17:25 pm (September 19) – Queen Elizabeth’s coffin is placed on the altar in the chapel inside Windsor Castle’s grounds, bringing to a close the public element of the funeral.

The final church service brings to an end a long day in which pomp and ceremony took pride of place, with thousands coming out to line the streets to see the procession and to pay their last respects.

The UK can rightly be proud of those involved in the organisation of the funeral and in those who accompanied the coffin in its slow progress along the streets of London and the grounds of Windsor Castle.

With the procession beamed to TV screens across the world, there is hardly a country that did not watch or get to see what proved to be a peaceful day devoid of any troubles or security risks.

It is now time for the family to be on their own and to lay their mother and grandmother to rest.


11:18 am (September 19) – Queen Elizabeth’s funeral takes place today Monday, September 19 and you can watch it live here on Euroweeklynews.
