King Charles leaves a touching note on Queen Elizabeth’s coffin

King Charles III, filled with grief and a newfound responsibility, fought back tears at the funeral of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II – after decorating her coffin with a touching personal note.

The new monarch wrote a short message pinned to the bouquet on the Queen’s coffin, saying: “In loving and devoted memory. Karl R.”

The R stands for “Rex” or “Regent”, the Latin word for ruler or king.

The bouquet was specially selected by Charles III and featured myrtle cut from a plant growth used in the Queen’s wedding bouquet for Prince Philip.

King Charles sat right in front of his mother’s coffin during the lavish state funeral and fought back tears as “God Save the King” played to the end.

Charles ascended the throne immediately after the death of his mother on September 8, who died at the age of 96 after more than 70 years on the throne.

However, the 73-year-old king’s coronation will not take place for several months as the nation continues its mourning of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.

Charles wasn’t the only family member to get emotional at the wedding.
