Queen’s coffin carried into Westminster Abbey for funeral

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin arrived at Westminster Abbey on Monday for a grand state funeral attended by 2,000 guests, including leaders from around the world.

In a tradition dating back to Queen Victoria’s funeral in 1901, the state gun carriage bearing the coffin was hauled to the abbey by Royal Navy sailors, followed in a solemn procession by King Charles III and other senior royals.
