On Saturday, the Monarch was photographed at Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary of an interment known as “The Unknown Warrior”, an anonymous soldier who fought in the First World War.
Remembrance events are held annually on the second Sunday in November, close to November 11, when the guns fell silent in World War I.
The floral arrangement was based on the Queen's wedding bouquet from 1947, it said, extending a tradition at the tomb started by her mother in 1923 after her own brother was killed in the war, and continued by royal brides since.
The Queen was photographed leaving a bouquet of flowers at the grave while wearing a black button-up coat and hat with a matching black mask that is believed to have been made by Angela Kelly, her personal advisor and curator.
The visit comes after the Queen was criticised for not wearing a face covering in October when she visited the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down with the Duke of Cambridge.
