I think that tributes are so important, because you see a side to a person that we may not know. And with celebrities, we really know nothing about a person.
I can’t imagine being The Royal Family and mourning Prince Philip while all the world watches. It’s too much to handle.
My heart would break having to do that.
Princess Eugenie posted a touching tribute on her social media about her Grandfather.
“Dearest Grandpa, We all miss you,” she started her Instagram post, which included a few pictures of her Grandfather with her.
“You would be so touched by all the tributes that have been shared with me the past few days. People remember sitting next to you at a dinner, or shaking your hand once, who remember you saying hello in passing, or remember how much their DofE award meant to them,” she said. “I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy.”
She finished the post with, “I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day. I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer. I will remember you in your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren. Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with The Royal Family at this time.
