Emmanuel Macron, the French President, said the monarch “embodied the British nation’s continuity and unity for over 70 years.

“I remember her as a friend of France, a kind-hearted queen who has left a lasting impression on her country and her century.”

EU leaders also paid homage to the Queen, with Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission President, saying her death had left a “sense of loss in the lives of many” across the globe.
