The United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II was on Monday given a state funeral at the Westminster Abbey in London, reported the BBC.

The former monarch of the United Kingdom died on September 8 at the age of 96 at the Balmoral Castle in Edinburgh.

Elizabeth’s coffin was carried by a gun carriage from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, towed by 142 sailors from the Royal Navy, reported The Guardian. Elizabeth’s son and Britain’s new monarch King Charles III followed the coffin along with members of the royal family including Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as members of the royal household.

She was then taken to Windsor castle where her coffin was lowered into the royal vault at St George’s Chapel, marking the end of the public funeral events. The queen will be buried during a private family service next to her late husband, Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021.

The funeral procession was led by the Pipes and Drums of the Scottish and Irish regiments, along with members of the Royal Air Force and the Gurkhas, reported BBC.

Westminster Abbey is the historic church where Britain’s kings and queens are crowned. However, a monarch’s funeral service has not been held in the church since the 18th century.

The monarch’s funeral was attended by an estimated 2,000 guests, including world leaders and heads of state, according to the BBC. President of India Droupadi Murmu also attended the ceremony.
