‘TIRED, GRIEVING’ QUEEN HEADS TO BALMORAL IN BID TO RISE ABOVE SCANDAL CAUSED BY PRINCE HARRY’S BOOK REVELATION
A “TIRED, grieving” Queen has gone to Balmoral in a bid to rise above the scandal caused by Prince Harry’s book revelation.
The monarch, 95, made her first trip away from Windsor since Prince Philip’s death. The Queen went to Scotland after telling aides she wants to avoid London as it holds painful memories of Philip, who died in April.
Our source said: “She could not wait to get away. She is still grieving very deeply and wanted to head to Balmoral to escape from things. She is also incredibly tired.
“The announcement of Harry’s book, and the new claims that he could release four books, are the last thing she needed. It is only just over three months since Philip was buried, so the book announcement is incredibly insensitive and seems another two fingers to the monarchy.
“But Her Majesty has told her family and staff that the only way to deal with it is to rise above it. “She has actually surprised some staff with her restrained reaction to the book — although the suggestion another could be released after she dies has not helped.”
