Procissão fúnebre da rainha Isabel II

By Jordi Bou

September 9, 2022 - Antes do fineral de estado, o caixão da rainha Isabel II será levado do palácio de Buckingham pelas ruas de Londres para Westminster Hall em procissão lenta, onde ficará em câmara ardente por quatro dias, permitindo que o público lhe preste a sua homenagem.

Preceding the funeral on Sep 19, the Queen’s coffin will be borne from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall for the beginning of four days’ lying in state. The coffin will be carried on a horse-drawn gun carriage of The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, accompanied by a military parade and members of the Royal Family.

Lying in state is usually reserved for sovereigns, current or past queens consort, and sometimes former prime ministers.

During the formal occasion, the closed coffin will rest on a raised platform – known as a catafalque – in the middle of the vast, medieval Westminster Hall, the oldest building within the Palace of Westminster. The hall will be open to the public, 24 hours a day, for four days.

The last member of the Royal Family to lie in state was the Queen Mother in 2002, when more than 200,000 people queued up to view her coffin.
