Queen Elizabeth II couldn't say a final goodbye to her beloved husband, Prince Philip, as he died before calling up the Queen, a new book claimed on Saturday.
The Duke of Edinburgh died during the pandemic in 2021, at Windsor Castle where he spent the pandemic period with the Queen.
He was 99 at the time of his death, about a few months away from his 100th birthday.
The new book entitled"Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait" by Gyles Brandreth said that the late Duke of Edinburgh was in a hospital bed in his dressing room at Windsor.
He went to the bathroom after he was helped by a nurse.
“When he came back, he said he felt a little faint and wanted help getting back into bed. The nurse called the Duke's valet and the Queen's page, Paul Whybrew, for help - and he died before the Queen could be called," the book revealed
Brandreth added that the Queen was not called until after Prince Philip was pronounced dead by a doctor.
After Prince Philip’s funeral, the Queen left for her home at the castle.
Brandreth expressed: "As they tried to comfort the Queen, the Queen was comforting them."
The book is expected to be published on November 29th.
