A final tribute to Queen Elizabeth II has been released by the Royal Family depicting the late monarch doing what she loved most.
The incredible image, which was taken in Balmoral in 1971, shows the Queen hiking through the heathlands in Scotland that she explored thoroughly over her many decades spent there.
The Palace also shared a quote by Shakespeare – the same one uttered by King Charles III when he first addressed the nation following his ascent to the throne.
‘May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest.’
In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen.

“May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest,” the caption read.
“In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen. 1926 – 2022.”
Queen Elizabeth II was farewelled on September 19 in front of a crowd of 2,000 people inside Westminster Abbey, while millions of fans also gathered in central London for the state funeral as billions around the world tuned in on TV.
After the service, the Queen’s coffin left the Abbey to head off to Windsor where she was privately buried at King George VI Memorial Chapel in St George’s Chapel.
