New Delhi/London:

Satellite images over London today show Queen Elizabeth II’s mass funeral procession. Thousands of people can be seen lining the streets and areas along the processional route shortly after the Queen’s coffin left Westminster Hall from Windsor Castle, where she was buried.

Mourners who packed the streets of central London watched in awe as the coffin of the only monarch most Britons have ever known made its final journey.

A sea of ​​guns held up mobile phones in Parliament Square to film the spectacular procession of the Queen’s coffin from Westminster Abbey after a service attended by leaders from around the world.

Queen Elizabeth II’s casket was lowered into the Royal Vault of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle late Monday, ending public mourning for Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

The ‘second Elizabethan era’ was symbolically closed when the highest official in the royal household, Lord Chamberlain Andrew Parker, broke his baton.

The “state instruments” with which she was crowned in 1953 – the imperial state crown, sphere and scepter – were removed from the coffin and placed on the high altar.

Her eldest son and successor, King Charles III, placed The Queen’s Company Camp Color of the Grenadier of Guards on the coffin.
