Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was taken to Windsor Castle, where she will be interred next to her husband Prince Philip.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will be buried next to their parents and sister Princess Margaret in a private ceremony of the royal family at 19:30

The hearse carrying the coffin of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II arrived at Windsor Castle on the afternoon of September 19 after a journey of more than 30 km from Wellington Gate in London.

People stood on either side of the hearse route. Some tossed flowers towards the coffin truck, others chanted to bid farewell to the Queen.

Burial with 800 guests was held at St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, before Queen Elizabeth II was buried.

Many religious leaders recite prayers, before the monarch’s crown, staff and orb, a symbol of monarchy’s power, are lifted from the coffin and placed on the altar.

The patriarchal butler, the highest-ranking official in the royal service, then performs the ritual of breaking the “Executive Staff” and placing two pieces of staff on the coffin, signifying the end of the period of service to the monarch and the end of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was then lowered into the royal crypt.

The ceremony ended when Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, head of the Church of England, read prayers and the choir sang “God Bless the King.”

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at Balmoral Palace, Scotland, at the age of 96.

She came to power in 1952 at the age of 25, after the death of her father George VI, and has reigned for more than 70 years, longer than any other monarch in British history.

The Ministers attended a visitation to the Queen’s coffin, a reception of representatives of nations hosted by King Charles III at Buckingham Palace on the evening of September 18 and a reception hosted by British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly at Westminster Abbey on September 19 following the Queen’s funeral.

The impact of her death can be clearly seen in the reactions from all over the world.

The British government has declared ten days of mourning and similar initiatives have been taken in other countries.

King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix have a prominent place in Westminster Abbey.

The Dutch royal couple and Princess Beatrix sit in the front row, directly at queen Elizabeth’s coffin.

The couple and the princess travelled to London on Sunday for the funeral of the British queen.

Next to them are the Swedish Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustaf and the Danish Queen Margrethe and Crown Prince Frederik.

Also present are the Belgian King Philippe and Queen Mathilde and the Spanish King Felipe and Queen Letizia.

King Charles was clearly emotional at the start of his mother Queen Elizabeth’s funeral ceremony. Carrying the coffin inside, the king wiped away a tear.

The coffin was carried into Westminster Abbey. Behind the coffin were not only Charles but also Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Edward, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew.

Earlier rumours that Prince Harry will not be present, however his stands will surely promotes the British cultures considering he had close to a billion views in his own weeding with Meghan .

Princess Catherine, their children George and Charlotte and Harry’s wife Meghan also joined the coffin.

Back in time – When Andrew had a prominent role during the memorial service for his father Prince Philip in May, criticism arose.

On social media, people expressed outrage at the fact that he was accompanying Queen Elizabeth on his arm in Westminster Abbey.

According to British media, several members of the royal family would also have been stunned.

They had hoped that he would keep himself in the background because of the abuse case. That case came to an end in early March when the prince paid a settlement amount.

Britain’s Prince Andrew will “always cherish” his mother’s love. That can be read Sunday in a statement from the duke of York.

The post is accompanied by a photo of a young Elizabeth holding Andrew as a baby.

He also cherishes her “compassion, care and self-confidence”.

The Duke continues that Elizabeth’s knowledge and wisdom are “infinite.” “I will miss your insights, advice and humour.” In addition, he will carry her forever in his heart “with the greatest love and gratitude”.

The prince calls it “an honor” to have been able to serve her. “Mother – of the nation, your dedication and personal merits to our nation are unique,” he states. People show “their love and respect” in many ways, says the prince.

The Duke of York became discredited after being accused of sexual abuse, which he has always denied.

As a result of the case, he had to surrender all his military titles and honorary titles in January.

  • The sermon
    The sermon was taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, the official prayer book of the Church of England.

It is said that the Queen was devoted to this book, along with the hymns and readings that the Queen had personally chosen for her funeral.

Welby spoke after the service of the honor of his life, but also of “one of the saddest moments, to preach at the state funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, whose hope and faith in Jesus Christ inspired her servant leadership.”

Those who serve will be loved and remembered, while those who cling to power and privilege are long forgotten.

That is what Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said in his homily at the funeral service of Queen Elizabeth.

Welby’s musing, addressed to the 2,000 attendees at Westminster Abbey, was about eternal life after death, a central message of traditional Christian burials.

The archbishop cited the queen’s promise on her 21st birthday to dedicate her life to service.

“Rarely has such a promise been fulfilled so well. Few leaders receive the outpouring of love we have seen.”

