“My wife has had her guidance and support for 20 years. My three children have to spend vacations with her and create memories that will last a lifetime.
She was by my side in my happiest moments. And she was by my side through the saddest days of my life. I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without grandma will feel real.
“I thank her for the kindness she has shown my family and me. And I thank her on behalf of my generation for setting an example of service and dignity in public life that was of a different age, but always relevant to all of us.
“My grandmother once said sadness was the price we pay for love. All the sadness we will feel in the coming weeks will be a testament to the love we felt for our extraordinary queen.
“I will honor her memory by supporting my father, The King, in every way I can.”
