Palace releases unseen photo of smiling Queen ahead of state funeral


Beaming for the camera, a cheerful Queen Elizabeth II smiles in a photo recently released by Buckingham Palace on the eve of her state funeral.

The photograph was taken in May at Windsor Castle ahead of Platinum Jubilee celebrations marking the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

Ahead of Monday’s funeral, King Charles III thanked members of the public for their support and messages of condolence since his mother’s death.

The new monarch said he and his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, were ‘moved beyond measure’ by the public outpouring of love and affection witnessed during the couple’s tour of the nations that make up the UK last week.

Meanwhile, the Queen Consort paid tribute to the late monarch in a televised message on Sunday, saying she will always remember the Queen’s “unforgettable” smile.

In a three-minute video, interlaced with archival footage of Elizabeth II, Camilla praised the Queen for ‘carving out her own role’ as a ‘lonely woman’ in a world of international politics dominated by international politics. men.

“She has always been a part of our lives. I’m 75 now and I don’t remember anyone other than the Queen being there,’ the Queen Consort said.

She recalled the Queen’s “wonderful blue eyes” and said, “I will always remember her smile.”
