For the first time in decades, the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth will be spending a birthday without her long-time husband, Prince Philip who passed away "peacefully" in his sleep earlier this month.
The Queen who is turning a great old 95 years, is still in a two-week-long mourning period following her husband's passing which makes her birthday this year an even sadder and somber occasion.
She will not be spending her special day alone though after recent reports revealed that her grandson, Prince Harry did not leave to go home to Los Angeles after the funeral but instead stayed in England to spend time with his grandma on her 95th birthday.
The Queen last week went viral after a snap of her sitting by herself during Prince Philip's funeral was shared online. In the snap, the Queen, who was dressed in all black with a gracious hat to match, can be seen practising social distancing at the funeral that only had 30 people in attendance.
It was also reported that still mourning the loss of Prince Phillip, who passed away earlier this month, media reports suggest that Prince Harry will stay in London for Queen Elizabeth’s 95th birthday this week.
The Duke of Sussex returned to the United Kingdom for the burial of his grandfather and it’s reported that he was scheduled to his trip short in for him to return to his heavily pregnant wife, Meghan Markle.
According to the Daily Express website, the latest information is that Harry may have to reschedule his plans and remain for the Queen's 95th birthday on Wednesday. The England-based publication has it that an informer has told The Sun that if all goes well, he could stay for the Queen's birthday.
