Queen ‘reunited with Philip on the other side’ in tribute from Diana’s ex-butler

Queen Elizabeth II's former footman shared a touching tribute following the monarch's death, saying she'll be "reunited with Philip".

Paul Burrell, who was the Queen's footman for 11 years and also served as Diana's butler during his time at the Palace, shared an inside look into Her Majesty's unique and loving relationship with the Duke of Edinburgh.

"The Queen wore the trousers in public and he wore the trousers behind closed doors," Burrell revealed.

"She let him be master of the household so he ran all the palaces and he ran the royal business – he was the CEO of the firm.

"She sorely, desperately missed him and he's waiting for her in St George's chapel in Windsor and she will be beside him very soon.

"She will go to the other side and meet her parents and her sister."

He touchingly added: "There are more people on the other side than there are on this."

The touching tribute is one of many that have been paid to the late monarch, who sadly died on Thursday afternoon (September 8) at Balmoral Palace.

World leaders including Joe Biden, French president Emmanuel Macron, and even Vladimir Putin, offered their condolences, while thousands of royal fans across the world have made their sorrow known.

There has been speculation that the Queen died of a broken heart after Queen Elizabeth was left widowed by Philip, who died in April 2021 after 73 years of marriage.

It was well-known that the couple had a great deal of love and affection for one another – on the night of their 50th wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen said of her husband: "He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments, but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.

"I, and his whole family and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know."

The pair shared four children together, one of them the newly-appointed King Charles III who today was welcomed as the sovereign at his accession council ceremony.

The Queen's funeral is expected to take place later this month, and the new King announced that the occasion would prompt a nationwide Bank holiday.
