The Royal Family have released a new picture of the Queen’s beloved pony, which made a poignant appearance at her funeral.

Emma the Fell Pony stood beside the Long Walk in Windsor Castle as the coffin carrying her devoted owner passed by for her last farewell last month.

The Palace shared a portrait of Emma and said she will continue to be loved and cared for at the Royal Mews in Windsor.

In a gap between hundreds of thousands of floral offerings, Emma’s ears twitched and she wagged her tail, stamping the ground twice with one of her front hooves as the late monarch drove past in the state hearse.

Standing next to Emma, ​​royal stud man Terry Pendry said she was “a wonderful servant of Her Majesty” and one of her all-time favorite horses.

The Queen has regularly ridden Emma for light exercise at her Windsor compound for the last 15 years.

The palace said Emma will continue to be loved and cared for at the Royal Mews in Windsor.
