Mike Tindall sends one final tribute to Queen as he shares moving funeral video with fans

2519

The ex-England rugby star attended the Queen’s state funeral with his wife and granddaughter of Britain’s longest reigning monarch, Zara Tindall.

At some points during the service in Westminster, Mike looked close to tears while sitting beside his wife Zara.

He also joined his wife Zara as the pair held hands tightly for a moving procession behind Her Majesty’s coffin in the Abbey.

Prince William edging closer to ‘sidelined’ Harry could be signal of feud breakthrough

Photos of the Royal Family in Windsor show Prince Harry alone while other family members talk to one another. However a small gesture by Prince William could be a sign tensions are thawing, according to an expert.

Are the brothers ready to end their feud?

Mike appeared solemn as he stood by his wife of 11 years.

Tindall was wearing three medals, including the cross-shaped Member of the Order of the British Empire, which he received back in 2007 for his rugby career.

Pictures also showed Mike comforting James, Viscount Severn, in a touching moment at the state funeral.

Mike previously paid tribute to the Queen by posting a crying corgi – the late monarch’s favourite dog – on his Instagram account.

He posted a picture of a sketch of a crying corgi sitting next to the Imperial Crown which has a tennis ball on top.

The Queen was finally laid to rest with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at St George’s during a private evening burial service attended just by close family.

The day was filled with personal touches, with the wreath adorning her coffin featuring a handwritten note from the King, saying: “In loving and devoted memory. Charles R”.

King Charles had requested the floral tribute which replaced a wreath of Balmoral flowers with foliage and blooms cut from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove.

Earlier in the day, the state funeral at Westminster Abbey was attended by dignitaries including hundreds of heads of state, and with London full of mourners the event called for the largest policing operation undertaken by the Metropolitan Police.

Among the 2,000-strong congregation at the abbey were foreign royalty, leading figures from UK life and world leaders including US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, New Zealand Prime Minister and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

During his sermon, the Archbishop of Canterbury told the congregation the outpouring of emotion for the Queen “arises from her abundant life and loving service, now gone from us”.
