Emotional social media users today shared poignant tributes showing the Queen reuniting with her beloved Prince Philip and his corgis, and walking into the sunset with Paddington Bear.
A particularly touching sketch shows the Queen and Prince Philip with their arms around each other, gazing into the distance.
Her Majesty is flanked by her late husband and one of his corgis seated together on a blanket.
An inscription under the cartoon reads: “Hello again Lilibet”, alluding to the reunion after the death of the couple, married for more than 70 years.
Last night Paddington Bear paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II just months after warming the hearts of the nation with a hilarious afternoon tea skit at ‘Buckingham Palace’.
The image, shared by Instagram user ‘murphy’s sketches’, was flooded with comments below the post, including ‘it’s just beautiful’ and ‘it got me fired up again’.
Another cartoon widely shared on Twitter shows the back of the Queen, dressed in her familiar emerald green coat and hat, holding hands with Paddington Bear.
Alongside them, one of the Queen’s corgis follows again, wrapped around a loose British bunting and a train of fallen marmalade sandwiches.
The widely shared cartoon has also been edited by different users to include different inscriptions on the image.
On one it read in the Queen’s voice: ‘I’ve done my Paddington homework, please take me to see my husband’.
Another, from the bear’s perspective, said: “Have no fear ma’am…the world will hold your hand.”
The cartoon tributes follow the famous sketch the couple made to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.
In the video, the monarch and bear sat down for a cup of tea at Buckingham Palace to enjoy their favorite marmalade sandwiches, while Paddington thanked the Queen for all she had done.
Last night Paddington Bear shared his own tribute on Twitter to mark the Queen’s passing.
To echo his words in their famous skit, he said: “Thank you Madam, for everything”.
Other Paddington Bear memes have been shared on Twitter in a similar tone, with a sketch showing the bear tipping his hat in respect.
The inscription read: ‘Adieu Madame’.
