The Queen wiped away tears and was forced to mourn alone in St George's Chapel during her husband's Windsor Castle funeral today as she said her emotional final goodbye to her 'strength and stay' after their extraordinary 73-year life together.

The Duke of Edinburgh's casket was covered in his personal standard and carried his sword, naval cap and a wreath of flowers as pallbearers lowered him on to his extraordinary self-designed Land Rover hearse in the castle packed quadrangle packed with hundreds of armed personnel.

Her Majesty looked grief-stricken and bowed her head in reverence as she accompanied her beloved Philip's coffin on its final journey as their eldest son Prince Charles cried as he walked behind the casket into church followed by other devastated royals.
