The Queen's funeral will be attended by many of the prime ministers she worked alongside during her 70 year reign - including one said to be her least favourite.
According to one anecdote, the monarch revealed on one occasion that her least favourite prime minister was Tony Blair, although she also apparently "loathed" Boris Johnson.
The Queen worked with 15 different prime ministers during her reign, from Winston Churchill right through to Liz Truss, who she met officially just before her death on Thursday, 8 September.
Of those, six remain alive: John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson.
They all gathered at the Proclamation Ceremony for King Charles III on Saturday 10 September, alongside currently PM Liz Truss, and are likely to attend the Queen's state funeral on Monday 19 September.
In an article in the Sunday Times, the newspaper’s chief political commentator Tim Shipman revealed the Queen's thoughts on some of the leaders of the country she had dealt with.
In one anecdote, he described how a former prime minister of one of the Queen's realms had revealed that a senior French diplomat told him he had quizzed the monarch on who her favourite PM was.
According to the tale, she had replied: "That’s not the right question. What you should ask me is who has been my least favourite", then revealed the answer was Tony Blair.
Apparently following the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Queen had disliked the term 'people's princess' coined by Blair and Alastair Campbell.
But the article also suggested that Boris Johnson wasn't particularly liked by the monarch.
A source described as "close to" Buckingham Palace was quoted as saying: "At least she will be spared having to give Boris a knighthood. I think she loathes Boris because of his behaviour."
According to the report, the source of the Queen's dislike was Johnson's reference to the monarch as 'Her Maj', and the fact his own scandal meant he could not help when headlines were focused on Prince Andrew.
