UK: Queen’s coffin arrives at Buckingham Palace

Source: CBS News

“The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II has arrived back at Buckingham Palace, the Associated Press reported. Earlier Tuesday, the late monarch left Scotland for the final time. A military C-17 Globemaster carrying the queen’s remains touched down Tuesday evening at RAF Northolt, an air force base in the west of London, about an hour after it left Edinburgh, Scotland, the Associated Press reported. The State Hearse carrying the coffin made its way through the rainy streets of London, where crowds of mourners lined up to pay their respects. Earlier in the day, crowds filled Scotland’s capital to pay their respects to the queen in person. Hundreds of thousands are expected to wait hours for an opportunity to see the queen’s coffin later this week as it lies in state at Westminster Hall.” (09/13/22)
