ESPECIALLY THAT OF ENGLAND AND DEPENDENCIES....

 

King Charles III, his sons William and Harry and other senior royals have joined a solemn procession behind Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin through the silent streets of London, following a state funeral of matchless pageantry at Westminster Abbey.

Hundreds of thousands of people crammed into central London on Monday to witness a ceremony attended by leaders and royalty from across the globe, a fitting end for Britain’s longest-serving monarch who won widespread respect during 70 years on the throne.

Her flag-draped casket was pulled on a gun carriage the short distance from Westminster Hall to the Abbey by 142 sailors with arms linked.

A bell tolled and bagpipes skirled.

Pin-drop silence fell over London’s Hyde Park nearby as thousands of people, who for hours had picnicked and chatted, went quiet the second the Queen’s coffin appeared on screens erected for the occasion.

 

Shortly before, hundreds of armed personnel in full ceremonial dress had marched in a historic display of kilts, bearskin hats, scarlet tunics and brass bands.

Inside the abbey, lines of scripture were set to music that has been used at every state funeral since the early 18th century.

Among those walking behind the casket was the Queen’s great-grandson and future king, nine-year-old Prince George.

The 2000-strong congregation included some 500 presidents, prime ministers, foreign royal families and dignitaries including Joe Biden of the United States and leaders from Australia, New Zealand, France, Canada, China, Pakistan and the Cook Islands.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, told the congregation that the grief felt by so many across Britain and the wider world reflected the late monarch’s “abundant life and loving service”.

“Her late majesty famously declared on a 21st birthday broadcast that her whole life would be dedicated to serving the nation and Commonwealth,” he said.

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

 

Among the crowds who came from around Britain and beyond, people climbed lampposts and stood on barriers and ladders to catch a glimpse of the royal procession – one of the largest of its kind in modern history in the capital.

Millions more will watch on television at home on a public holiday declared for the occasion, the first time the funeral of a British monarch has been televised Around the wider capital, normally bustling streets were deserted.

The Queen died on September 8 at her Scottish summer home, Balmoral Castle, aged 96.

The 40th sovereign in a line that traces its lineage back to 1066, she came to the throne in 1952, Britain’s first post-imperial monarch.

The tenor bell of the Abbey – the site of coronations, weddings and burials of English and then British kings and queens for almost 1000 years – tolled 96 times.
