Queen 'touched' by support at mother's funeral says expert

The Queen's official Twitter account, Royal Family, has shared news of an engagement carried out via phone by Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester. The tweet read: "The Duke of Gloucester, Colonel-in-Chief, held a telephone meeting with Major General Alan Hawley from the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) this morning.

"The Duke received an update on the continued involvement of the Army Medical Services in the frontline Covid response."

The message was accompanied by a picture of the Duke on the phone.

The Royal Family Twitter account usually shares news and information about the Queen, the Wessexes and Princess Anne who don't have a personal social media account.

However, it sometimes features the work of other members of the Royal Family who often operate without fanfare behind the scenes.
