While Queen Elizabeth is laid to rest in a state funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, Rod Stewart's wife will be working at the historic event as a Special Constable.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Penny Lancaster - who was inspired to join the police after she had a taste of life on the beat through a reality TV series she took part in - said she feels "very proud" to be working alongside her colleagues to support the police's effort amid the monarch's passing.

The mum-of-two said: "It was a great privilege to work at the Queen's memorial service at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday. I signed the oath of Office of Constable to Her Majesty the Queen just over a year ago, April last year.

"I have extreme pride to serve on the streets of London on Friday and I will be again on Wednesday when the Queen's cortege and on Monday, which is a historic moment I'll be very proud to be at."
