Queen Elizabeth II lies in state at Westminster Hall - 9/14 (FULL LIVE STREAM)

Published on 19 Sep 2022 / In News & Politics

Thousands of Britons line the streets as Queen Elizabeth II is transferred via gun carriage from Buckingham Palace to lie in state in Westminster Hall. She will lie in state for four full days as the public and leaders from around the world come to pay their respects.

The public will be able to visit 24 hours a day between 5 p.m. local time on Wednesday and 6.30 a.m. on the day of the funeral, Monday, Sept. 19. During that time, the queen’s closed coffin will lie on a raised platform known as a catafalque, draped in the flag of the sovereign with the orb and scepter — symbols of the monarchy — placed on top.

After the funeral, the coffin will go to Windsor Castle, just outside of London, and she will be buried next to her husband, Prince Philip, at St. George’s Chapel.

The Post’s Libby Casey will anchor live coverage of the queen’s procession from Washington. Rhonda Colvin and Hannah Jewell will provide updates along the procession route in London. Read more: https://wapo.st/3Bchilf. Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube: https://wapo.st/2QOdcqK
