Alongside Prince William, now Prince of Wales, and his wife Catherine were their two elder children, George and Charlotte. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat behind King Charles and his Queen Consort Camilla.

Thousands of military personnel also took part in the procession which lasted 16 minutes between the Hall and Westminster Abbey, where the Queen’s funeral service began at 11 a.m. GMT. 

For the last five days, the Queen has been lying in state, where thousands of mourners have queued to pay their respects. The last mourner walked past the Queen’s catafalque at 6.30 a.m. this morning.
