“I feel very sorry and supportive of my mother who’s feeling it I think probably more than everybody else,” he said.
“She described it as having left a huge void in her life.”
In a possible dig at Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, Andrew added, “We, the family — the ones that are close — are rallying around to make sure that we are there to support her.”
Andrew’s younger brother, Prince Edward, said the family was “still trying to come to terms” with the ” very, very sad” loss.
“It’s been a bit of a shock. However much one tries to prepare oneself for something like this it’s still a dreadful shock,” he said of his father, who spent a month in hospital during which he had heart surgery this year.
Edward said the huge show of public mourning and support showed that Philip “might have been our father, grandfather, father-in-law, but he meant so much to so many other people.”
