We’re still trying to wrap our head around the news of Prince Philip’s passing. And while we’d do anything to give Queen Elizabeth a (socially distant) hug, we can’t help but wonder what this means for the royal family.
That’s why we turned to Roberta Fiorito, co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, who discussed how his death will impact the queen and co. Although Prince Philip “retired” back in 2017, Fiorito confirmed that the U.K. will pause all affairs of state, so the country can mourn.
The length of the “official” mourning period varies for different people: Queen Elizabeth’s will last for eight days, while the royal household’s will stretch for 30 days. Although the nation’s will span for ten days, Fiorito predicted that Prince Philip’s life will be celebrated for much longer.
