During the ceremony, King Charles laid the Queen's Company Camp Colour of the Grenadier Guards on her coffin. As cameras showed the emotional moment, wreathes that had been left on the coffin by the family were seen, many of which featured the final handwritten words that would be shared with Her Majesty.
