Princess Beatrice’s Husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Mourns Queen

Princess Beatrice’s husband mourned the death of “rock” Queen Elizabeth II with heartfelt tributes on social media.

“Incredibly difficult to process the past 24 hours. What an incredible woman and an extraordinary mark she left on the whole world. She was the rock on which modern Britain is built,” Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi wrote on Instagram on Friday over a slideshow of photos of the late monarch.

“We are very lucky that our little ones were able to spend time with her this summer. rest is [sic] Peace Your Majesty. We will miss you so much. Broken heart .”

Beatrice and her sister, Princess Eugenie, have not yet released a statement.

Elizabeth, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, died Thursday after 70 years on the throne. She was 96.

“The Queen passed away peacefully in Balmoral this afternoon,” the royal family tweeted. “The King and Queen Consort remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.”

The stunning announcement came after the Firm shared that doctors were “concerned” about the Queen’s health and had placed her “under medical supervision”.

Since the Queen died in Scotland, the Royal Family had to launch Operation Unicorn. Under the plan, her body will be transferred from Balmoral Castle to her neighboring palace, Holyroodhouse, in Edinburgh, the official Scottish residence of the British monarch.

A service will be held at Westminster Hall when the coffin arrives, and the Queen will remain in state for another three days. According to the plan, the Queen’s funeral would take place at Westminster Abbey 10 days after her death.

However, on Friday morning, the royal family issued a condolence note saying it was King Charles III’s wish that a “period of royal mourning should be observed from now until seven days after the Queen’s funeral”, adding added: “The date of the funeral will be confirmed in due course.”
