But on her way up the stairs to leave Westminster Hall, Zara was seen to stop briefly and look down at the ground.

Her brother Peter Phillips was at her side, pausing briefly so she could gather herself and continue.

Zara didn’t let the moment overwhelm her and continued.

Although it’s impossible to see what the problem is on the ground, some royal fans have speculated that Zara lost her shoe.

One tweeted: ‘To me it looked a bit like Zara lost a shoe on the stairs back from the shift.’

All eight grandchildren came together on Wednesday as Her Majesty’s coffin was brought to Westminster Hall to lie in state. The emotion of the moment was clear to see with Eugenie, Beatrice and Zara all holding back tears.

Meanwhile, Lady Louise, who shared a love of horses with her late grandmother, moved viewers to tears as she walked to the Queen’s coffin.

Today, all eight grandchildren remained calm as they attended the very public ceremony. It takes place ahead of the Queen’s funeral on Monday.

Brothers William and Harry – both dressed in uniform – stood vigil at the Queen’s lie-in-state in Westminster Hall on Saturday night as a stream of mourners passed by after queuing for hours.

Prince Harry, who saw action on the front line during two tours of duty in Afghanistan, has previously been denied the opportunity to wear his military uniform while grieving in public because he is no longer a working royal.

But royal sources said the king decided his youngest son could wear a guard uniform.

The brothers were joined by their cousins ​​in their silent tribute around the casket.
