Ever the royal defender, Piers Morgan has praised the Princess Royal for her “selfless devotion” to the Queen and her unswerving dedication to continuing to carry out royal duties through the grief of losing her mother.

The British broadcaster claimed Princess Anne “never gets enough credit” for her loyalty in a heart-warming tweet offering recognition to the hard-working Royal.

The 72-year-old Royal joined the travelling funeral procession, accompanying the Queen’s coffin from Balmoral to Edinburgh, to Buckingham Palace in London, before taking part in the Lying-in- State ceremony at Westminster Hall.

Royal watchers joined Morgan in praising Anne for her dedication on the long journey to return Her Majesty’s coffin to her rightful resting place.

Following Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8, the Queen’s only daughter has revealed it was “an honour and a privilege” to be able to be by her mother’s side in the final 24 hours of her life.

“I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest Mother’s life,” the Princess said.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys. Witnessing the love and respect shown by so many of these journeys has been both humbling and uplifting.

“We will all share unique memories. I offer my thanks to each and every one who shares our sense of loss. We may have been reminded how much of her presence and contribution to our national identity we took for granted.

“I am also so grateful for the support and understanding offered to my dear brother Charles as he accepts the added responsibilities of The Monarch.

“To my mother, The Queen, thank you.”

The Queen’s coffin will remain in Westminster Hall for four days before making the final journey to Westminster Abbey for her funeral on Monday, September 19.
