“It was very fast and peaceful and she was surrounded by her loved ones."

“Thank you so much to all of you who have followed Eva's journey and supported her dreams."

When Eva met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in October, she described what it meant to her on social media.

“I have had the most amazing morning!" she wrote.

“I am so honoured and thankful to have been invited to Government House to meet with Meghan and Harry this morning."
