Queen fights back tears as she watches granddaughter's touching tribute to Prince Philip at Platinum Jubilee

THE Queen appeared to fight back tears as she watched her granddaughter's touching tribute to Prince Philip at the Platinum Jubilee.

The monarch was treated to a spectacular night of performances on Sunday to mark her historic Platinum Jubilee.

While the 96-year-old smiled and enjoyed much of the show, she had a noticeable sombre moment when her 18-year-old granddaughter Lady Louise drove Philip’s carriage around the arena.

Lady Louise, who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, took part in the grand finale of the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The Queen's eyes glistened with tears as she watched the procession, which had become a favourite pastime of her late husband, who died last year at the age of 99.

Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, represented Britain at several world and European carriage driving championships during his lifetime after he stopped playing polo.

"Every film I make is important, but this one, people have been asking for decades," the Hollywood star explained.

"For decades I’ve been thinking 'what could I do?'"

However, viewers were not impressed that Tom was using the moment to promote the sequel to the 1986 original.
