Location, Location, Location presenter Kirstie Allsopp, 49, has candidly revealed she felt “a little ashamed to admit that I cried” after hearing news of Prince Philip dying at the age of 99 today. Kirstie took to Twitter to share her emotional response to the Duke of Edinburgh’s death while admitting she has “always disapproved of mourning people you do not know”.

Detailing her mixed feelings on the late royal’s death, Kirstie penned: “A little ashamed to admit that I cried. 

“I’ve always disapproved of mourning people you do not know, what a hypocrite.”

The star went on to say part of her sadness was for the duke’s widow, the Queen, who has been married to him for 73 years.

She also explained her focus on families being separated due to coronavirus restrictions has been upsetting her too.

Kirstie added: “It’s partly sadness for the Queen, and the fact that I’ve been focusing on separated families in the last few days, there’s so much unhappiness at the moment.”

Fans took to the comments section of the host’s post to share their thoughts.

One person wrote: “We mourn then end of an era that was hardier, more self reliant and honourable than the one the woke generation are taking us into. Phil was a symbol, a man of honour whom we respected. Tears are appropriate, he was so much a part of our lives.”

Another added: “I did as well Kirstie. He’s been there all our lives. It feels like we’re coming to the end of an era. I’m worried for the queen. Maybe it is these sad times.”

 

A third fan penned: “Same here. My tears were for the Queen.”

A fourth person said: “I think a lot of us have that thing of us as Brits, we love our Queen, but she also attained some kind of ‘national grandma’ status in our minds. To imagine a beloved grandma upset or in pain is, of course, upsetting. Not ashamed to admit I had a little tear.”

A fifth wrote: “There’s nothing to be ashamed of, it’s a very sad day. Imagine losing your other half after 73 incredible years of marriage.”

A sixth questioned: “Why the shame? I also cried..for a life lost, for someone who was adored and cherished by his family..its a human reaction! I feel so sad for her majesty and her family X.”

Earlier today, Kirstie had questioned Covid restrictions in a post about Prince Philip’s death.

She wrote: “As Legoland opens on Monday, I presume no mealy-mouthed politician is going to prevent anyone queuing in order to pay their respects to HRH Prince Philip?”

Kirstie went on to fume: “The stories I have been sent in the last few days about people being prevented from seeing their families while in hospital have destroyed any respect I may have had for this Government. 

“There is no event they will not politicise or use to further their ends.”

It comes after most hospitals have stopped or significantly limited visits to help precent the spread of coronavirus.

The Duke, born Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, had been residing at Windsor Castle, Berkshire, with Her Majesty The Queen at the time of his death.

He was last seen in public just weeks before his death while being discharged from King Edward VII’s Hospital in London after undergoing a successful heart procedure.

Prince Philip is survived by his wife, Queen Elizabeth, as well as children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

He leaves behind grandchildren, Princes William and Harry, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

The Duke is also survived by great-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Archie Harrison, Isla and Savannah Phillips, Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall.
