The farewell to Queen Elizabeth II has begun. Queue up to 12 hours. What else awaits the British
There will be quite a bit of a trek before many take one last look at the queen.
Mourners who wish to pay tribute of the late queen, were warned that it might be necessary to queue overnight to pass by her coffin.
Elizabeth II's coffin will now rest in St. Giles in Edinburgh so that the people of Scotland can pay their respects. Then it will stand in the Palace of Westminster.
All this awaits those who want to say goodbye to the deceased queen
The Queen's coffin will first rest in St. Giles in Edinburgh, guarded by the Vigil of the Royal Lawyer Company. Elizabeth II will then lie in the Palace of Westminster.
Westminster Hall was built in 1097 by William II and its imposing hammer beam roof dates back to the reign of Richard II at the end of the 14th century.
In Scotland, mourners will be able to walk past the coffin in St. Idzi from approximately 5:30 PM on Monday September 12 to 3:00 PM on Tuesday 13 September.
The Elizabeth II Coffin at Westminster Hall will open to the public at 5:00 PM Wednesday and will remain open 24 hours a day until closing at 6.30 a.m. on Monday, September 19 – the day of the funeral of the deceased Queen.
Mourners will be asked to pass the coffin smoothly, without stopping, to allow as many people as possible to do so. When people pay their respects, they are asked to move away from the entrances and clear the passage so that the queue can continue.
