The Withnail and I actor, 64, had confirmed that Joan Washington died last week, aged 71, sharing a video of the couple dancing together.

He today posted a picture of his late wife captioned: “35 years ago we pledged ‘In Sickness and in Health’

“That Time has come for us today, as @OliviaGranted & I and our friends gather for the funeral of my beloved wife, Joan.

“The depth of our sorrow mirrored by the magnitude of our love.”

The actor’s post received dozens of messages of support on social media.

One said: “I’m so sorry, Richard. May she rest in peace, and may your memories with her bring you some light in these dark days.”

Another replied: “One commented: ‘Such a hard but important day. You never really say goodbye, find the strength.”

A third posted: “‘I’m so moved by the out pouring of love for you and your beloved Joan. I can see the love in all your photos, thank you for sharing your love and loss with us all.”

The actor paid tribute to his wife last week as he announced the sad news of her death.

“ONLY YOU! Joan – Love of my Life & Giver of Life to our daughter Olivia. Our hearts are broken with the loss of your Life last night. 35 years married & 38 together”, he wrote.
