A touching photo of Queen Elizabeth has been released to honor the late monarch following her private burial on Monday.

The Royal Family's Instagram account paid tribute to the Queen alongside a stunning photo of her walking through the countryside.

In the picture, the Queen is holding a walking stick while wearing a green coat and patterned head scarf.

She was photographed at Balmoral, her residence in Scotland, in 1971, according to Sky News. The photo was taken by Patrick Lichfield, who is the 5th Earl of Lichfield.

"'May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest.' In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen. 1926 - 2022," the caption read in reference to Shakespeare's Hamlet.

"To my darling Mama, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late Papa, I want simply to say this: thank you," he shared at the time. "Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and to the family of nations you have served so diligently all these years."
