An eight-year-old child left a heartfelt message for Her Majesty at Green Park following her death last week.
Written and signed by Georgie May, the letter asks the Queen to look out for the young writer’s grandma, who died ‘a few months ago’.
Dede, Georgie’s great-grandma, followed the life of the monarch, whose reign lasted seven decades.
The little girl included a picture of her beloved great-grandma holding a picture of the Queen with a note that said they are now ‘reunited together’.
The letter begins: “Dear Queen Elizabeth, a few days ago my mum told me that you were very ill and a few hours later she came to me with the sad news that you had passed away.
“I am thankful for everything you’ve done as a strong leader.
“I hope you will be reunited with Prince Philip and if you see a lady with short curly hair, her name is Dede then that is my great grandma.
“Thank you for everything you have done. I love you.”
The note on the picture of Dede read: “Laid down in memory of my gran who followed the life of her Queen until she sadly passed away a few months ago but is now reunited together.”
A member of the public who travelled to Green Park with other mourners to pay their respects shared the note on Instagram, along with the caption: “Well, this tribute in #Greenpark finished me off…! #queenelizabeth #kingcharles3."
The tributes left for Her Majesty have included a sea of flowers, cards, drawings, soft toys, Union Jack flags and even marmalade sandwiches, following her highly adored acting debut with Paddington Bear.
Senior members of the royal family walked through the streets of London from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall On Wednesday 14 September.
The procession walked along The Mall, Horse Guards Road, across Horse Guards Parade and onto Whitehall to Parliament Square and into the Palace of Westminster.
The Queen will Lie-in-State at the Palace of Westminster until Monday 19 September, when her funeral will take place.
Members of the public will be able to visit the Queen's coffin to pay their respects during this period and Westminster Hall will be open for 24 hours a day.
For those who are unable to make it, the BBC is launching a dedicated stream of the Queen lying in state.
It will launch today at 5pm and will be available on the BBC home page, the BBC News website and app, BBC iPlayer, BBC Parliament and via the Red Button.
