The UK is in mourning. Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-serving monarch, will be buried on Monday. Her coffin is now in both Houses of the British Parliament, and is open day and night for people who want to come and say goodbye to the Queen in person.

A native of London, Laura sees a personal farewell to the Queen as something she must do: “She is a symbol for all of us. There will never be anyone like her again. I don’t think anyone can match her.”

“These are the moments when the whole country comes together. It is very rare and it does not last long,” says the man who wants to pay his last respects to the Queen.

Elizabeth II. He says he feels very humbled. So I went to queue in front of Westminster with determination, but a little bit more.

“I came completely unprepared, I didn’t think about it much. I only have a small backpack with water and a light jacket with me. People here tell me I can easily get into the line early in the morning, I hope it won’t, but we’ll see.”

Robert has a much more optimistic outlook, and five hours later he’s about halfway to Westminster Hall.

“It’s the only way I can express my feelings, my gratitude and my gratitude. The Queen has always been here and she has been wonderful. I’m sure Charles III. It would be the same but we are going through a tough time at the moment and we will really need the Queen to be with us through all of this. She a huge loss “.

Up to a million people

He has come to the British capital from Birmingham just for a tour, so to speak, which he will repeat after the weekend on the day of the Queen’s funeral. She told me with a smile it was worth it.

“We are going through a difficult time. We would very much like the Queen to be with us in all of this. It is a huge loss.”

These are the moments when the whole country comes together. It is very rare and does not last long. But one must bring them.

Hundreds of thousands of people are striving for this participation. British authorities were not afraid to talk about as many as a million people who would want to visit the British Parliament to see the Queen’s coffin.

But it is not certain that everyone will succeed. Those interested should expect to wait up to thirty hours for their chance.
