The royal family were united in their grief on Monday as they came together for the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II.

The 62-year-old was seen supporting her grieving daughters and sat behind the Prince and Princess of Wales for the service, alongside her youngest Beatrice.
Despite her divorce from Andrew in 1996, Sarah has retained a strong connection to the royals. She also lives with her ex-husband at The Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park.
Sarah remained close to her mother-in-law even after her divorce
She also stayed close to her late mother-in-law and, as such, was included in Monday's events. Even after the end of her marriage, Sarah would be invited to spend time at Balmoral during the Queen's summer break.
Their bond was particularly evident in the loving tribute to the Queen that Sarah shared following her death on 8 September. It read, in part: "To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend.

"I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express."
Notably, Sarah did not attend the funeral for Prince Philip following his death in April 2021, however.
At the time, there was speculation about the strained relationship between the pair. But the reason for her absence was far more straightforward.

The guest list was strictly limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Just 30 people were in attendance – including the grieving Queen, Sarah's ex-husband Andrew and their two daughters.
It's thought that Sarah actually spent the day looking after her grandchildren, August and Sienna.
Sarah is a doting mum to Eugenie and Beatrice
Eugenie welcomed son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank in February 2021 and chose one of his middle names as a sweet tribute to her grandfather, Prince Philip. He passed away just two months later, on 9 April 2021.
Beatrice, meanwhile, delivered her first baby, Sienna, in September 2021. Her middle name is Elizabeth, in honour of her beloved grandmother.
