2 mins read


The late monarch passed along Buckingham Palace for the very last time during the procession, bound for Wellington Arch. The procession is underway and passed by the royal residence for the final time for the Queen. Buckingham Palace was the residence of the late monarch for more than 70 years from the moment she pledged to serve the British people for the rest of her life. 

 

Since she rose to the throne in 1952, Bukingham Palace has been her home. The Palace is also the administrative headquarters of the Royal Family and the site of many official events.

The land on which Buckingham Palace sits in the borough of Westminster has been in the hands of the British monarchy for more than 400 years.

The Queen is on the penultimate stretch of her journey towards the King Charles VI Memorial Chapel.

 

She will stop at Broad Sanctuary Parliament Square (south and east sides), Parliament Street, Whitehall, Horse Guards including Horse Guards Arch, Horse Guards Road, The Mall, Queen’s Gardens (south and west sides), Constitution Hill and Apsley Way. 

Wellington Arch will mark the end of the first procession, as Her Majesty The Queen will then be moved onto the State Hearse. 

The coffin will then begin its journey to Windsor for the second procession.
