Read part two here.

For four days, Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin lay in state in Westminster Hall as mourners filed past.

On 16 September, the late Queen’s four children, King Charles III, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex, kept vigil over the coffin.

The following day, her eight grandchildren, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Sussex, Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, also kept vigil over her coffin.

As foreign dignitaries arrived for the funeral, they paid their respects at Westminster Hall.

On 19 September, the funeral service took place in Westminster Abbey.

Many foreign royals, many related to the Queen, were present.

Her own family was, of course, also well represented and included her great-grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

After the service, the coffin was taken to St George’s Chapel, where a committal service was held.

In the evening, during a private ceremony, she was interred, at the same time as The Duke of Edinburgh, in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.
