Author: City of London Police


Alongside the rest of the country, we are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Late Majesty The Queen and we send our condolences to her family. For 70 years, Her Late Majesty has been a symbol of inspiration and dignity and has reigned with supreme grace. This is a seismic moment for our country.

On Monday 19 September, Her Majesty The Queen’s State Funeral will take place. There will be ceremonial processions in London and Windsor. All processions and services will be broadcast on national television and radio.

  • At 10.44am, Her Majesty’s coffin will travel from the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament) to Westminster Abbey for the State Funeral. This is a very short journey, and will not be part of the public procession.
  • Her Majesty The Queen’s State Funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey at 11am. There will be a 2-minute silence at the end of the State Funeral service, at around 11:55am
  • Following the State Funeral service, the procession through London will commence.
  • At Wellington Arch, the coffin will be transferred to the State Hearse to travel to Windsor.
  • At 3:10pm, the State Hearse will travel in procession along Albert Road and the Long Walk, to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. A Committal Service for Her Majesty The Queen will take place at 4pm in St George’s Chapel.
