Crowds of mourners have flocked to London, Windsor and royal websites all through the UK on the national bank vacation, with the service set to draw hundreds of thousands of TV viewers throughout the globe.
The royal family, together with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will be among the many 2,000 individuals gathered at Westminster Abbey to keep in mind the late monarch on Monday morning, before a committal service at Windsor Castle.
The day marks the climax of what’s being thought to be the largest safety operation the UK has ever seen, surpassing the operation for the Platinum Jubilee weekend and the London 2012 Olympics, which noticed up to 10,000 cops on obligation per day.
The royal family will walk in procession behind the Queen’s coffin as it’s carried by way of the Gothic church by the army bearer party.
The King and the Queen Consort will walk instantly behind the coffin, adopted by the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the Prince and Princess of Wales.
George and Charlotte will walk with their parents side-by-side in formation, adopted by their uncle and aunt the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and other members of the royal family.
The service follows the Queen’s mendacity in state interval at Westminster Hall, which ended at 6.30am.
Chrissy Heerey, who was the last member of the general public to depart the Hall, said: “It’s one of the highlights of my life and I feel very privileged to be here.”
