    Queen Elizabeth II has reigned over the United Kingdom for 70 years, and is a beloved figure. Hers is the country’s first state funeral since Winston Churchill was buried in 1965. Pallbearers had draped the flag over her casket and had arrived at Windsor Castle for burial.

    The queen’s official lying-in-state period had stretched for four days, after letting hundreds of thousands getting to visit her at London’s famous Westminster Hall. The entire family, including King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, down to Prince William and Kate’s 9-year-old son Prince George and 7-year-old Princess Charlotte will be present to see Queen Elizabeth II one final time. However, William’s youngest son Prince Louis will not be expected.

    Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby recalled the time when Queen Elizabeth II turned 21 and vowed to millions through a radio address that she will spend her life serving the British nation and the Commonwealth. Welby added that rarely has such a promise been so well kept.
