Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, has released a touching tribute to her mother, The Queen.

Sharing her tribute via the Royal Family's social media pages, The Princess Royal released some beautiful words, alongside a photograph of herself and her mother.

In the photograph, Princess Anne can be seen with her arm around the Queen, and both are smiling.

The statement from the Princess Royal reads:

"I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest Mother’s life. It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys. Witnessing the love and respect shown by so many on these journeys has been both humbling and uplifting.

We will all share unique memories. I offer my thanks to each and every one who share our sense of loss.

We may have been reminded how much of her presence and contribution to our national identity we took for granted. I am also so grateful for the support and understanding offered to my dear brother Charles as he accepts the added responsibilities of The Monarch.

To my mother, The Queen, thank you."

Princess Anne has been at the forefront of commemorations during the period of mourning for Her Majesty, the Queen. She accompanied Her Majesty's coffin to St Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh, where a service and vigil was held. Here, Princess Anne made history by becoming the first woman in history to take part in the Vigil of the Princes.

The Princess Royal also took part in mourning arrangements in London, including accompanying The Queen's coffin on the journey from Edinburgh to London via plane.
