During a reading, the Queen could be seen using a tissue to wipe her face.
One person commented online: "All the Royals are gathered to remember a man who dedicated his life to service. Seeing tears in the Queen’s eyes broke my heart."
Another posted: "The Queen was crying. My heart breaks for her."
The Queen also looked tearful as she stood and heard the attendees singing God Save the Queen at the end of the service.
Princess Beatrice was also emotional today, and could be seen breaking down and wiping tears from her face during the opening of the service.
For the service, the Queen dressed in an ensemble of green, accessorising with a ruby and diamond brooch.
This specific brooch was reportedly gifted to the Queen from Philip in 1966.
