The Queen’s coffin has set off for Wellington Arch, where it will be transferred to the state hearse and driven to Windsor for a committal service at St. George’s Chapel this afternoon.
The route from Westminster Abbey is lined by the Armed Forces all the way to the top of Constitution Hill.
The procession is being led by Mounties of Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and followed by representatives of the George Cross foundations from Malta, the former Royal Ulster Constabulary, as well as representatives from the United Kingdom’s National Health Service – including May Parsons, the nurse who administered the first Covid-19 vaccine.
Detachments from the Armed Forces of the Commonwealth are also in the procession, followed by detachments of the British Armed Forces who hold the privilege of a special relationship with the Queen, including mounted elements of the Household Cavalry.
