destruction and major disruption caused by volcanic eruptions in recent days, and my thoughts are with the many people and families who have been evacuated from their homes, and whose livelihoods have been affected. I send my thanks to the emergency services and all those involved in the relief effort,” she said.

“My prayers will remain with the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines at this very difficult time.”

She has not yet publicly addressed Prince Philip‘s death, aside from the official announcement.

The Queen returned to royal duties recently for this reason.

The Palace released never-before-seen photos of the royal family following the death of Prince Philip.

Here is how to watch Prince Philip‘s funeral this weekend. Find out who will be attending.
