A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "Her Majesty very much enjoyed meeting Captan Sir Tom and his family at Windsor a year ago".

Moore rose to prominence a year ago amid the global coronavirus pandemic, thanks to his efforts helping to raise £1,000 for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his backyard.

The veteran set out to raise £1,000 from his charity challenge but his efforts struck a chord, and praise and donations flooded in.

Captain Tom's initiative, which started in April ahead of his 100th birthday, quickly went viral, resulting in some £33 million (about $40 million) of donations pouring in from both the United Kingdom and overseas.

Sir Tom started his challenge a little over three weeks earlier, and encouraged people to continue to donate to NHS Charities Together.

Capt Sir Tom was awarded a knighthood from the Queen in the summer at Windsor Castle.

Today his family confirmed Sir Tom had died, aged 100.
