Queen Elizabeth II, Britain's longest-reigning monarch, has died aged 96.
The Queen's relationship with the Armed Forces was a centrepiece of her reign – a special relationship forged in the dark days of the Second World War, and then, as monarch, front and centre of her duties as Commander-in-Chief.
For 70 years she watched over Britain's three services and all those who served, always honoured to meet them as much as they were honoured to meet their Queen.
