September 19 was a very sad day for the United Kingdom, especially for the royals who were captured with tears and sad faces as in the case of James, Viscount Severn who had to be cheered up by Mike Tindall.
The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II left emotional images. All members of the British royal family attended the events held at Westminster and Windsor Castle, to say their last farewell to Her Majesty, who was buried in the royal vault of St. George’s Chapel in a private ceremony.

James, Viscount Severn, the late Queen’s youngest grandson was comforted by Mike Tindall, the husband of Zara Tindall, Princess Anne’s daughter.
The former England rugby player put a comforting arm around his cousin-in-law outside Westminster Abbey, moments after the coffin carrying the monarch’s remains left for its final journey to Windsor.
James, the youngest son of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex and last Saturday, Sept. 17, who is the late Queen’s youngest grandson, looked calm and collected during the 15-minute vigil at Westminster Hall, stood beside Elizabeth’s coffin and bowed his head as a sign of respect.
