The Queen has been struck with yet another tragedy following the devastating death of her husband, Prince Phillip.
Her majesty has been through a tough time these last few months and it appears her latest heartache could be the worst yet.
Ever since the tragic news of Prince Philip passing away people have been very concerned about Queen Elizabeth.
However things seem to have gotten a lot worse for the Queen.
Back in April Prince Philip passed away aged ninety nine.
On 20th November 1947, at the tender age of twenty one Elizabeth married Phillip Mountbatten.
People were naturally concerned for the Queen.
To lose a partner after that period of time is heartbreaking and now she has been hit with another blow.
The queen relied on her dogs for comfort to help with the grief of losing Phillip…
She is known for being an animal lover.
In 1944 on her eighteenth birthday the Queen was given her first corgi, Susan.
During her reign the Queen has owned more than thirty dogs.
The most famous dog is Monty, who appeared with her in a sketch for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics…
The Queen decided not to get any more dogs after Vulcan, her dorgi – a dachshund-corgi cross – passed away last year. She was left with just one dorgi called Candy.
A source said: “The Queen was left with only one dog at the end of last year. She had made the decision not to get any more because she didn’t think it fair at her age.”
“But it would be unthinkable for her not to have any. It’s like the Tower of London not having any ravens. The new puppies are adorable.”
She acquired 2 new four-legged friends when Phillip was hospitalized …
Each of their names had a very special meaning…
Fergus was called after her uncle Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who was died in action during the First World War.
The second dog, Muick, pronounced Mick, was named after Loch Muick, a favorite spot for the Royals during their summer holiday.
Penny Junior Royal biographer said: “Her corgis are hugely important to her.”
“They have over the years been closer to her than any human being. The corgis are intensely loyal and loving and they have never let her down.”
However following Philips funeral….
Fergus her 5-month-old puppy also passed away.
Everyone was concerned about her wellbeing…
Prince Andrew bought Fergus to help his mother through the grieving process.
Sources confirmed Fergus passed away in May, just a month after she lost her husband.
A source revealed: “The Queen is absolutely devastated.
“The puppies were brought in to cheer her up during a very difficult period.”
“Everyone concerned is upset as this comes so soon after she lost her husband.”
Now after all that the queen has experienced yet another heartache.
It was revealed that Prince Andrew was being sued by Virginia Roberts, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by the prince.
In the lawsuit Roberts accused Prince Andrew of battery and emotional distress.
Apparently claims were made that Roberts was forced by Jeffery Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew three times.
It was filed in New York under a child abuse law as Roberts was underage at the time.
In a statement to ABC News, Roberts said: “I am holding Prince Andrew accountable for what he did to me.
“The powerful and the rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions. I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but one can reclaim her life by speaking out and demanding justice.
“I did not come to this decision lightly. As a mother and a wife, my family comes first. I know that this action will subject me to further attacks by Prince Andrew and his surrogates.
“But I knew that if I did not pursue this action, I would be letting them and victims everywhere down.”
Prince Andrew spoke publicly with the BBC about his relationship with Epstein back in 2019.
He denied having any contact with Virginia Roberts.
Prince Andrew has always denied any wrongdoing and claimed he has never even met Roberts…
Back in 2019 he told BBC Newsnight: “It didn’t happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever.”
There’s no denying that this scandal has had, and will continue to have, a massive impact on the Queen and the royal family as a whole.
