The Royal Family has officially vetoed to use of certain footage of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral from ever being used again, the Mirror reports.

Millions of people tuned into the funeral of the late Queen, who was Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

She passed away peacefully on September 8, sending the whole nation into a 10-day period of mourning. People lined up for up to 14 hours to view Her Majesty's coffin while it was lying-in-state, and the funeral was full of grand displays of pomp and pageantry.

The day of remembrance was an opportunity for thousands of people to pay their respects to the United Kingdom's beloved monarch, and even more so for close relatives of the 96-year-old. The Mirror revealed that Queen Elizabeth II even added her own personal touches - ensuring her hearse was lit with interior lighting to ensure onlookers were able to view her coffin.

Many royals attended the day's events wearing jewelry gifted to them by the late sovereign, including Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, and Meghan Markle. After the late sovereign's committal service her son, King Charles III, personally thanked the Archbishop of York, allegedly telling him: "Thank you, that was good work. You were wonderful," per Wales Online.

Now, it seems, Buckingham Palace will be banning certain emotional scenes from being broadcast again.

Per The Guardian, royal staff members allegedly contacted the BBC, Sky News, and ITV News during the funeral's broadcast - giving them a number of timestamps of footage that they wished to be excluded from further broadcasts and future social media uploads.

There were five timestamps in total, and they included several members of the royal family who were grieving during the funeral service. Other footage included was an incident in which a member of the public lunged at the Queen's coffin while it was lying-in-state at Westminster Hall.

The Guardian also reported that unedited "live" coverage of the late Queen's funeral will remain on BBC iPlayer for one month, before it will be removed. After this point, however, Buckingham Palace will negotiate with the BBC about which parts of the day's ceremonies will be allowed to be shown.

Any social media clips in use in future will have to be "solemn and dignified," as per Buckingham Palace's request. Moreover, footage will only be permitted for use in news broadcasts, not entertainment shows.

Over the years, the families of many high-profile figures have made similar requests to the media, but this is usually done prior to an event, the Guardian detailed.
