Queen shows unusual display of emotion at memorial dedication

May 19, 2016

According to The Crown Chronicles:

Her Majesty…laid a wreath at the foot of the new memorial, which is dedicated to the fallen of the regiment of The Duke of Lancaster…

As the Last Post played and the minute’s silence ensued, Her Majesty was seen to shed a tear, before wiping it away and closing her eyes for a few moments to compose herself once more.

There have been less than a handful of occasions on which The Queen has publicly cried, including Remembrance Sunday after the death of her sister and mother in 2002, and the decommissioning of Royal Yacht Britannia in 1997.
