  • Royals from around the world were among the attendees at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. 
  • Some, like Queen Margarethe of Denmark, are distant cousins of the late monarch. 
  • Others, like Emperor Naruhito of Japan, were longtime friends. 
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, a distant cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, attended the funeral with her son Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark.

Margrethe II of Denmark, 82, became the longest-living reigning queen in Europe after the death of her friend and third cousin, Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8. 

She and the British monarch had a close relationship and referred to each other by their childhood nicknames, Town & Country Magazine reported. Queen Margrethe II said she'd call her "Lilibet," and that Queen Elizabeth II would call her "Daisy."

According to the outlet, Margrethe wrote that Queen Elizabeth II was "a towering figure among the European monarchs and a great inspiration to us all" in a condolence book for King Charles III. 

Princess Charlene of Monaco made a rare public appearance alongside her husband, Prince Albert, to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at her funeral.

Stepping out for the somber occasion, Charlene — who has dealt with a series of health complications since 2021 — opted on wearing a long-sleeved black dress with a fascinator and black stilettos. She walked into Westminster Abbey with her arm around her husband, Prince Albert, who wore a military uniform. 

After Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Charlene said she'd been deeply saddened by the news in an Instagram post shared on September 9.

"A truly great lady whose dedication and service was recognized throughout the world during the 70 years of her reign," Charlene captioned a photo she posted of the Queen.

Queen Letizia and Felipe VI of Spain, another distant cousin of the Queen, were also in attendance. Both reportedly referred to her as "Aunt Lilibet."

Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI of Spain were related to Queen Elizabeth II through her late husband, Prince Phillip, the Daily Express reported. 

According to the outlet, after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh in 2021, Felipe wrote a letter of condolence to the Queen referring to her by an affectionate nickname: "Aunt Lilibet."

Lilibet is the Queen's familial nickname. It was coined by her grandfather King George V when she was a child.

Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands was in attendance with her son King Willem-Alexander and his wife Queen Maxima.

Princess Beatrix was Queen of the Netherlands for 33 years before she abdicated the throne to her son, King Willen-Alexander, in 2013. 

In the Channel 5 2021 documentary "Beatrix: The Queen Who Gave Up The Crown," royal journalist Tina Adebayo said Princess Beatrix and Queen Elizabeth II were "close friends and confidants."

"It's not very many people that understand what it's like to be the queen of a country," she added. "They're united by being quite lonely at the top." 

Emperor Naruhito — a longtime friend of the Queen — went to the funeral with his wife, Empress Masako.

Emperor Naruhito had known Queen Elizabeth II for nearly 50 years, according to The Japan Times.

He first met the Queen in 1975, when Elizabeth visited his parents — Emperor Emeritus Akihito and Empress Emerita Michiko — during the only visit to Japan she'd make during her lifetime. 

Emperor Naruhito later joined the Queen for tea at Buckingham Palace while studying at Oxford University in 1983. The following year, he spent time with the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral Castle, telling an aide that it felt as if he were "a member of the family." 

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium were also in attendance.

King Philippe of Belgium is the Queen's third cousin, according to Wales Online

King Charles III represented the British monarchy during Philippe's wedding to Queen Mathilde in 1999. 

The Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, who was reportedly good friends with the Queen, arrived with his son Prince Abdul Mateen.

Bolkiah is now the world's longest-reigning monarch following the Queen's death earlier this month. He has served as the Sultan of Brunei since 1967. 

According to Arab News, Bolkiah had a close relationship with the Queen, who knighted both him and his father. 

Queen Rania of Jordan paid special tribute to Queen Elizabeth II with her outfit during the funeral.

Queen Rania of Jordan sported the same black coat she had worn to visit the Queen during a visit to Windsor Castle in 2001, according to The National News.

Earlier this week, Queen Rania told ITV that Queen Elizabeth II had been a "guiding hand" during her reign. 

"To me, she is the Queen of the world," Queen Rania said. "She may be the Queen of England but I think symbolically she is the Queen to all of us."

King Harald V of Norway was a second cousin to Queen Elizabeth II.

King Harald V told King Charles III that he was mourning "the loss of a dear relative and confidant friend," according to The Local

"For nearly a century, Her Majesty devoted her life to the service of the Commonwealth, following the British people through good days and bad, in times of happiness and sorrow," his statement read. "We send our deepest condolences to the British people on the loss of their beloved Queen." 

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, who attended with his wife Queen Silvia, was also related to the Queen.

The king shared a moving tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on Instagram, including photos of the Queen's state visits to Sweden.
