The message said: “In loving and devoted memory.”

Mourners stuffed the streets of the capital to cheer, applaud and throw flowers in the path of her state hearse following the funeral attended by world leaders, overseas royalty and main figures from the combat against Covid-19 amongst greater than 2,000 company.

Tens of hundreds watched the ceremonial procession from the Abbey to Wellington Arch – a uncommon spectacle of hundreds of sailors, troopers and airmen accompanying the former head of the Armed Forces or lining the route.

For the coffin’s journey to the outskirts of Windsor – a city the Queen knew effectively – the public’s appreciation of the late monarch mirrored the scenes in the capital.
