GB News: Queen ‘has come home’ as thousands gather in London to welcome her coffin

3 mins read


The Queen’s coffin arrived at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening around 20:00pm BST to the sound of applause from the large crowd.

As the heavens opened upon the waiting crowd, the glass-topped hearse carried the Queen’s coffin which was lit up and had a bouquet of white flowers lying on top of it.

GB News host Dan Wootton told viewers and his guest that those gathered in London and watching at home have “seen history”.

The royal biographer expressed her thoughts on seeing the coffin moving toward the Palace.

Ms Levin said: “I think it’s incredibly moving. I saw it and I thought ‘I can’t believe this, but on the other hand, I’m very pleased she has come home.

“Poor woman, she doesn’t know where she is of course, but you just somehow want to hold onto them as long as you can, so you sort of personalise them which helps you feel a little bit better.”

The author added: “It’s very good to have her with us, I think. I’m very pleased she has arrived here safely.”

King Charles III received the coffin alongside his siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward and his two sons Prince William and Harry.

Other senior members of the Firm were also present as the Queen concluded the last part of her final journey through her country.

The coffin was welcomed by crowds which were initially silent but then erupted into cheering as the hearse entered the Palace.

Ms Levin said that “there will be a lot of crying” in the royal household as “they adore their job, and they have the same sort of sense of duty to whoever they’re with”.

She added: “They really are grateful and pleased and feel very honoured that they have had this opportunity to work for her and I think they will miss her enormously…she made everyone laugh and she was very kind.

“She was beyond just a boss. She was rather like a grandmother I think.”
