The last one said goodbye to the queen before her funeral. “It was an honor”

The British said goodbye to Queen Elizabeth. For several days now, the British have been able to pay tribute to her at the coffin displayed at Westminster Hall. On Monday, September 19, at 7:30 a.m. Polish time, the last person entered the Palace of Westminster.

It was Christina Heerey, an employee of the Royal British Air Force RAF.

“It was an honor, I swore allegiance to her. I just feel very proud,” said the latest Daily Mail mourner.

She also added that it was a great privilege for her to show respect to a woman to whom she “swore allegiance”.

She came to say goodbye to the queen twice

She explained that she had stood in line twice to reach the coffin of Elizabeth II. She showed up at the palace for the first time on Sunday, after standing in line for more than eight hours, but said she had to do it a second time. That is why she positioned herself at the very end, in case of need to give way to those who were saying goodbye to the monarch for the first time.

Heerey said she stood in line for about 14 hours. “It was 14 hours worth spending.” The woman added that it is not the longest waiting time for a farewell, because she herself has a case of a friend among her relatives who waited almost 19 hours to reach the coffin of Elizabeth II.

“It just shows how much of a popular, cute person she was,” she says.

Among the mourners David Beckham. He waited 13 hours in line

According to British media, even half a million. people could come to pay their last homage to the Queen.

There were many celebrities among the people who said goodbye to Elizabeth at her coffin. David Beckham, although he could take advantage of the privilege of faster entry to the palace as a VIP, himself waited in the line for over 13 hours, like any other Brit.

“I know if my grandparents could, they would be here today. I appeared on their behalf and on behalf of my family, and to celebrate the Queen’s life with other people who came here,” Beckham said.
