Buckingham Palace staff performed one last duty for Her Majesty as they lined up to pay respects to their former employer, Queen Elizabeth.

As the stately procession went past, the staff all lined the road in a powerful and heartwarming moment following Monday's state funeral.Prince William and Prince Harry were part of the important royals walking behind their Grandmother, with some fans 'sobbing' in empathy for the siblings.

Chefs, butlers and police officers were among those who stood outside the royal residency as the coffin passed by on its way to Windsor.

Dressed in their smart uniforms, or in black attire the staff members looked solemn as Her Majesty passed them on her journey to her final resting place – St George's Chapel in Windsor, where she will be buried alongside her beloved Prince Philip later this afternoon.


Pictured outside the royal gates the staff showed their admiration for Her Majesty by clasping their hands together and standing in silence.

They joined the nation in mourning the country's longest serving monarch, as well as celebrating her incredible life. Members of the general public also lined the streets to see the final time the Queen would be in the UK's capital.

Luckily, the sun was shining down as the crowds gathered outside.

The procession began at Westminster Abbey following the end of the funeral, before it concluded at Wellington Arch. Her Majesty’s coffin was also followed by the King, Duke of York, Prince Edward and the Princess Royal.

Other members of the Royal family including the Queen Consort, the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales followed in a fleet of cars.

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was then transferred from the State Gun Carriage to the state hearse where it is currently making its final journey through Union Jack and flower lined streets out of central London to Windsor Castle.
