Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral: A poignant detail was revealed as Queen’s favorite pony Emma watched the coffin go by
In a heartbreaking scene, Emma, the Queen’s beloved pony, appeared to be saying her last goodbye – she waited with her head bowed on the Long Walk in Windsor as the monarch’s coffin was driven past.
Accompanied by Terry Pendry, the Queen’s head groom, Emma paid a special tribute to her late owner by wearing the monarch’s EIIR cipher on her strap with one of Elizabeth’s headscarves.

The Queen often wore these scarves when she went horseback riding and continued to ride well into her 90s.
Elizabeth’s devoted black fur pony Carltonlima Emma is 25 years old and has been with the Queen since the 1990s.
The scene on the Long Walk was the perfect nod to the late monarch’s lifelong love of horses.
Pendry, who has often been spotted horseback riding with the Queen and Emma, said in 2020 that the adored fur pony “was a wonderful servant of Her Majesty and is still going strong at the age of 24”.
The Queen’s two remaining corgis, Muick and Sandy, were also involved in the farewell, waiting for the funeral procession to move from Westminster Abbey to Windsor Castle in tribute to their owner.
The Queen was known to love dogs and has owned more than 30 corgis throughout her life.
As the two puppies sat patiently on the steps of Windsor Castle for their final farewell, it was a lovely personal touch after a funeral steeped in tradition and ceremony.
Sandy and Muick were sitting with two attendants when the funeral procession entered the Quadrangle, a private part of the palace.
Muick was a gift from Prince Andrew to the Queen during the COVID lockdown in 2021 and he is named after Loch Muick which is on the royal Balmoral estate.
Sandy was given to the Queen for her 95th birthday by Prince Andrew’s daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.
Both dogs are now being cared for by Prince Andrew at his home.
