As Queen Elizabeth II laid to rest in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, poignant images emerged of London streets packed with mourners. The Queen’s funeral was attended by kings and queens and world leaders, but in the midst of it all, two images were particularly heartbreaking. The Queen’s corgis and the Fell pony, Carltonlima Emma, were herded in to witness parts of the funeral procession, and their photos left tears on the internet. Emma was the Queen’s personal riding horse.
The two Pembroke Welsh corgis, Sandy and Muick, and the pony Emma waited in the Windsor Castle ring as the funeral procession arrived and were attended by two members of staff, The Guardian reported. The three pets welcomed the Queen to the castle on her last trip, according to The Royal Family Channel.
At the end of today’s funeral, these two poignant and moving images will resonate with many of us who have much-loved pets.

So many moments from today just catch you.
My favorite towards the end is Emma, one of the queens riding ponies, still going strong at the age of 24.
Look at the Queens bandana on the saddle.
And the corgis waiting for the Queen to come home with them.

This is one of the images that define me today; Emma, the queen’s fallen pony, waits for her mistress to come home. She was still riding in June. HM made history; she has become history. A very emotional day when so many people came to pay their respects to her. #The Queen pic.twitter.com/HjDKkMYwf7

In the presence of royalty, the queen was buried alongside her father, King George VI, her mother, Queen Elizabeth, and her sister, Princess Margaret, reuniting in death the family that once called themselves “us four”. The coffin of her husband, Prince Philip, who died last year at the age of 99, was also moved to rest next to her.