  • Meghan and Princess Catherine
    Princess Catherine wore her jewelry during queen Elizabeth’s funeral ceremony on Monday. According to British media, it is a necklace and earrings.

The queen wore the pearl necklace regularly in the eighties and nineties.

Catherine also had the jewel on last year during the funeral of Prince Philip. In addition, she wore earrings with pearls and diamonds that belonged to Elizabeth.

Catherine wasn’t the only one to honor the Queen with her jewelry.

The queen’s great-granddaughter, Charlotte, had pinned up a brooch that she had received as a gift from the Queen.

Meghan, the wife of Prince Harry, chose earrings that Elizabeth gave her in 2018.

  • King Charles
  • The service is led by, among others, the Anglican priest David Hoyle.

The choirs of Westminster Abbey and Chapel Royal sing the songs.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and senior clergyman of the Anglican Church, delivers a sermon.

  • Well-known names.

Which Majesties and Highnesses attended the ceremony?

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako of Japan were also present, while the imperial couple do not normally attend funerals.

Queen Rania and King Abdullah of Jordan were also seen in London, as were royals from Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Qatar and Tonga.

On the gigantic guest list we come across a lot of well-known names.

After ten days of ceremonies and mourning traditions, Queen Elizabeth II is being taken to her final resting place today.

As many as 2,000 people took their seats in Westminster Abbey to bid the Queen’s farewell, including royals from all corners of the world, young and old.

The late Queen’s large family sat in the pews starting with her four children, King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Princess Edward, and their (ex-)husbands, Queen Consort Camilla, Timothy Laurence, Sarah Ferguson and Countess Sophie of Wessex.

All eight of the Queen’s grandchildren with their husbands were also at the front of the church: Prince William and Princess Kate, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Zara and Mike Tindall, Peter Philips, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

Of the Queen’s twelve great-grandchildren, only Prince George and Princess Charlotte came.

But many more Windsors fill Westminster Abbey. There are the cousins of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Michael of Kent and Prince Edward of Kent, who will come with their wives, children and grandchildren.

The children and grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret are also expected.

Almost every royal family has sent a delegate to London for this sad occasion.

From the Oranges came King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix, who also got a special spot front row and can also be at the private service tonight.

King Felip and Queen Mathilde of Belgium also crossed the North Sea.

We also saw King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco and Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.

From Scandinavia came Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark; King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden and King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway.

Prince Harry, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth, walked out of Westminster Abbey with his wife. They held hands. Meghan wore earrings that Elizabeth gave her in 2018.

The little Princess Charlotte (7), daughter of heir to the throne Prince William and Princess Catherine, could not hold back her tears during the funeral ceremony of Queen Elizabeth.

Her mother was immediately ready to wipe away the tears and comfort her child.

Her brother Prince George (9) was also present at the funeral ceremony of his great-grandmother in Westminster Abbey.

He also struggled with his tears during the tribute, as can be seen in photos. During the service, Catherine put her hand on the knee of her eldest child.

Their aunt Meghan also had a hard time after the ceremony.

Photos show Prince Harry’s wife shed a few tears when the coffin was lifted into the hearse.

  • The United States.

Of course, Britain’s most important allies are present en masse today.

US President Biden and a procession of European government leaders, including French President Macron, have come to London.

Even the Japanese Emperor Naruhito has travelled to London for the grand state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

And of course the European royal houses are not missing: from the Netherlands, King Willem Alexander, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix are present.

And also from the Commonwealth, former colonies where the British monarch is still head of state, high delegations have travelled to London to pay queen Elizabeth the last respects.

But not the whole world is welcome at this historic funeral.

Russian President Putin was explicitly not invited to join the rest of the world leaders.

Russia is embroiled in a war with Ukraine, and Britain is one of Kiev’s most important allies.

  • Not on the list…
    There seems to be no room at the Queen’s funeral for countries that have difficult or even hostile relations with London.

But there have also been invitations that you wouldn’t expect so quickly.

North Korea and Iran?
Although Kim Jong-un did not fly to London in person, North Korea was invited to the funeral.

The ambassador of the Stalinist state is expected to be there. And Iran, with which London, like the rest of the Western world, lives at odds with, has also received an invitation.

London also seems to be sending out a political signal with its invitation policy.

But that also happens the other way around: because although superpower China has been invited, President Xi Jinping is absent today, he is sending his vice president.

Belarus, a loyal ally of Moscow, has also not been invited. The Taliban regime that took power in Afghanistan a year ago is not welcome in London today.

