The Royal Family looked emotional as they attended the Queen’s state funeral on Monday alongside thousands who turned out on the streets of London to bid a final farewell to Her Majesty.

However several photos of the royals including King Charles III showed their emotion on the day.

Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex were both seen wiping away tears during the ceremony at Westminster Abbey while Princess Charlotte was seen crying alongside her mother, the Princess of Wales.

Prince Andrew also wept as he walked behind his mother’s coffin on its way to Westminster Abbey

Queen’s name inscribed on to chapel stone alongside Philip

The Queen’s name has been inscribed on the ledger stone in Windsor Chapel where she is buried.

The late Monarch was buried alongside her husband of 73 years, Prince Philip, her mother, father, and sister in the Geroge VI Memorial Chapel.

The fresh stone now contains, in list form, “George VI 1895-1952” and “Elizabeth 1900-2002” followed by a metal Garter Star, and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022” and “Philip 1921-2021”.

Dr Shola sparks fury with anti-royal rant

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has sparked fury after she posted an anti-royal rant on Twitter.

Contrasting the funeral to that of “genuinely grieved” Princess Diana, she claimed that “millions” of people in the UK “couldn’t wait for the Queen’s funeral to be over”.

Responding to the announcement, Dr Mos-Shogbamimu wrote on Twitter: “250k? More people mourned/grieved/visited Princess Diana passing than Queen Elizabeth…

“At least 3 million people in London alone not to talk of the rest of UK & globally genuinely grieved Diana

“Millions here couldn’t wait for Queen’s funeral to be over.”

She added: “Not symbol of unification”

Do Archie and Lillibet now have titles?

The Sussexes’s children, Archie and Lili, are now, as the grandchildren of a monarch, a prince and a princess.

But it is not known whether they will use the titles, which they were not entitled to when they were born.

The rules set out by King George V in 1917 mean Archie and Lili – as the children of a son of a sovereign – also now have an HRH style if they choose to use it.

King Charles III planning ‘slimmed down coronation’ on poignant date

King Charles is reportedly planning a slimeed down coronation, with a royal biographer claiming the coronation could take place on a poignant date next year.

While a date has not yet been announced for the ceremony, royal biographer Hugo Vickers said it could occur on June 2, the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.

Like Queen Elizabeth, the King will be crowned with the St Edward’s Crown, which is made of solid gold and has more than 400 gemstones, including rubies, garnets, sapphires.

Speaking to ITV, Mr Vickers said he expects an announcement of the coronation date to take place “quite soon”.

Queen’s beloved pony catches public attention for ‘curtsy’

The Queen’s beloved pony, Emma, stepped out to greet her owner for one last time in Windsor yesterday, with members of the public believing the animal “curtsied” as the cortege drove past.

Fell pony Emma had one of Her Late Majesty’s silk headscarves draped over her saddle she waited at Windsor for the monarch’s final journey. The black horse was seen standing with floral tributes as Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin arrived at the Long Walk.

And as the Queen’s coffin was driven past the horse, eagle-eyed viewers saw the horse appear to move her feet in a “curtsy” to the Queen, with one writing: “Did the Queen’s pony Emma just curtsy as the Queen passed by?!”

When did Meghan and Harry quit as senior Royals?

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior royals in March 2020- a move dubbed ‘Megxit’.

Following the move, they were stripped of their royal patronages and honorary military titles.

The couple relocated across the pond to Montecito in Santa Barbara where they now live with their two children Archie, three and Lilibet, who turns one next month.

Since leaving the UK the couple has not stepped away from the spotlight, most famously taking part in a controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.
