Sombre Prince Harry stares at the floor in morning suit at Queens coffin procession

Prince Harry appeared sombre and downcast as she took part in a procession behind the Queen's coffin on Tuesday afternoon.

The Duke of Sussex was one of just a few royals, including his uncle Prince Andrew, who were not wearing military uniform for the emotional and historic event.

Queen Elizabeth II's coffin was wheeled along The Mall on a gun carriage as the procession made its way to Westminster Hall, London.

The sun shone as the procession moved onto The Mall in central London and members of the crowd threw yellow roses into the road as the gun carriage passed them.

A crown was placed on a purple cushion on top of the coffin which glistened in the afternoon sunshine.

The crown was positioned in front of a wreath made up of white roses, spray white roses, white dahlias and a selection of foliage, including pine.

Behind the coffin, King Charles, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex followed on foot. And behind them came the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex.

Also forming part of the procession were loyal members of the late Queen’s staff, including two of the Queen’s Pages and the Palace Steward, who walked directly in front of the coffin.

The Pall Bearers were 10 former and serving armed forces equerries to Elizabeth II, who were at her side in uniform throughout her reign, supporting her at engagements and organising her public diary.

Other devoted members of the Queen’s household who processed included her top aide, private secretary Sir Edward Young.

There too was the Master of the Household at Buckingham Palace, Vice Admiral Sir Tony Johnstone-Burt.

As the procession continued on to Westminster Hall, The Queen Consort, Princess of Wales, Duchess of Sussex and Countess of Wessex departed Buckingham Palace in cars.

The Queen Consort and Princess of Wales travelled together, and it's believed that the Duchess of Sussex and Countess of Wessex departed together in another car.

As the procession came to a close, the late Queen's coffin was carried by guards into Westminster Hall.

Here there will be a a short service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will also be assisted by The Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, Dean of Westminster, and attended by The King and Members of the Royal family.

After the service, the Queen will then lie in state until the funeral takes place on Monday, with members of the public able to visit and pay their respects to the monarch before she is formally laid to rest.

The Queen will remain here until 6.30am on Monday September 19, when the coffin will be taken to Westminster Abbey for her state funeral.

After the funeral she will travel to Windsor Castle, where she will be laid to rest in St George’s Chapel alongside her beloved late husband, Prince Philip.
