'Goodbye dear Grannie' Queen’s eight grandchildren  stand by her coffin in her honour

Queen's grandchildren Prince William, Prince of Wales, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie, Zara Tindall & Peter Phillips, Lady Louise Windsor & James, Viscount Severn, arrived before a vigil.

Brothers William and Harry - both dressed in uniform - stood guard at the Queen's lying in state in Westminster Hall on Saturday evening as a stream of mourners filed past after queueing for hours.

Prince Harry, who saw action on front line during 2 tours of duty in Afghanistan, has previously been denied chance to wear his military uniform as he publicly mourn because he is not a working royal.

Despite being a former Army officer, Harry has been in civilian dress for official events this week, including walking behind the Queen's coffin on Wednesday.

The brothers were joined in their silent tribute around the coffin by cousins Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Lady Louise Windsor and her brother Viscount Severn.

At 6pm, the tapping which signifies the changing of the guard sounded and William began walking down the steps, one at a time, followed by Harry, then Beatrice & Eugenie, Louise & James & Zara & Peter

Prince William was positioned at one end of the coffin, while Harry was positioned at the opposite end, facing the area of the hall where thousands of people have entered over the last few days.

Members of the public continued to file past while the Queen's grandchildren stood guard, with some women wiping tears away from their face as they left the hall.

At 6.15pm, the tapping sounded and the grandchildren ended their vigil. Prince William led the group away from the coffin, followed by Zara & Peter, Louise & James, Beatrice & Eugenie & finally Harry.
