Those words make his pain ours. With an emotional letter, Prince William says goodbye to his grandmother - Queen Elizabeth: 'It will take some time before I know what reality really feels like without my grandmother,' writes the Prince of Wales and heir to the throne in a statement.
The world has lost an 'extraordinary leader,' he continues. “But I also lost my grandmother. And while I mourn her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful,' the 40-year-old wrote. He had the great privilege of being able to benefit from the wisdom of the kings until he was in his fifth decade. His children also enjoyed the love of their great-grandmother: 'They spent the holidays with her and made memories that they will keep for the rest of their lives.'
William, who lost his mother Diana at the age of 10, thanks his grandmother for being there: 'She was there at the happiest moments of my life. And she was by my side on the saddest days.”
The Queen was not only an example for the people of her generation: 'I thank her on behalf of my entire generation for being an example of dignity and devotion in public life, which came from another time but is always important to us was.'
The grief that the family and the country have now seized is 'a sign of the love we felt for our extraordinary Queen.' He will now support his father in every possible way to preserve the memory of his grandmother . (eon)
