The British royal family is remembering Queen Elizabeth through a touching throwback photo of her in the countryside, shared on social media following her state funeral and burial on Monday.

The photo shows the queen walking up a lush green hill with a view of grasses, trees, and a river in the background. She carries a walking stick and wears a forest green sweater and a headscarf wrapped around her hair.

“‘May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest,'” the caption read, quoting William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. “In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen. 1926 – 2022.”
