Queen and Prince Philip made pact not to mourn deaths of each other for too long

The Queen made a promise to her late husband Prince Philip that she wouldn't mourn for too long after he died.

Her Majesty appeared in very good spirits just a few months after the Duke of Edinburgh died and according to a royal expert shows she kept to her word.