And that also applies to Myanmar, where a military junta is in power, and for which economic sanctions have been imposed.

Delegations from President Assad’s Syria and President Maduro’s Venezuela will also not be there today.

London does not maintain normal diplomatic ties with these countries.

  • The flowers on the coffin of Queen Elizabeth

The flowers come from the garden of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove House.

The piece also contains rosemary and myrtle. Rosemary stands for memory and myrtle for a happy marriage, a reference to Elizabeth’s husband Philip, with whom she was married for more than seventy years.

The myrtle has grown from a cutting of the queen’s bridal bouquet.

In addition, there are roses, dahlias and geraniums in the flower arrangement. What is on the note is not known.

The flowers on the coffin of Queen Elizabeth are personally chosen by her son, King Charles. Between the flower arrangement is a personal note from the new king.

  • Royal Vault

At the moment, the coffin containing Philip’s body is still in the Royal Vault. Of all the locations in the chapel, by far the most royals are buried here.

Most of them found their final resting place here in the first half of the nineteenth century.

Prince Philip was the last person to be buried here, but his body will be moved after Elizabeth’s funeral.

About a year and a half ago, Queen Elizabeth lost her great love, Prince Philip.

The heartbreaking image of the monarch, mother soul alone in the pews at Philips funeral, went all over the world.

Now that she too has left the land of the living behind and the two are back together, this means that Philip’s body will be moved one last time.

Elizabeth and Philip were the epitome of a royal power couple. For 73 years, the two supported each other through thick and thin.

And next , at Elizabeth’s funeral, the two will finally be reunited.

After a year and a half in the Royal Vault of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the coffin containing Philip’s remains will be buried next to Elizabeth in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.

  • St George’s Chapel
    That house chapel of the British royals has seen many royal family members over the years.

For example, a lot of royals are married, and the Order of the Garter holds its ceremonies there. But the chapel has also been in use for years as a final resting place for members of the British monarchy.

The death of a beloved mother, a tough new job, always and everywhere being followed by cameras… Is it just too much for Charles?

A video of a frustrated king goes viral. Leaking pen You know it: on bad days, even the smallest setback, such as a leaking pen or writing down the wrong date, […]

In the King George VI Memorial Chapel, where Elizabeth and Philip will be laid to rest next Monday, are also the bodies of Elizabeth’s immediate family.

Father George, mother Elizabeth and sister Margaret are from Monday reunited with their daughter, sister, son-in-law and brother-in-law.

  • Meghan pays tribute to the Queen with donated earrings

Arriving at the funeral, Meghan took her place with Harry in a parade within the royal family right behind Prince William, Princess Kate and her children.

Meghan expressed her grief over the Queen’s death by wearing pearl earrings to the funeral, which Elizabeth II herself had given her.

Although it was clear all along that both Meghan and Kata were full of bitter sadness and holding back tears, they finally managed the ceremony with grace and without any visible missteps.

Kate, the Princess of Wales, had the funeral ceremony all the more challenging because apparently two of her children – Prince George (9) and Princess Charlotte (7) – went to it at the request of the King himself.

She complemented the elegant black dress and hat with a diamond necklace and earrings.
Despite her obvious sadness and repressed tears, Kate managed the final farewell to Elizabeth II excellently, and the British press is already highlighting her appearance and demeanor as a perfect picture of the dignity, humility and representation of the royal family on such a sad and challenging day.

The eyes of all onlookers at least once during the Queen’s funeral were also on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

Even before the ceremony itself, there was a lot of speculation about where Harry and Meghan would be seated during the funeral.

And while the royal family has certainly symbolically made it clear to them that they (by choice) do not belong to its inner circle, they have also received due respect.

Duchess Meghan eventually sat down with Prince Harry in the second row of the Queen’s coffin, but right behind Charles III and Queen-Wife Camilla, 75.

  • The children
    The children then sat in the first row among their parents. Across the alley, also in the front row, sat King Charles III with Camilla, Princess Anne, and Princes Edward and Andrew.

For children, this is one of the most difficult tasks they had to undergo as the youngest of the royal family. The beacon of safety in this difficult moment is their mother Kate, who led both of them by the hand.

This is the first time that children have appeared in public after the death of the Queen. Until the last moment, it was not clear whether he would attend Monday’s funeral.

However, the parents were indicated by the palace that their participation would be an important and symbolic message to the monarchy about succession.

The youngest of William and Kate’s children, Prince Louise, stayed at home.
This sight tears the heart.

