Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at the age of 66, following a reign of more than 70 years.

The longest running soap was visited by the late monarch last year, to mark 60 years on air.

Elizabeth was given a tour of the ITV drama’s studios in Trafford, Greater Manchester, including a stop off at the Rovers Return pub.

The monarch also walked down Weatherfield’s famous cobbled streets, meeting cast and crew members.

Her trip also saw her meet community groups at Manchester Cathedral.

The Queen, who asked how they had managed to keep filming during the pandemic, said to the cast and crew: ‘It’s really marvellous you’ve been able to carry on.’
