Yeah that wouldn't go down well in the press. All of us would say to hell with it. There are many family near her and I am sure one or more could move in for a while.

I forgot Edward's kids who will be back at school so that will be a no because of their risk.

Most obvious is Andrew and/or Charles.

Apparently the Countess of Wessex spoke to a reporter as they were arriving at Windsor and she was in tears.

Sophie and Edward have just left Windsor Castle according to The Daily Telegraph's live blog

As she left Windsor Castle, the Countess of Wessex said "the Queen has been amazing".

Sophie spoke to reporters from a Land Rover driven by her husband, the Earl of Wessex.

The couple spent around an hour at the castle on Saturday morning

That's true, but there are 6 grand-children of Margarita alive, including Fuerst Philip, the current Head of the House and Fuerst Kraft's son.

The Duke of Cambridge has withdrawn from this weekend’s Bafta awards ceremony, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

His grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh – Bafta’s first president – died on Friday and William, who is the current president, was due to feature on Saturday in a pre-recorded conversation with costume designer Jenny Beavan and make-up and hair designer Sharon Martin, talking about filming in lockdown and the craft of film-making.

On Sunday, William was due to deliver a speech, via video, celebrating the resilience of the film industry over the past year.

For any Aussies who may have heard the PM this morning and heard him say that he will be going to St Andrew's Cathedral in Sydney tomorrow ... there will be a live stream of the service. I have already set my reminder but this is a link to the service.

I have been using the live stream from St Andrew's most of the past year as to get there I have to use public transport but with heart, and now an undiagnosed lung condition (I have a condition but until I see the specialist in early May I won't know exactly what it is and how it can be corrected) I won't use public transport.

I think even if no one stays with the Queen, she will not lack for support...her children/grandchildren will all be there for her..

Message of condolence by President Mattarella for the passing of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

The President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, has sent the following message to Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland:

“On behalf of the Italian Republic, I would like to offer my most sincere condolences to Your Majesty, the Royal Family and all the citizens of the United Kingdom on hearing the news of the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Many people worldwide remember his exemplary commitment to the Crown and the United Kingdom and his open-minded and innovative approach to the development of his country for over seventy years.

When visiting Italy, Prince Philip always showed sincere friendship towards the Italian people, who gratefully remember his deep appreciation for the artistic and cultural heritage of the Belpaese.

Your Majesty, please accept my deepest sympathy and the assurances of my highest consideration.”

An opinion piece by Tina Brown on The New York Times:
Prince Philip, the Man Who Walked Two Paces Behind the Queen

Quote:
(...)

In his decades as Elizabeth’s consort, Philip continued to seek ways to redefine the relevance of a modern monarchy and support her while carving out a hyperactive commitment to causes and interests of his own. Yet he never forgot his bond of duty. When he finally realized he was running out of steam, the queen’s frail liege lord of life and limb formally asked the monarch if she would release him from her service.

Gently, and with love, she let him go.

Given we haven’t seen or heard of her travelling to see her mother yet, I’ve wondered if maybe Anne is already staying at Windsor with The Queen.

In a way for those of us interested in royalty this is a strange time as a huge figure in the world royalty stage has passed yet because of the pandemic there is nothing really to see. No family out to greet well wishers, read tributes, lay flowers etc.
For the family I’m sure it is providing something of a relief that they can grieve so privately with no expectations of public appearances.

It was not only reported, but stated in an official press release. Since the moderators requested yesterday that discussion of the Duke's titles be kept in the Royal Duchies thread, I will repost it there.

The Countess of Wessex was really touched.
This is the time for the family to be together.
It is good to know that the Duke of Edinburgh's last wishes will be fulfilled and that he left as he wanted, at home.

No, I lost both my grandfathers when I was very young, and there are echoes of the same feelings. He was a fascinating man in whom many of us invested a lot of time and emotion, so I don't think it's strange we feel the loss here.

Quotes from Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward:


Prince Charles told the programme: "I think he'll probably want to be remembered as an individual in his own right."

Quote:
Reflecting on his father's difficult upbringing after his family was exiled, he said: "It can't have been easy and life was uncertain and everyone had to rely on other people to help - and presumably he had to fall back on himself."

This uncertain upbringing left him with the "extraordinary ability" to be positive and move on from adversity, said Princess Anne.

Prince Charles spoke of the "huge value" his father found in his education at Gordonstoun under its founder Kurt Hahn, an unconventional figure who emphasised self-reliance and risking - and who partly inspired the creation of the Duke of Edinburgh's award.

...

His mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, was buried in Jerusalem, where she is also honoured at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial as "Righteous Among the Nations" for protecting Jews at her house in Athens during World War Two.

"My father said, but hang on, how are we ever going to visit your grave?" the Prince of Wales recalled. "She said, don't be so silly, there's a very good bus service from Athens."
