The Queen’s Last Turn: Line to see Elizabeth II’s 3-mile coffin when Prince William visits Sandringham

The royal guard collapses beside the queen’s coffin on the first night of lying in state

Members of the public walk past the late Queen’s coffin to pay their respects after the overnight queue as her recumbent state began at Westminster Hall.

The line now stretches 5km to Tower Bridge, and some mourners say they waited nine hours to reach her coffin.

King Charles III is taking a day of rest and reflection today and is not taking part in any events. The new Duke and Duchess of Wales will visit Sandrigham Estate in Norfolk to view flowers and tributes by sympathizers.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex go to Manchester, where they will light a candle in the cathedral in memory of the Queen.

Meanwhile, Princess Royal, accompanied by her husband Sir Tim Laurence, will visit Glasgow City Chambers to meet representatives of the organizations whose patron was the Queen.

On Wednesday, King Charles III and the rest of the ex-monarch’s family marched in tribute behind her coffin as it was transferred from Buckingham Palace to the Palace of Westminster.

Members can skip the line to see the Queen’s coffin

People standing in line for the Queen’s coffin denounced the special privileges of Members to skip the line.

Members may skip the line and bring up to four guests, Daily Mail reported.

Julie Newman, 56, said the special treatment was “an abuse of privilege.”

“I don’t mind queuing as everyone is in line. But there is no excuse for jumping in line. It’s unfair.”

“It’s not fair for something like that,” said Dexter Bowls.



The line now ends near Southwark Cathedral

The end of the queue for the Queen’s Coffin is at Southwark Cathedral, near London Bridge.

The line grew slightly to almost three miles by 9am on Thursday morning.

In an update on social media, the Department of Culture, Media and Sports reported that the queue was 2.8 miles long. The weather forecast is cloudy and people heading for the queue can use What3words: frozen.angel.guitar to locate the end.


“Gula went up my throat”: What is it like to see the queen’s coffin?

Among the first in the middle was 72-year-old Kenneth Taylor from Reading in the middle of England, who came with a neighbor and spent the night in a tent in the queue.

Taylor, tearing, said he felt sad to see the queen recumbent. “Gula got in my throat.”

– You know, we lost someone special. Her service to this country was truly persistent and unwavering. And she’s probably what I would call the Queen of Queens.

Thomas Hughes, 20, who waited nearly 14 hours that night with his brother, said seeing the coffin was overwhelming.

“You do all of this because you want to honor this lady … and I think when you go through it and then you come to the point where you wait for you, you’re just a little more emotional,” he said. “It’s a very powerful thing.”


The funeral rehearsal took place in the middle of the night

There were rehearsals at night before the queen’s funeral.

Meet the people in line to see the Queen’s Coffin

Mavis Sibanda told my colleague Maryam Zakir-Hussain that she wanted “the Queen’s last memory” on such an historic day.

“I’m from Zambia so I’ve always thought about her. I wanted to be part of what was happening. “

Devon’s Patricia Wass said she was prepared to wait all night to see the queen’s coffin.

The 64-year-old said, “My mother is a staunch monarchist and was very upset about the Queen’s passing, and I wanted to do it for her too.”

She had felt very emotional since the death of the queen and was therefore prepared to stand in line “for as long as it was needed.” If it’s all night, it’s all night. “

Meanwhile, Tzu-Ching Hung, 22, arrived in London from Taiwan yesterday and wanted to take this opportunity to witness history while in the UK.

“It’s amazing that so many people come to pay homage to the Queen.”

Although the crowd was mostly cheerful and welcoming, a classic queue policy emerged that soon turned nasty.

What is it like standing in line for the queen’s coffin?

My friend Maryam Zakir-Hussain standing in line to see the queen’s coffin itself.

“I hate queues – I get tired, my feet hurt, my stomach growls. So waiting anywhere between the expected five to twelve hours in a line that can be late at night has never been a great idea.

And yet I was there at 4:30 pm Wednesday at London Bridge, securing my spot among the tens of thousands to see the Queen lying in the state at Westminster Hall.

But when I joined the line I was exhausted.

I was wrong in thinking that the back of the line (and therefore probably the starting point for someone to join) is Southwark Park. So I went there at 3pm, ready to get through the masses of people as I fought for a seat.
