The queen is likely to break away from tradition and pay her respects to her housekeeper, Annette Wilkin, by attending her funeral, despite not attending them as a rule.
Annette, who had worked for the royal family for 45 years, died suddenly after a short illness aged 72, reported Daily Mail.
Annette was said to be so loved by the monarch that she was given one of her famous royal corgis.
The beloved royal aid had worked for the royal family in various roles since 1974, starting out as a maid before working her way up to head housekeeper at Windsor Castle.
She also managed Frogmore House, which was the reception venue for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their 2018 wedding.
