Over the past few weeks, millions of people globally have paid their respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The monarch, who died aged 96 on 8 September, was the longest-serving female monarch in history, and celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June.

Queen Elizabeth was a constant for many generations and over the coming months we'll be getting used to some noticeable shifts, from the lyric change to the National Anthem, to King Charles' portrait gradually replacing that of his mothers on our currency and stamps.

We've rounded up some keepsakes to remember Queen Elizabeth's incredible 70-year reign, from collectable Royal Mint coins to useful tote bags and insightful books about her life.
