People are sharing their favourite clips of the Queen’s most heartwarming moments

Remembered for her sense of humour and mischievous smile, these are some of Brits’ most cherished moments of the Queen enjoying herself

As head of state, the Queen embodied tradition, dignity and composure, but the moments of her taking delight in the smaller things will be some of those most cherished.

As Labour leader Keir Starmer said in his tribute in the Commons: “She did not simply reign over us, she lived alongside us.”

Her love for animals – her corgis, horses and cattle – was widely known, as well as her gentle humour.

These are some of the most magical, heart-warming and special moments of the Queen being shared to remember her.
