Mike Tindalls heartbreaking tribute to late Queen featuring her crying corgi

Mike Tindall has posted a heartbreaking tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, featuring her crying corgi.

The former rugby player, 43, who is married to The Queen's granddaughter Zara Tindall, formerly Phillips, took to social media to share the touching hand drawn sketch.

It features a corgi sitting with its head bowed next to the Imperial Crown with a tennis ball placed on top of it by the crying dog.

The simple but powerful illustration, shared on Mike's Instagram Story on Monday 12 September afternoon, is the second tribute he has posted to his wife's grandmother, who was 96.

Last week, the former international rugby player shared an image of the Sydney Opera House lit up with a black and white photo of Queen image projected on to it.

Mike captioned the moving picture with a red heart emoji.

The image was originally posted by Australian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald with the caption: "We are well-used to seeing the Sydney Opera House illuminated to mark significant events, but tonight’s image is above and beyond.

"The sails have been illuminated to pay respect to the late Queen Elizabeth II."

Zara, 41, who is the only daughter of Anne, Princess Royal, was seen wiping away tears as she looked at tributes to her late grandmother laid outside Balmoral on Saturday.

Zara could be seen kneeling down to read some of the messages accompanied by other Royal family members following a private church service at Crathie Kirk.

The Queen shared close bonds with Zara and her other beloved grandchildren.

The mum-of-three is believed to have bonded with the Queen over their shared love of horses and they would regularly attend equestrian events together.

Her husband Mike, who married Zara in 2011, has previously spoken about his admiration of the Queen, describing her as an "amazing woman".

He told The Telegraph: "I can only say how kind they've been to me, and how welcoming they've been to me since joining the family. And how they've made my family welcome.

"I've always felt part of it and I think that's down to what an amazing woman the Queen is. They're a fantastic family."

His latest Instagram post came as King Charles, 73, led the Queen's coffin procession with Anne, 72, and their other siblings Prince Andrew And Prince Edward in Edinburgh.

Her Majesty the Queen was transported from Holyroodhouse to St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, which was followed by a vigil.

This week, OK! celebrates the life of Her Majesty the Queen with a commemorative special in honour of Britain’s longest reigning monarch. Be sure to pick up your copy.
