Royal fans have been flocking to tattoo parlours to pay tribute to the Queen following her death. 

One tattoo shop in Windsor said that they have had numerous requests from Coldstream Guards, who have a strong presence in the region, to ‘immortalise Her Majesty for their memory’. 

They posted an image online of a tattoo which shows the Queen saluting while dressed in her military uniform, adorned with a medal on her chest. It depicts the late monarch using only black ink, except for the flash of crimson of the feather on her hat.
