On September 19, the royal funeral for the Queen († 96) took place. Elizabeth's next of kin had to show strength, as befits royals and put on straight faces despite their grief.
The funeral service took place in Westminster Abbey. The former monarch was then buried at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle alongside her husband Philip and her family. Guests from all over the world came to pay their last respects to the Queen and say goodbye. Prince William (40) and Kate (40) also publicly said goodbye to Queen Elizabeth II.
Prince William and Duchess Kate say goodbye on Twitter
Prince William and Duchess Kate posted a black and white photo on Twitter showing the Queen's coffin and pallbearers. In the caption, the grieving couple writes: "Goodbye to a Queen, a mother, a grandmother and a great grandmother."
The sadness of the two is visible despite the short text. The fans express their condolences in the comments and are very empathetic. Now follows an official mourning period scheduled by King Charles (73) for a week. This ends on September 26th, but unofficially the family will certainly mourn for a long time.
