Queen Elizabeth news: Prince Charles to present award for Her Majesty as heartbroken monarch, 95, mourns closest friend


Prince Charles is expected to step out on behalf of his mother at a public engagement tomorrow, following the news that his mother’s longtime confidant and lady-in-waiting had died. 

The Queen suffered heartbreaking grief last week after her close friend, Ann Fortune Fitzroy, Duchess of Grafton, passed away at the age of 101.
