Mike Tindall has paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II by sharing a sketch of a corgi crying.

Mr Tindall married into the Royal Family in June 2011 after meeting Queen Elizabeth II’s oldest granddaughter Zara Tindall in 2003.

Mr Tindall posted the poignant corgi sketch by artist “Danielle D” on Instagram.

It comes after Mr Tindall paid another tribute to the former monarch of photo of the Sydney Opera House lit up with Queen Elizabeth II's portrait on Friday.

Alongside the post on Instagram, Mr Tindall also added a single heart emoji.

The former rugby player had previously hailed Queen Elizabeth II as an “amazing woman”.

Speaking last year, Mr Tindall said: "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,” he told The Telegraph.

On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin will travel from Edinburgh to London, before heading to Buckingham Palace.

Thousands of mourners have queued overnight to see the coffin in St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh before it leaves Scotland at around 6pm on Tuesday.
