It seems that Queen Elizabeth II is changing up a longstanding tradition.
Following the death of Prince Philip on April 9, the queen has been in a formal mourning period that will last for thirty days. For the first week, Queen Elizabeth halted all of her official duties, and for the remainder of the time, she will be conducting all of her matters privately.
The royal family honored the late duke last Saturday during a small ceremonial service at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Now, the queen will continue her mourning, but with a notable change in tradition along the way. According to a report by People, Her Royal Majesty will be the first to not use black-edged stationery during her official mourning period.
