“She described it as having left a huge void in her life, but we, the family, the ones that are closer, are rallying around to make sure that we are there to support her. I know that there is a huge amount of support, not just for her, but for everybody, as we go through this enormous change.” Prince Andrew was among royals in attendance at the Sunday Service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor, England.
