Queen Says “Thanks” For Support At Sad Time

The Cotswolds, along with the rest of the country, have been given a right royal “thank you”.

In a statement issued on her 95th birthday and following the recent funeral of Prince Philip, Her Majesty The Queen said, “While as a family we are in a period of great sadness, it has been a comfort to us all to see and to hear the tributes paid to my husband from those within the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world.

“My family and I would like to thank you for all the support and kindness shown to us in recent days.

“We have been deeply touched and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life.”

The Queen also added that on her birthday she had received many messages of good wishes, which she very much appreciated.
