THE Queen yesterday spoke publicly about Prince Philip for the first time since his death.
Her Majesty, 95, recalled the “many happy memories” she and her husband shared as she officially opened the new session of the Scottish parliament at Holyrood last week.
She told MSPs in the socially distanced debating chamber: “I have spoken before of my deep and abiding affection for this wonderful country, and of the many happy memories Prince Philip and I always held of our time here.
“It is often said that it is the people that make a place, and there are few places where this is truer than in Scotland, as we have seen in recent times,” she added in a clear reference to how much she misses Philip.
