Queen Elizabeth II lost all of her closest confidants years before she passed away as she continued leading the Royal Family without them, according to a royal biographer.Elizabeth, who was the longest reigning British monarch, had a number of friends but none were closer than three royals in particular.According to author Matthew Dennison, she was closest to her mother, the late Queen Mother, her sister, the late Princess Margaret and husband Prince Philip.In his book The Queen, Matthew said: “In her long role as Monarch, the Queen has probably trusted fully just three people: her mother, her sister and her husband, a trio to whom she was closer than any of her children or friends."After the deaths of the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret in 2002, Philip was the sole remaining member of that group."With his loss, the Monarch is arguably more alone than at any time in her long life."The Queen Mother, aged 101, and Margaret, aged 71, both passed away in 2002.A few weeks after the death of her mother, Elizabeth paid tribute after the outpouring of support from the public.She said: "Over the years I have met many people who have had to cope with family loss, sometimes in the most tragic of circumstances."So I count myself fortunate that my mother was blessed with a long and happy life.
