Queen Elizabeth II went "weeks" without seeing Prince Philip: book
According to "Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait," Queen Elizabeth II would go "weeks" without seeing Prince Philip.
However, novelist Gyles Brandreth claims that the married couple spoke "frequently" on the phone.
Her Majesty knew that Philip did not want “to be fussed over” and wanted to “see out his days in his own way,” according to the book.
The Queen's longtime spouse died in April 2021, five years after his retirement.
In 2020's pandemic lockdown, Queen Elizabeth II and Philip had grown closer, and Brandreth's book claims she wanted to be by his side when he died.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the 73-year-old couple spent more time in Scotland and Windsor Castle.
