There are so many moving photos of Queen Elizabeth’s coffin and procession, concluding ceremonies at St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland yesterday. The queen’s body was taken from the cathedral to Buckingham Palace in London. Tens of thousands of people packed the streets to pay respects and bid farewell. Those on the ground say the large crowd was so quiet, that at times, you could hear a pin drop. The Queen’s Scottish farewell was a six day affair.
Once the Queen’s body landed in London, her coffin was placed in a glass hearse. The streets were once again packed. Onlookers stood in the rain, to catch a glimpse of the Queen’s coffin as it made it’s way to the palace.
Today is a big deal in Queen Elizabeth’s funeral proceedings
Today, is when the Queen’s coffin will be moved from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall. Once there, she will lie in state for four days. The day will be punctuated by an elaborate processional where King Charles and royal family members walk behind the Queen’s coffin. The route, the ceremony is similar to that of Princess Diana’s funeral twenty years ago.
The Queen’s funeral is Monday.
