Queen Elizabeth II: MPs share funny and moving memories of Queen

Politicians from both Houses of Parliament have gathered to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II and share their memories of the late monarch.

Prime Minister Liz Truss described the Queen as one of the world's greatest-ever leaders, as she opened two days of special tributes in Parliament.

MPs and ex-PMs paid their respects in personal speeches that aroused both tears and laughter in emotional scenes.

A minute's silence was held to remember the Queen after 70 years on the throne.

Both Houses of Parliament are sitting on Friday and Saturday to allow politicians to pay tribute to the Queen, following her death on Thursday.

Friday's proceedings in Parliament paused at 18:00 BST for MPs and peers to watch the new king, Charles III, deliver a televised address to the nation, his first as monarch.

Earlier, King Charles III was greeted by crowds singing "God save the king" outside Buckingham Palace, where he held his first in-person audience with Ms Truss.

On Saturday, Ms Truss and senior ministers will attend the Accession Council at St James's Palace, where Charles will be formally proclaimed king.

In Parliament on Friday, MPs and peers from all sides, dressed in dark clothing, paid tribute to the Queen by sharing memories of their own encounters with her.

There have been many anecdotes about the Queen's wisdom, sense of humour and ability to put people at their ease.

Some MPs laughed uproariously as former Prime Minister Theresa May recalled how mortified she was when the Queen caught her returning a dropped piece of cheese to a plate, as she helped prepare a picnic at Balmoral.

"I looked at her. She looked at me. And she just smiled. And the cheese remained on the table."

But the session began in solemn fashion, as Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle invited a packed Commons chamber to rise and observe a minute's silence.
