"Today we remember the extraordinary life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth," Prince William and Kate Middleton wrote in their post alongside several throwback photos, including pictures of her with some of her great-grandchildren—including Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis—as well as her corgis. "We all miss you. W & C."

King Charles III—who became king immediately following his mother's passing—also reflected on her 70 years on the throne, before expressing his appreciation to supporters of him and wife Queen Camilla.

"In marking the first anniversary of Her late Majesty's death and my Accession, we recall with great affection her long life, devoted service and all she meant to so many of us," he noted in a message and audio recording shared to the royal family's Instagram account alongside a photograph of Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in 1968. "I am deeply grateful, too, for the love and support that has been shown to my wife and myself during this year as we do our utmost to be of service to you all."

"As you know, I was unable to attend the awards last year as my grandmother passed away," the Duke of Sussex, who stepped back as a working member of the royal family in 2020, said at the WellChild Awards in London on Sept. 7, as seen in a video shared by Hello!. "As you also probably know, she would have been the first person to insist I still come to be with you all instead of going to her, and that's precisely why I know, exactly one year on, she is looking down on all of us tonight—happy we are together—continuing  to spotlight such an incredible community."
