During the funeral of Prince Philip on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth was seen wiping away tears as she sat alone due to the COVID-19 pandemic in St George’s Chapel.

Daily Mail reported that the Queen, 94, looked heartbroken as she mourned her husband of 73 years. She arrived at the funeral as the national anthem played, and her royal Bentley stopped next to her beloved husband’s coffin, where she paused for a minute to reflect as cannons fired.

The day before the funeral, British television personality Piers Morgan said that it was “heartbreakingly sad” that the Queen would be forced to sit alone during it.

“The Queen, who has devoted her life to selfless public service, will be forced to sit all alone during the funeral of her husband of 73 years, due to covid restrictions,” he tweeted. “How heartbreakingly sad.”

“Thinking of The Queen today as she says goodbye to the love of her life,” Morgan added on Saturday morning.

Philip died last Friday at the age of 99, two months shy of his 100th birthday. Earlier this week, a source spoke out to say that the queen is “overwhelmed” by the support she’s received from around the globe in the wake of the death of her husband of 73 years.

“Elizabeth has found it cathartic to soak up all the well-wishes and tributes to the man she loved unconditionally for countless decades,” the source told US Weekly. “Seeing how many lives he touched has been nothing short of extraordinary.”

On Thursday, a spokesperson for the Queen released a statement on her behalf thanking well-wishers for their support.

“Her Majesty and the royal family are grateful for all the messages of condolence from around the world and have been touched to see and hear so many people sharing fond memories of the Duke in celebration of his life,” the statement read. “The tributes received from young and old are truly a testament to the remarkable life and lasting endeavours of His Royal Highness.”

Another source said that the entire royal family has found comfort in the fact that Philip passed away “very peacefully” at home.

“The whole family got a lot of comfort in knowing that he and Her Majesty got to be together in the sanctuary of Windsor Castle,” the source explained. “Spending time with Elizabeth, communicating with other loved ones, reading and relaxing in his home environment meant everything to Philip.”
