Following the moving day, Prince William and Kate then took to Instagram to share one final tribute.
They posted a black and white photograph of the Queen’s coffin being carried into St George's Chapel, adorned with the symbolic floral wreath and shared a simple statement, which read, "Goodbye to a Queen, a mother, a grandmother and a great grandmother."
This message shared a similar sentiment to a moving comment made by Prince William to royal mourners outside of Sandringham. He revealed that the nation’s outpouring of grief for the Queen had made him realise that she was ‘everyone’s grandmother’.
