The Duke of York issued a deeply personal statement 10 days after the death of his mother the Queen. Prince Andrew, the late monarch’s second son, addressed the Queen as “Dear Mummy, Mother, Your Majesty” in his message. 

It read: “Dear Mummy, Mother, Your Majesty, three in one.

“Your Majesty, it has been an honour and a privilege to serve you.

“Mother – of the nation, your devotion and personal service to our nation is unique and singular; your people show their love and respect in so many different ways and I know you are looking on honouring their respect.

“Mummy, your love for a son, your compassion, your care, your confidence I will treasure forever. 

“I have found your knowledge and wisdom infinite, with no boundary or containment.

“I will mill your insights, advice and humour.

“As our book of experiences closes, another opens, and I will forever hold you close to my heart with my deepest love and gratitude, and I will tread gladly into the next with you as my guide.”
