Crowds of people head to central London, where the funeral procession will pass with the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday afternoon, all the way from Buckingham Palace to Parliament. The venerable atmosphere of the city should not be disturbed even by planes flying overhead – Heathrow will not direct planes to approach through the city center while transporting the coffin, which will result in delays and cancellations of some flights.

“Out of respect for the period of mourning following the death of Her Majesty the Queen, some flights will be affected between 1.50 and 3.40 pm on Wednesday 14 September to ensure silence during the procession.” Wrote Airport on Twitter.

Heathrow’s runways operate over central London, so the airport will divert or cancel some services. He plans to take similar measures for Monday, September 19, when the Queen’s funeral will take place.

The line grows longer outside the Houses of Parliament in London, where he will have his first opportunity to walk next to the late King’s coffin in the evening. According to BBC News, the crowd now extends from Parliament over Lambeth Bridge to the left bank of the Thames to Westminster Bridge and the London Eye, and is therefore about 1.5 kilometres.

Each newcomer will receive a wristband with a serial number so they can leave the queue for refreshments or visit the restroom if necessary.

The coffin will be on display to the public in Westminster Hall from 6pm today until the early hours of Monday morning. Up to 750,000 people are expected to want to see it.
