The late monarch was reunited with her beloved Prince Philip at a solemn service in Windsor, following their touching funeral at Westminster Abbey today.

Thousands of mourners lined the streets and the Long Walk to bid farewell to Her Majesty while tearful members of the Royal Family trailed behind.

Waiting for the procession within the gates was Emma – who lifted her leg as if to attempt a curtsy as the Queen’s entourage passed.

The Queen’s beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy, also stood patiently waiting – leaving the emotional Brits reaching for tissues.

The late monarch was never happier than at the racetrack during her 70-year reign.

Frankie Dettori and Matt Chapman paid tribute to her deep love of horses – and their joy was visible to all when she won the Ascot Gold Cup with Estimate in 2013.

In addition to going to the races, the queen also enjoyed riding her own horses.

She managed to get back in the saddle and make gentle excursions in Windsor in June of that year – nine months after she was told to quit.

The Queen was known as a keen horse rider since she got her first pony in 1929 at the age of three.

Today the late monarch was reunited with her beloved Prince Philip after an emotional journey from London to Windsor Castle.

Her Majesty’s coffin was lowered into the 16-foot Royal Vault beneath St George’s Chapel.

Her son, King Charles, stood shoulder to shoulder with his grieving relatives after the poignant 25-mile journey.


It comes as…


The procession made its way to Windsor after tearful King Charles led his family in an outburst of grief as the world bid farewell to Her Majesty at her funeral.

Charles, 73, was visibly emotional as billions watched the Queen’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey this morning.

Charles was walking in a solemn procession as his mother’s coffin, draped in the ensign of the royal standard and crowned with her crown, orb and sceptre, was carried into the abbey.

And as thousands lined the streets outside, the grieving king was visibly moved, wiping away tears in moments during the historic event.
