The Queen made the touching gesture on the Duke's birthday

Brigadier and William meant so much to the 99-year-old that he even included them in his £30million will.

The Duke sadly passed away aged 99 in April. His funeral was held eight days later and was limited in capacity in keeping with government restrictions.

Brigadier Miller-Bakewell was chosen to flank the coffin as it made its way from the Quadrangle, down Chapel Hill and into Horseshoe Cloister at Windsor Castle.

As Philip's most senior and trusted advisor, he worked as the Duke's right-hand man for more than a decade, having taken on the role in 2010. From that point up until Philip's retirement in 2017, he was in charge of managing the Duke's diary and planning any public engagements.
