Speaking with Hello! magazine Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, said that the couple have spent a great deal of time together of late which is a “silver lining” of the coronavirus.
He also said that the Duke will be supporting her “morally” in the way he always has and that he’s been a great comfort to her during the difficult time.
“He is such an important ingredient in her success and happiness. He makes her laugh, he’s got a slightly naughty sense of humour, a sense of the ridiculous that keeps her amused,” he said.
Adding: “She will value that companionship much more than if he were at the other end of a telephone.”The Duke will be a “great comfort” for the Queen during lockdown[/caption]
The “very social” Queen has been suddenly cut off from that dimension of her life with Joe adding that the Duke will be a “great comfort” for her given the circumstances.
Phil Dampier, author of Prince Philip: Wise words and Golden Gaffes, also pointed out that the Duke has “always had the ability to make [Her Majesty] laugh,” with Joe adding that the pair have “the most enormously strong partnership.”
Joe continued: “I think a lot of the strength in the relationship comes from his independent mind.
“He’s not your conventional lovey-dovey husband. He’s always been bracing and supportive to the Queen.”
