The Queen will lie in state in Westminster Hall for five days, where hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flow through and pay their respects leading up to the state funeral on Monday.

While Queen Elizabeth rarely spoke publicly about private moments with her family, she did share several sweet moments with her grandchildren at public events, including official royal outings and royal weddings.
