Two minutes of silence in Britain at the end of the Queen’s funeral

It was reported that there will be a two-minute silence at the end of the state funeral services for Queen Elizabeth II on Monday at 11.55.

Silence will follow the sound of the Last Lent to end a service bringing together members of the royal family along with visiting monarchs and presidents from around the world, senior British dignitaries and members of the public at Westminster Abbey.

The congregation of more than 2,000 people will be led by King Charles III to say goodbye to Britain’s longest-serving ruler, before her body is taken to Windsor Castle for burial with her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

According to a long-term, meticulously crafted plan with contributions from the late monarch, the coffin with the Queen will be picked up on Monday morning, September 19, from Westminster Hall, where it lies in the state from Wednesday.

The last members of the public to pay their respects will walk past the oak coffin at 6.30am before being taken to the abbey shortly after 10.30am on a carriage pulled by 142 Royal Navy personnel.

The coffin would be lifted from the catafalque it stood in Westminster Hall – adorned with the royal banner and carrying the crown, sphere and scepter of the Imperial State – by the coffin bearers of the 1st Battalion of the Grenadier Guard, of which the Queen was in command of the company.
