A ceremonial procession will be held on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, which will transport the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall.
Several members of the Royal Family will be following Her Majesty‘s procession as they pay tribute to their much-loved family member.
Who is following the Queen’s procession?
King Charles will be leading his family in following his Mother’s procession on Wednesday afternoon.
He will be walking behind the Queen’s coffin along with his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
The brothers will display a “show of unity” once again after William invited his brother and his wife Meghan to join him and his wife Kate an hour before they greeted the mourners at Windsor.
Only the newly appointed Prince and Princess of Wales were expected to meet the public at 4.30pm.
