Search engine giant Google has paid a creative and emotional tribute to Queen Elizabeth II with its Doodle. It has paid respects with a grey coloured Google logo on its search engine to mark the demise of Queen, who passed away earlier this week.
Usually, the Google logo or otherwise known as the Google doodle has always been colourful with Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow colours.
Apart from this gesture, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai took to Twitter to send his own condolences to Her Majesty.
On behalf of Google, Pichai said “Sending our deepest condolences to the people of the UK and around the world mourning the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.”
He further praised her and said “Her steadfast leadership and public service have been a constant through many of our lifetimes. She will be missed.”

Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, died on Thursday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland after reigning for 70 years. She was 96.
She was also Queen of Canada, Australia and New Zealand, among other territories.
The State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will take place at Westminster Abbey in London on September 19 at 11 am local time, Buckingham Palace announced on Saturday.
Prior to the State Funeral, the late British monarch will lie-in-state at Westminster Hall nearby for four days to allow the public to pay their respects.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles, 73, who had been heir to the crown for 70 years — the longest in the country`s history — has ascended the British throne.
The development followed immediately upon his mother Queen Elizabeth II, 96, passed away after being monarch since 1952 – which surpassed Queen Victoria`s 63-year reign.
According to a YouGov poll, Charles` popularity with the British people is 42 per cent, with 24 per cent disliking him and 30 per cent being neutral.
