Bear Grylls was the most famous person at the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey on Monday.

The TV star, who is 48 years old, was seen waving to people outside the Abbey before the monarch's funeral service at 11 a.m.

He went to the church with other royals and world leaders to say goodbye to Her Majesty after she died on September 8 at the age of 96.

Grylls has met the Queen many times because of his job as Chief Scout. He also paid tribute to the royals when he was made an Officer of the British Empire in 2019.

He said, "I was lucky enough to meet the Queen on a number of occasions, like when she hosted a great event for Explorers at Buckingham Palace

or when I sat next to her at dinner and she gave me an OBE." When I saw her, she was happiest when we did scouting activities together.

I think it was one of the groups she was most proud to stand up for. He said, "I remember driving her up and down the ranks in 2012 as she checked on all the Queen's Scouts."

"At this time, her face was just a big smile from beginning to end."
