Speaking about the sudden media attention on herself and her husband after the death of Prince Philip, she added: “We’ve plodded along doing what we’re doing, hopefully doing it well.
“And then all of a sudden there’s a bit of a hiatus and things have changed a bit.
“Naturally, the media are looking for people to fill the so-called void.
“If people want to pay more attention to what we’re doing, then great.”
