Bitter cold, waiting for 16 hours… 8 km long line for last darshan of British Queen, thousands of people waited

London: Thousands of people are braving the chilly night in London to pay their last respects to Queen Elizabeth II. Meanwhile, officials warned on Saturday that they may have to wait for 16 hours. A large number of people want to pay their last respects to the Queen in the Westminster Hall of Parliament, where her coffin is kept. The crowd has been increasing since people were admitted to the hall for the first time on Wednesday. There is at least eight kilometers of queue around Southwark Park from the hall.

Honoring people’s patience, King Charles III and his eldest son Prince William made an unannounced visit on Saturday to thank those who had been waiting. Two senior members of the royal family shook hands and thanked the long queue near Lamberth Bridge. The crowd mourned and pushed the opponents to get closer to Charles.

But we had very good friends. Made new friends. I will go to the ends of the earth for the queen.’ Simon Hopkins from central England described it as a pilgrimage.
