Inside the card, the Queen wrote, ‘I send you my sincere thanks for your kind words of sympathy on the death of my husband.’ It was then signed with Elizabeth R.

Several members of the firm have shared their tributes to Prince Philip. Prince William said, ‘My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family.’

Princess Eugenie also gave a tribute to her Grandfather in a lovely Instagram post saying, 'Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you.'

The Queen celebrated her 95th birthday just four days after the funeral. Though she has returned to her royal duties it is thought she will start stepping back. Prince Charles and other senior members of the family will start taking on larger roles so the Queen can slowly step away.
