The Queen will be laid to rest in a historic state funeral on Monday, as crowds of mourners flock to London, Windsor and other royal sites throughout the UK, with the service set to draw millions of TV viewers across the globe.
The royal family, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will be among the 2,000 people gathered at Westminster Abbey to remember the late monarch on Monday morning, before a committal service at Windsor Castle.
They will walk in procession behind the Queen’s coffin as it is carried through the Gothic church by the military bearer party.
Foreign dignitaries have been greeted at Westminster Abbey ahead of the Queen’s state funeral on Monday.
US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden walked through the doors shortly after 10am.
The King and members of the royal family then arrived at the Palace of Westminster after driving the short distance from Buckingham Palace.
King Charles waved at well-wishers from the back seat of his vehicle, which was one of four cars to arrive at Westminster Hall.
There were cheers from the crowds as the cars drove past, with the streets packed full of people trying to get a glimpse at the King.
The King arrived at the North Door of Westminster Hall at around 10.34am.
The State Gun Carriage carrying the Queen’s coffin begun its funeral procession from the Palace of Westminster to Westminster Abbey.
The coffin has been draped in the Royal Standard and carries the Imperial State Crown and a wreath of flowers containing plants from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove House.
Leading the procession are around 200 pipers and drummers of Scottish and Irish Regiments, the Brigade of Gurkhas and RAF.
Walking behind the carriage was the King and his siblings, followed by the Prince of Wales, Duke of Sussex and Peter Phillips.
The State Gun Carriage had been previously used for the funerals of King Edward VII, King George V, King George VI, Winston Churchill, and Lord Mountbatten.
