King Charles III to lead final sombre procession of Queen’s coffin to Westminster Abbey


World leaders have arrived at Westminster Abbey for the funeral ceremony of the longest reigning Monarch of Britain Today.

The new Monarch of the United Kingdom, King Charles III, will lead the sombre procession of Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey.


The funeral service will begin at 11:00 BST. The funeral ceremony of the Queen of Britain will witness the end of 10 days of events across the UK since the Queen’s death.

London police are preparing for high security at Britain’s most historic event organised by the Royal family, where political leaders and other notables are invited.

Before the service begins, the Queen’s coffin will be handed in the first three processions throughout the day through Parliament Square, a distance of about 820ft (250m).

The Prince of Wales, Prince William and the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, will once more walk along with their father, the King, who will walk alongside his siblings, the Queen’s four children.

Two of Queen Elizabeth II’s great-grandchildren, Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, will also walk behind the Queen’s coffin.

The State Gun Carriage will carry the Queen’s coffin pulled by 142 sailors. A guard of honour will stand in the square of all three military services, accompanied by a Royal Marines band.


The final people to attend the Queen’s lying-in-state paid their respects at Westminster Hall just after 06:30 after four-and-a-half days, and a queue stretched as far as Southwark Park in south-east London.

Around 2000 mourners will bid their last goodbye to the late Monarch, including 500 dignitaries with presidents, prime ministers and foreign royalty among the guests.

US President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron have arrived, while Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukraine’s first lady Olena Zelenska will also be at the abbey.

Many European royal families will also be members, including Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Denmark, and the Emperor and Empress of Japan.
