The queen shared a message focusing on expressing gratitude to those who shared condolences for her loss.

The queen and duke had been married for 73 years in a famously documented marriage. The royal family converged for a private funeral in accordance with Britain’s coronavirus restrictions.

That means canceling some usual tributes that mark each of her birthdays. The last time this had happened was last year, during the rise of the coronavirus pandemic. However, TODAY further notes that another date celebrates Britain’s sovereign known as Trooping the Colour, held in June. Similarly to the gun salute, it was not held last year, but has some alternatives planned for this year.
