The Queen has suffered yet another terrible loss as her close friend, Sir Timothy Colman, passed away aged ninety-one.
One of the Queen's closest friends, Sir Timothy Colman, passed away last week.
It comes just months after the Queen also lost her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Colman, a former Royal Navy officer, was a frequent guest at the Queen's Sandringham estate after having known her for many years.
Often, he was joined by his wife Lady Mary Colman, who was the Queen's cousin, before she also passed in January aged eighty-eight.
The businessman and Knight of the Garter passed away on September 9th, at his home in Bixley Manor, near Norwich, UK while surrounded by family, OK reports.
He is survived by his 5 children, 10 grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren.
Colman's family described him as "a huge influence on a number of people," the Eastern Daily Press reports.
