Queen Elizabeth II
Hearse lined with flowers
Queen Elizabeth II’s last trip from London and to Windsor Castle was celebrated with a shower of flowers.
The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) passed countless roadside mourners during its transfer from Wellington Arch to Windsor Castle. Many of them paid their last respects to their late Queen by throwing flowers towards the convoy and hearse in which the Queen left London for the last time.
During the final procession over the so-called Long Walk and the inner courtyard of the castle, the glazed hearse was covered with numerous flowers, as the recordings show. The members of the royal family walked behind the car one last time before the coffin was carried to the St. George’s Chapel for the funeral service, which has been taking place there since around 5:00 p.m.
One last goodbye
The final section of the state funeral finally takes place behind closed doors. Members of the royal family attend the private funeral in the King George VI side chapel. Queen Elizabeth II finds her final resting place there alongside her husband Prince Philip (1921-2021) and her parents King George VI. (1895-1952) and Queen Mother (1900-2002).
