Queen's coffin arrives at Palace of Westminster

The coffin carrying the body of Queen Elizabeth II arrived at the Palace of Westminster on Wednesday.

Earlier, the queen left Buckingham Palace for the last time. King Charles III and other members of the royal family joined the procession. The uniforms and emblems of those who took part served as reminders of the queen's military status.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, led a brief service.

Many onlookers waited for hours to watch the procession and to pay their last respects.

One woman said, "She was one good amazing lady, and all we can say is God bless the queen."

A man said, "She was a beautiful inspiration. And it's such a moving energy in there."

The queen will lie in state until Monday morning. Sailors in the Royal Navy will then bring the coffin to Westminster Abbey for her funeral.