Dressed in a black suit with a black tie with a combed heel of blond hair, the brave heir to the throne in the second line George (9) and two years younger sister Charlotte in a black dress, jacket and hat with a wide brim.

The royal great-grandchildren arrived in Westminster Abbey in a car with their mother, Princess of Wales Catherine, and Queen Wife Camilla.

They were driven by a shiny Rolls-Royce. The two children watched in amazement as the crowds of hundreds of thousands of onlookers stood along the road.

After everyone entered the cathedral, they waited aside for the arrival of a procession with the coffin of the queen, whom the youngest children addressed with the cute name Gan-Gan (from the English great-grandmother, or great-grandmother).

Subsequently, they joined the procession for their grandfather King Charles III, who was flanked by his wife Camilla, Catherine joined the heir to the throne, Prince of Wales William.

  • French President Emmanuel Macron and others

Macron, along with some 500 other world statesmen and members of prominent royal families and a huge number of other mourners, will attend the Queen’s funeral at Westminster Cathedral today.

Prime Minister Petr Fiala flew to London for the Czech Republic, but in addition to him, US President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier also arrived.

Representatives of Russia, Belarus, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Syria and Burma did not receive the invitation.

Yesterday, a reception was held for statesmen and prominent personalities at Buckingham Palace, hosted by the new King Charles III (formerly known in the Czech Republic as Prince Charles) together with his Queen Wife Camilla.

French President Emmanuel Macron was spotted yesterday along with his wife on the streets of London wearing sneakers and sunglasses.

Macron came to pay his respects to Queen Elizabeth II, whose coffin was displayed at London’s Westminster Hall before today’s funeral.

Queen Elizabeth died on 8 September at the age of 96, the second longest-reigning world ruler in history, and was succeeded on the throne by her son, Charles III.
French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte were photographed yesterday in London’s Westminster district near Buckingham Palace before coming to pay tribute to the coffin of the recently deceased Queen Elizabeth II.
However, the French president and his wife arrived at Westmister Hall, where Queen Elizabeth’s coffin is on display, in formal attire.

The French press subsequently reported that Macron and his wife had taken to the streets of London “incognito” to see with their own eyes the multi-hour queue of mourners and to share the pain of the British people who had lost their queen.

Accompanied by advisers and bodyguards, however, the French presidential couple still caused an uproar, and people on social networks did not miss the opportunity to share photos or videos.

“Emmanuel Macron incognito is probably the least incognito person I’ve ever seen,” one commenter said on Twitter, adding:

“As talented to disguise as a giraffe in dark glasses trying to get into a polar bear golf club.”

Dozens of statesmen, state representatives…

Only the head of the United States has been given an exemption and can travel to the official agenda items in his private car, an armored Cadillac.

Dozens of statesmen, state representatives, monarchs and diplomatic delegations came to pay their respects in the Westminster Hall of the British Parliament to the coffin of the late monarch ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral at Buckingham Palace on Monday, 73.

King Felipe VI of Spain with Queen Letizia, US President Joe Biden with First Lady Jill Biden, Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová with partner Juraj Rizman and the wife of the President of Ukraine, First Lady Olena Zelenska.

On behalf of the Czech Republic, Prime Minister Petr Fiala and his wife Jana will attend the reception and Monday’s funeral.

They came through a special entrance and each of the VIP visitors could stand for several minutes on the side balcony, from which members of the British royal family watched the funeral ceremonies and vigils on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

US President Biden confided in a very personal and intimate reminiscence.

Queen Elizabeth II reminded him of his own mother.

“She had that caring look, ‘Are you okay? Can I help you with something? ‘ And then also, ‘Make sure you’ve done everything you have,'” the president said. ” It’s that she treated people with humility.
That’s exactly how she communicated,” Biden said shortly before the reception in Buckingham.

  • eBay

On its portal, eBay allows you to offer tickets from past events such as concerts or sporting events as souvenirs.

However, the portal’s rules also stipulate that eBay can prohibit the sale of tickets to events that are open to the public for free.

Tickets for concerts, festivals, sports and other similar events cannot be sold via eBay if these events are still in preparation.

Sellers offered these tapes as souvenirs.

People in London had the opportunity to bow to the Queen at her coffin from the middle of last week until this morning, and every day these straps were a different color.

They are marked as non-transferable and do not guarantee entry to The Hall of Westminster where the coffin was placed.

“These items are contrary to our policy, so we are removing them,” eBay said through its press office about the paper tape offering.

