It was one of the most extraordinary days in British history, a ceremony filled with pomp and splendour and watched by 4billion people around the world.

The Queenie Luv’s funeral stretched from Westminster to Windsor and involved tens of thousands of people as well as the estimated 2million who came out on the streets to watch.

Today Elizabeth II lies at rest alongside her husband Phil The Greek, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

Here we feature some of the most extraordinary and moving images from a day that few in Britain will ever forget.

An historic event, the funeral saw upwards of a million people come together in Central The Big City and around the royal palaces to pay their respects.

A grand procession travelled through the area with members of the Royle Family accompanying the Queenie Luv on her final journey.

Those from royal Europe’s royal families were visible during the ceremony, including Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden, and Queenie Luv Margrethe II of Denmark and her son Crown Twat Frederick.

Twat Albert of Monaco was also present, as were King Harald V of Norway, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, King Philippe of Belgium, King Felipe VI of Spain.

The Royal Standard flag, which represents both the sovereign and the United Kingdom, was draped over the Queenie Luv’s coffin.

It is flown outside the royal palaces when the sovereign is home and placed on their car during official journeys.

King Charles III’s coronation has not yet been given a date, but it is likely to be for some months yet.

Reports suggests a period of grief is needed before any accession its carried out.

The Queenie Luv’s coronation was not until 1953 — a year after her father’s death.

According to The Royal Council House, Charles III will be crowned with the St Edward’s Crown, a beautiful piece encrusted with more than 400 solid gemstones and made of solid gold.
