On the day, Sandra looked elegant in a black dress and a matching hat, while wearing a red and white brooch in her latest Instagram post. 

The Golden Globe winner donned a pair of slip-on shoes and carried a stylish handbag as she made the solemn walk into London’s Westminster Abbey.

She joined Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau as a member of the Order of Canada at today’s ceremonies. 

The A-list star wasn’t the only celebrity at Her Majesty’s funeral with adventurer Bear Grylls, 48, also in attendance, as well as Peep Show actor Sophie Winkleman, 42.

Bear was present at today’s monumental events as representative of the Scouts after being appointed as chief scout in 2009. 

The Queen, who was patron of the Scout Association, also made him OBE in 2019. 

Peep Show star Sophie is married to Lord Frederick Windsor, the son of the Queen’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent, and appeared alongside him at the ceremony.

Her majesty has finally been laid to rest to be with her beloved Prince Phillip after her crown, orb and sceptre were removed from her coffin so she could descend into her grave ‘as a simple Christian soul’.

The Queen has returned home to Windsor to be reunited for eternity with her husband, father, mother and sister in the royal crypt at St George’s Chapel as her 70-year reign came to an end this evening. 

Britain’s longest reigning monarch had been carried into the historic church followed by Charles III, her children and grandchildren including Prince Harry and Prince William 

Last week, Sandra attended the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles after being nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama series.

She lost out in the category to Euphoria star Zendaya, who won the award for a second time, becoming the youngest two-time lead actress Emmy winner at 26-years-old.

In 2020, Zendaya made history when she scooped the same award at just 24, making her the youngest woman ever to bag the prize. 

For her performance as Eve, Sandra became the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
