Tracy Grimshaw burst into tears after viewing the Queen’s coffin as she lies in state in London.

The cameras were rolling when the outgoing A Current Affair host broke down outside Westminster Hall, where the Queen’s body is being viewed by millions ahead of her funeral.

Wiping away tears, Grimshaw said: “I’m going to take a moment… After all these years and she’s still doing her duty. And I really think she’d just like to get back to her husband.”

She admitted, however, they were “not sad tears”.

“It’s very moving in there,” she said.

“I was going to come out and be all journalistic and give you all the history of the building and the history of the Queen’s association with that building but I’m not going to do that.

“I’m going to take a moment.”

So far hundreds of thousands of people have queued up to see the Queen’s coffin, with those in the line now having to wait nearly 14 hours.

Her Majesty’s body will be moved on a gun carriage to Westminster Abbey on Monday for her funeral, which will be attended by the Royal Family, world leaders and dignitaries from around the globe.

Afterwards, she will be driven to Windsor for a committal ceremony at St George’s Chapel, where she will be laid to rest next to her husband, the late Prince Philip.

Grimshaw announced before the Queen’s death last Thursday that she would be quitting the A Current Affair later this year.

She has hosted the Channel Nine program for 17 years.

“Normally right about now we’d be telling you what to expect tomorrow night but lately I’ve personally been thinking longer term, and I have some news that I wanted you to hear from me before you hear it from anyone else,” Grimshaw told viewers.

“I’ve decided to finish up with A Current Affair this year.

“It’s been a big decision and before the gossip websites start telling you rubbish, I want you to know it’s been my decision alone and I’m not being shoved out the door by the boys club because I’m too old.

“I’m not too old, I’m just a bit tired. And for the record both the boys and the girls have asked me to stay.“But I’ve basically been a shift worker for 26 years, driving to work before dawn for nine years on the Today Show, and the past 17 years driving home after dark here on A Current Affair and it’s time for less of that daily obligation.

“You’ve let me indulge my love of interviewing here. I’ve talked to people who’ve made us all laugh and cry, who’ve shared their triumphs and their challenges and their wisdom and despair.

“And because it’s your show not mine and you get to vote each night with your remote control, you told us you wanted more of that. So thank you for that opportunity.

“Thank you for your loyalty. I hope I’ve repaid it. I’m around until November then I’m going to take a long holiday, but it’s business as usual until then.”
