Yesterday saw the Queen return to work for the first time since Prince Philip's death on Friday, but her actions have people worried...

It's been a matter of days since her husband died.

And people are seriously worried by the latest update.

Now, it was announced on the morning of April 9th that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, had sadly died.


He was ninety-nine-years-old.

It was no secret that the royal had been struggling with his health for quite some time...


And had undergone many surgeries over the years.

He had previously dealt with complications such as a blocked coronary artery and a bladder infection just days before his ninety-second birthday...


Resulting in the Duke undergoing exploratory abdominal surgery, which he swiftly recovered from.

And in 2015, he retired from public engagements entirely after becoming the longest-standing royal consort in British history.

But soon after, he fell victim to another health issue which involved hip replacement surgery.

Since then, he had been on a tragically rocky path.

However, things truly took a turn for the worst for the royal this year.


On the evening of February 16th, Prince Philip was rushed to hospital after feeling "unwell."

The Sun reported that he would be spending "a few days" there.


But it was also reported that he was in "good spirits" after being taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London.

The Duke made a brief recovery...

But from there, things were quick to worsen.

His health deteriorated rapidly...

And last week, we received the news we had all been dreading.

Buckingham Palace announced on Friday, April 9th, that Prince Phillip had tragically passed away at the age of ninety-nine.

He will be greatly missed by all those who know and love the royal family.

Since the tragic news broke, tributes from fans, celebrities, and politicians alike were quick to flood in.

In their own statement, the royal family wrote:

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss. Further announcements will be made in due course."

Though, of course, all eyes have been on one member of the family in particular. 

The Queen.

Following the news of Prince Philip's death, it was confirmed that the Queen was set to enter an 8-day period of mourning.
