Prince Andrew said his 94-year-old mother was "incredibly stoic" but had been hit hard by the death of the Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99 on Friday. Last year the couple celebrated 73 years of marriage. "She described it (his death) as having left a huge void in her life," Andrew told broadcasters after a church service at Windsor Castle, west of London.He described his father as "the grandfather of the nation" and said close family were "rallying round" the queen in support.
The grandson and grandfather were rushed to the hospital, according to WSOC. Officials had reportedly tried to airlift Gibson due to the severity of his injuries but decided to take him by ambulance.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and that officials are looking into why Gibson needed the money. Some neighbors told WSOC that Gibson had told them he was struggling to pay his rent.
