A spectacle with royal ceremonies: the United Kingdom honored its Queen with a celebratory state funeral.
The event of the century was meticulously timed: at 11:44 a.m. (12:44 p.m. CEST), the coffin was carried from Parliament’s Westminster Hall to nearby Westminster Abbey.
The state funeral began at 12 noon. During the service, many eyes were on the youngest attendees, Elizabeth II’s great-grandchildren. Charlotte looked down a lot and kept her hands folded in front of her. She wore black. George wore a dark blue suit. Louis, Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s third child, was not seen.
A good dozen queens and kings, plus sultans, heads of state and even the Japanese imperial couple, who otherwise never attend funerals, attended the service. The six British ex-prime ministers who are still alive and the incumbent head of government, Liz Truss, also attended the state ceremony.
After the funeral service, the “Last Post” bugle sounded at 12:55 p.m. This started two minutes of silence across the country.
The national anthem was sung at 1 p.m. and the procession to Wellington Arch started at around 1:15 p.m. The coffin of the Queen was pulled by marines on a Royal Navy gun carriage.
In addition to the state crown, orb and scepter, a personal letter from Charles to his mother was enthroned on the coffin: “In loving and faithful memories. Charles R.” The R.” stands for Rex, the Latin word for «king».
King Charles III seemed moved when, together with his closest family, he escorted his mother’s coffin through the British capital. Tears shimmered in the 73-year-old’s eyes. He was followed in the funeral procession by the Queen’s other children – Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. Behind walked the grandsons of Elizabeth II. Prince Harry and his uncle Prince Andrew, as expected, did not come in uniform. They are no longer active members of the Royal Family.
The wives of the grandchildren and William’s children followed in limousines to the triumphal arch of Wellington Arch, where the coffin was transferred to the hearse by eight porters at 2 p.m. A number of soldiers in gala uniform then walked next to the car.
The “state hearse” brought the coffin into St. George’s Chapel, the chapel of Windsor Castle. The sympathy was great on the streets. The crowd threw flowers from the edge of the street as the hearse took the Queen to her beloved Windsor Castle for her funeral.
A little late, the funeral service took place shortly after 5 p.m. The private burial in St. George’s Chapel is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. The state funeral ends in the royal tomb.