Some of them still appeared on eBay on Sunday morning as newly added, but there was no link to an active auction or direct sale.

According to the media, it is unclear whether the high amounts offered were real.

  • More …

Ever since the announcement of her death on September 8, the Queen has been almost ubiquitous on the streets of London.

Her portraits are on posters and large screens. Most shops have the Queen’s portrait on display in the shop window, the Fortnum & Mason department store at Picadilly Square has obscured all the commentaries from piety, and the Leicester Square cinema projects a photograph of the Queen at a young and old age, along with the years of her birth and death, on giant signboards.

Shops flooded with funeral souvenirs.
At Westminster Abbey, the service for Elizabeth II ended. At the end, there was a ceremonial military song Last Post followed by two minutes of silence for the whole of Britain.

After singing the anthem, the chief royal bagpiper finally performed on the choir with a solo lament.

Eight carriers then carried the coffin back to the carriage to the sound of the organ, which 142 Royal Navy personnel dragged to the Wellington Arch.

The ceremony opened with a speech by the Dean of Westminster, David Hoyle. The sermon was delivered by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

Prime Minister Liz Truss and commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland also spoke with the reading. The coffin is placed in front of a high altar during the service.

“We remember with gratitude her unwavering commitment to the noble sending of the Queen of Britain and the Commonwealth,” Hoyle said at the opening of the service.

Shortly after the Dean of Westminster and the singing of Psalm 42 composed for the occasion, Prime Minister Truss stepped forward with a reading from the Gospel according to John.

She chose the passage where Christ promises His followers a place in heaven.

In the southern transverse nave of the cathedral were members of royal families, presidents and prime ministers from all over the world, including French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Joe Biden.

In the northern transverse nave, holders of high British decorations – victoria’s Cross and George’s Cross – from Britain and the British Commonwealth had a place.

At the end of the ceremony, the song God Save the King was played, not God Save the Queen, as it was during the lifetime of Elizabeth II.

At the end of the service, the coffin porters placed the coffin again on a historic carriage, which members of the Royal Navy dragged to the Wellington Arch near Hyde Park, where it was loaded into a hearse.

From there, the royal family departs for Windsor Castle, which is about 20 miles west of Buckingham Palace.

To Wellington’s arch, the coffin containing elizabeth II’s remains travelled in a funeral procession from Westminster Abbey through Buckingham Palace, which had been the Queen’s home for 67 years and the birthplace of her son, the new King Charles III.

Online broadcast of the Queen’s funeral

Behind the carriage that carried the coffin to Westminster Abbey before the ceremony with the late Queen began, the current King Charles III walked with his siblings, Princess Anne, Duke of York Andrew and Earl of Wessex Edward.

Behind them were Elizabeth II’s grandsons, Prince William, Prince Harry and Peter Phillips.

The funeral was attended by 500 statesmen and other prominent personalities from all over the world.

Among the guests were, for example, US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.

People who wanted to insure places with good views along the funeral procession route had been camping on Whitehall Avenue and along the Mall leading to Buckingham Palace since Sunday evening.

Many brought folding chairs, sleeping bags and hot snacks.

They will spend more than 12 hours waiting at the roadblocks guarded by police officers, as the coffin with the remains of the queen does not start its journey through the city until after noon.

Many businesses in the city will remain closed for the funeral, while others will not open until the afternoon.

This applies, for example, to some supermarkets or fast food outlets.

Most cinemas will not be screened either, some of which offer viewers a live broadcast of the monarch’s funeral.

For example, Vue or Curzon cinema chains were invited to screenings for free, only with prior reservation. Most of the halls were already reporting sold out at the weekend.

Another way to watch the funeral in the company is to screen the funeral in Hyde Park.

TVs will be on throughout the day in most open restaurants.

  • David Beckham and mourners

Among those waiting in the queue, in which people are currently standing for about twenty-two hours, former captain of the British football team David Beckham also appeared on Friday.

He arrived at the scene in a black suit and spent thirteen long hours in the queue.

“I thought that if I arrived around two in the morning, there would not be so many people here. But I was wrong. Others thought like me,” he said .

Of course, the star footballer’s participation did not go unnoticed. “People want to take pictures with him, they forget to move forward.

It’s all crazy,” said one of the men in the queue. The media reported that Beckham inside Westminster Hall paid his respects to the Queen and could not help but cry.

According to police, waiting in line is not without incident.

A nineteen-year-old man was alleged to have been detained for sexually harassing two women in it.

A total of 435 people were to be medically treated and forty-two mourners were taken to hospital.
