Sarah, 62, arrived alongside other members of the royal family. There were 2,000 people in attendance at the Queen's state funeral.

Sarah - the former wife of the Queen's son Prince Andrew, the Duke of York - shared her heartache after it was revealed Her Majesty had sadly passed away.

Celebrating her life, she marked the "extraordinary legacy" the Queen leaves behind and credited her "fantastic example of duty" in a special tribute.

She wrote on Instagram: "I am heartbroken by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. She leaves behind an extraordinary legacy: the most fantastic example of duty and service and steadfastness, and a constant steadying presence as our head of state for more than 70 years.

"She has given her whole life selflessly to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth. To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend.

"I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express."
