Mike Tindall paid tribute to the Queen

Mike Tindall paid a heartbreaking tribute to the Queen on Instagram.

Former rugby star Tyndall, husband of Queen Zara’s granddaughter Tyndall, posted a touching cartoon to his Instagram story.

It features a Corgi – the Queen’s favorite dog breed – crying over a crown.

The tennis ball rests on top of the crown.

Tyndall is the latest royal to pay her respects to Her Majesty, passing away on Thursday at the age of 96.

On Monday, Prince Harry spoke of the Queen’s “unwavering grace and dignity” and her “infectious smile”.

“As we celebrate the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, and mourn her loss, we all remember that she was a guiding compass for many in her commitment to service and duty. She was admired and respected all over the world. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life, and now her enduring legacy.

“Let’s repeat the words she spoke after the death of her husband, Prince Philip, words that can console us all now: “Life, of course, consists of the last partings, as well as the first meetings.”

“Grandma, although this final parting brings us great sadness, I am infinitely grateful for all our first meetings – from my earliest childhood memories with you, to the first meeting with you as my commander in chief, to the first moment you met my beloved wife and hugged their beloved great-grandchildren.

“I cherish these moments with you and the many other special moments in between. You are already greatly missed not only by us, but by the whole world. And as for the first meetings, we are now honoring my father in his new role as King Charles III.

“Thank you for your commitment to service. Thanks for your good advice. Thank you for your infectious smile. We smile too, knowing that you and Grandpa are now reunited, both together in peace.”

Prince William, the new Prince of Wales, said his grandmother was “by my side in my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life.”

“On Thursday, the world lost an outstanding leader whose dedication to the country, the kingdoms and the Commonwealth was absolute,” the statement said.

“So much will be said in the coming days about the significance of her historic reign. I, however, lost my grandmother.

“She was by my side in my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life. I knew that day would come, but it would take some time before the reality of life without a grandmother would become truly real.

“My three children should spend the holidays with her and create memories that will stay with them for a lifetime.

“My grandmother used to say that grief is the price we pay for love. All the sadness we will feel in the coming weeks will be a testament to the love we felt for our extraordinary queen.”

King Charles paid tribute to his “dear mother” in his address to the nation on Friday.

“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” he said.

“We deeply mourn the death of our beloved Sovereign and beloved Mother. I know that her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

“In this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and supported by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection that the Queen enjoyed so widely.”
