Millions of people around the world have watched Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral live on television, including many famous faces who took to social media to pay tribute to the late monarch on this momentous day.

Sophie Hinchliffe, also known as Mrs Hinch, took a break from her family holiday in Malta to repost the newly released photo of the Queen.

She added the words 'Thank you Ma'am' and a passage to remind her followers about the moment of silence that took place earlier in the day.

Ferne McCann showed her daughter Sunday with three other children closely watching the "beautiful service", and prepared some sandwiches and scones for the day that is also about celebrating the Queen's incredible life.

Her fellow former The Only Way is Essex star, Billie Shepherd also shared an image of the queen and wrote: "Rest in peace our wonderful Queen."

Fearne Cotton has had the honour of meeting Her Majesty twice during in her lifetime.

She shared photos from the occasions and wrote: "Two photos I'll always treasure. In photo number one I'm pregnant with Honey, so she kind of met Her Majesty the late Queen Elizabeth too (which Hon is very happy about)…

"Its hard not to get a little self indulgent in these posts but both occasions meeting the Queen were surreal and impactful and ones I won't forget. Rest In peace."

Chris Hughes who has a passion for the Queen's much-loved sport horse racing, wrote: "Your sense of humour, personality, kindness, commitment and endured passion of horse racing will forever live on.

"Rest peacefully and thank you for everything Ma’am."

His fellow Love Island alumni Molly-Mae Hague is currently holidaying in Switzerland but ensured she took time out of the trip to watch the funeral.

Dan Walker shared a poignant message on Twitter encouraging us all to check in on loved ones.

"I spoke to a woman on my way into work today still grieving the loss of someone in her own family," he said. "Today has brought it all back.

"Funerals are hard. We can all look out for the lonely #funeral #queensfuneral."

He later added: "It’s a good thing to commit to ringing 2 or 3 people who might be on their own today. That’s what I’ll be doing. It doesn’t take much to make a difference."
