LONDON (AP) — Thousands of people spent the coldest night in months in London, queuing to see Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin. Officials warned on Saturday that arriving mourners would have to wait 16 hours for her.
A wave of people wanting to say goodbye poured into the Westminster Hall of the Houses of Parliament. There lay the Queen’s coffin, dressed in her royal standard and crowned with a diamond-encrusted crown. The number has risen steadily since the public first entered the hall on Wednesday, with lines meandering around Southwark Park and extending at least 8 kilometers (5 miles) from the hall.
