Robert Jobson told Sunrise that Queen Elizabeth II is “getting on with it” after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral last weekend. The Queen’s 95th birthday celebrations have been muted as the Royal Family is still mourning Prince Philip’s death.
Mr Jobson said: “I have spoken to some people pretty close to her and she is holding up pretty well actually and getting on with it.
“Obviously, there are not going to be any released photographs from Buckingham Palace or any official statements.
“The reality is, she will perhaps have some conversations with her family and Charles and Anne.
“Maybe, just maybe one of the family that is closest may go and see her.
“But they have to stand their distance as we are still under the restrictions, that is just the way it is.
“She has got a bubble of people around her but you have to feel for her.”
During the Royal Rota, ITV’s Royal Editor Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson discussed the Royal Family’s period of mourning which traditionally lasts for two weeks.
Mr Ship said: “Royal mourning goes on [until] is it Thursday or Friday?”
Ms Robinson replied: “Royal mourning is two weeks, so a little bit longer than national mourning.

“Members of the Royal Family will only do things if considered appropriate so I actually expect this week for us to see or hear very little from the Royal Family.”
She added: “Even though it is the Queen’s 95th birthday on April 21.”
The Queen’s 95th birthday will be the first time the British Monarch will not receive a card or greeting from Prince Philip in over 70 years as she continues to grieve the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The royal biographer claimed the image of the Queen sitting alone during Prince Philip’s funeral was the most talked-about photo from the service.
Mr Scobie said: “We have spent the week talking about how family members have and still are rallying around the Queen during her very difficult time of grief.
“We talk about the loneliness she faces now, she turns 95 in just days, it will be the first time she does not receive that card or that greeting from her husband.
“The image that we saw in the service, I think really was the image that most people talk away from that service.”
