The monarch even described her time in Malta visiting Philip as one of the best moments of her life as it was the only time she could live normally.

Philip had retired from public life in 2017. He left hospital last month after a month-long stay for treatment. He had recently undergone a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition.

The Queen and Prince Philip have four children, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
