The last procession of Elizabeth II and the farewell of her people

Elizabeth II’s mortuary chapel located in the British Parliament has opened its doors this Wednesday at five o’clock in the afternoon, local time, to be visited by tens of thousands of citizens lined up in the center of London to say goodbye to the sovereign. The wake will be open until 6:30 a.m. next Monday morning when the coffin will be taken to nearby Westminster Abbey for a state funeral, which will be attended by dignitaries from around the world.

The public broadcaster BBC will broadcast live inside the chapel through its websites and other platforms, to facilitate that those who are abroad or unable to travel also have the opportunity to pay tribute to the Queen. Crowds of people are waiting patiently, some for days, for their turn to say goodbye to Elizabeth II in Westminster Hall, located, according to the official route, in the vicinity of Parliament, across Lambeth Bridge, and along more than 10 kilometers along the south bank of the River Thames.
