A ceremonial procession took place on Wednesday, transporting the coffin of the Queen from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall.

From then until the state funeral on Monday, lying-in-state will take place where the mourning public may visit to pay their respects.

Hundreds of thousands of people are already crowding the near-by areas with long queues forming along the banks of the River Thames.

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