Raging on Twitter, Denise said: "The Queen must have known this was totally and utterly unnecessary, cruel & ridiculous though as a few weeks later she was happy to mingle at her grand old age."

Denise also posted two photographs of the Queen to accompany her caption.

One was of the Queen sitting alone at the funeral, while the other was of the Queen among a group of politicians, but not wearing a mask, which was taken a few weeks afterwards.

There were some that thought Denise was right with her controversial comments, with one replying to her: "I'm sorry to say but her sitting alone at the funeral was all theatre. It was all about looking to do the right thing as the whole nation was watching."

Others felt that Denise had gone in too hard on Her Majesty, with the soap star being branded "harsh" for her comments.

One fan replied: "This is so harsh, she follows rules like majority of us. Why would we not believe until proven otherwise.

"We had scientists telling us what we should do. Some of us elderly do anything to stay well we are not all lucky enough to ignore rules."

Another disagreed with Denise, replying: "Yes @RealDeniseWelch I'm sure the Queen sat alone at the love of her life's funeral just to prove a point! Maybe she was just doing her best to lead by example like others should have."
