Penny Lancaster has taken to Instagram to reveal Rod Stewart’s touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth II following her devastating death. The leggy model, 51, stood at the back of the venue as she filmed her rocker beau in action as he performed in America.
The Maggie May hitmaker is currently performing at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
In view of her 160,000 followers, his wife of 25 years, Penny, shared his touching tribute to the late Queen.
Rod stood in the centre of the stage flanked by his backing singers and musicians.
Behind Rod stood a massive screen emblazoned with two pictures of Queen Elizabeth II, one from the start of her reign and one of her ahead of her death.
The royal emblem was between the two as Rod gave a moving performance dedicated to the monarch.
The nation’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II passed away aged 96 at her private royal residence in the Scottish Highlands, one of her favourite places, surrounded by close family who rushed to be at her side.
The Prince of Wales is now King, having acceded to the throne immediately on the death of his mother.
In a statement, the Palace said at the time: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
Following the news that the Queen had died, Rod took to Instagram to pay tribute to the monarch.
As well as the devastating news of the Queen’s death, the singer told how his family also faced their own personal tragedy.
Rod told his 1.2 million followers: “It has been a devastating 48 hours.
“We lost my brother Don on Tuesday at 94 and today we have all lost Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at 96.
“The Queen has been an unwavering presence throughout my life and a great unifier.
He went on: “A shining star that will never fade in our hearts and souls.
“What a privilege it was to perform for her.
“My deepest sympathies to the Royal Family.
“God save the King,” he ended his post.
Penny also paid tribute with an endearing picture of the Queen smiling happily.
She penned: “May Her Majesty’s memory be a blessing may she rest in peace.
“Prayers and thoughts are with the family of our wonderful Queen, as they come together at this very sad time #hermajestythequeen #godbless,” she added.
