People have been waiting to pay their last respects to the late Monarch, Queen Elizabeth. Thousands of people are flocking and staying in queues to say goodbye to the longest-serving Monarch for the last time.

New Monarch, King Charles III, members of the royal family, along with the senior staff of the late Queen, will stroll behind the coffin without any music. This walk will take 38 minutes.

The formal parade will move along the Mall, down Horse Guards Road and across Horse Guards Parade, onto Whitehall and into the Palace of Westminster.

DCMS said that the route with a limited capacity would open at 11 am on the day, with people welcomed in order of arrival time amid expected large queues.

Tents, gazebos or camping gear, barbecues, fire equipment, and alcohol are restricted. Grievers must keep noise to a minimum when the parade passes them and have been told to act suitably, dispose of litter properly, and follow the instructions of police and stewards or face being asked to leave.
