Emily revealed: "And the last act, her Lord Chamberlain, Lord Parker the former Boss of MI5 now her Lord Chamberlain.

"He broke his wand of state and that was put on top of her coffin. And it went down into the royal vault to symbolise she's…"

Her son, King Charles, stood shoulder to shoulder with his grieving relatives during the hour-long goodbye.

And the world watched as the woman, who was never meant to be sovereign but dedicated her life to her service, was given a historic send-off.

It came to a poignant finish as the her casket was lowered to lie beside her "strength and stay", the Duke of Edinburgh, who died last year aged 99.

Some 800 mourners filed into the gothic chapel – where the Queen stood little more than a year ago to bury her husband.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took their seats beside Prince William and Princess Kate, as well as their children George, nine, and seven-year-old Charlotte.

The service was conducted by the Dean of Windsor, with prayers said by the Rector of Sandringham, the Minister of Crathie Kirk and the Chaplain of Windsor Great Park.

Following the penultimate hymn, the imperial State Crown, Orb and Sceptre were moved from the Queen's coffin to the altar.

The King then draped the Queen's Company Camp Colour of the Grenadier Guards on the coffin before the Lord Chamberlain broke his Wand of Office, marking the end of his service to the sovereign.

The Dean said a psalm and the Commendation while the casket disappeared from public view for the last time.
