Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard have fondly remembered being told to keep the volume down during Good Morning Britain filming so they didn’t wake up Queen Elizabeth II.

The GMB duo reflected on their experiences broadcasting live from Buckingham Palace when the Queen – who sadly died on Thursday aged 96 – was in residence, and they had to be careful not to be ‘too loud’.

Discussing her legacy during a special episode of the ITV breakfast show on Friday morning, Ben said: ‘She is the monarch that more people have met.

‘We’ve been lucky, haven’t we, to broadcast live from Buckingham Palace. It all felt so exciting, because we knew the Queen was somewhere in her private apartments, fast asleep. We couldn’t be too loud.’

As Ben joked that being quiet might have been difficult for his co-star, Kate laughed: ‘We were told not to wake her up!’

During Monday’s episode, Ben also read out a poem sent in by a viewer paying tribute to the late monarch, with GMB having just aired a video reflecting on her relationship with her late husband Prince Philip.

He said: ‘I just wanna read a poem that Charlotte had found that had been emailed to us from Margaret. It really is quite moving, and particularly off the back of what we heard the Queen talking there about the Duke of Edinburgh.’

The poem read: ‘She was our North, South, East and West, she was our constant, our nation’s best.

‘She served us for so many years, now our people are in tears.

‘We can be sad as she departs, as we say goodbye with broke hearts.

‘But we can also know this day, she’s reunited with her strength and stay.’

With presenters situated around the world to lead the coverage, GMB replaced its usual ticker with a simple black band at the bottom with the date, while there has been no music played between segments as a mark of respect.

In addition, ITV hasn’t cut to any adverts during the broadcast as the UK enters a 10-day period of national mourning.

During the show, Susanna Reid said: ‘She was able to be at the same time, utterly regal and totally down to earth. That’s the person that we’re hearing about, that’s the person we’ve lost.

‘She was as distant as someone could possibly be, she was the Queen, and yet we all felt like we knew her.’
