The Queen line closed to new entrants after XXXX people lined up for hours to see the coffin

The line to visit the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II, which rests in the catafalque at Westminster Hall, was finally closed ahead of Monday’s state funeral.

The Queen has been in London since Thursday evening, with huge lines of mourners winding along the River Thames waiting to wait at least 14 hours.

The line closed on Sunday at 10:45 PM pending a ceremony where the deceased monarch will be transported from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey and finally to Windsor Castle.

Mourners were scheduled by 6:30 a.m. Monday morning to reach the coffin, but were warned that it might be closed early to ensure that as many visitors as possible could enter the ancient hall before Her Majesty’s recumbent period ended.

Announcing the queue closure, the Department of Digitization, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) tweeted: “The queue for the meeting in Her Majesty’s State is now exhausted and is now closed to new entrants.

“Please do not try to join the queue. The stewards will be managing those who are already nearby. Thank you for your understanding.”
