Queen Elizabeth’s coffin arrives at Buckingham Palace


London: The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II returned to Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening, making its way through a drizzly London as crowds lined the route for a glimpse of the hearse and to bid her a final farewell.

People parked their cars along a normally busy road, got out, and waved as the hearse, with lights inside illuminating the flag-draped coffin, made its way into London. In the city, people pressed in on the road and held their phones aloft.

Thousands gathered outside the palace cheered and clapped as the hearse swung around a roundabout in front of the queen’s official residence and through the wrought iron gates. King Charles III and other royals waited to greet the casket.

More than 26,000 people, as per an official count, paid their respects in Edinburgh to the Queen Elizabeth II at St. Giles Cathedral, queuing up through the night to file past her coffin.
