Princess Beatrice and Eugenie paid tribute to grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II at funeral. In a statement released on September 17, 2002 ahead of Queen’s funeral, both the loving granddaughters expressed their grief. They addressed her as Dearest Grannie on their social media accounts.

Both of them became mothers last year and wanted their children to look after her. After the vigil, the sisters became emotional and shared their thoughts in a joint post.
“You were our matriarch, our guide, our loving hand on our backs leading us through this world. You taught us so much and we will cherish those lessons and memories forever.”
‘Goodbye dear Grannie, we are very proud of you.’
